Growth & Power! 

Many Christians backslide because this truth is not clearly taught. Some are unable to stand against temptation or their old nature. 

Though they strive to do their best to fight against sin and to serve God, they have no strength. They have never really grasped the secret that the Lord Jesus will continue His work in the believer every day from heaven. But there is one condition: Time alone with the Lord Jesus each day is the indispensable condition of growth and power.

Read Matthew 11:25–30

Analogy! 

A Christianity without the Bible is much like a doctor who misdiagnoses a patient and then prescribes the wrong treatment. The patient doesn’t get well, and he has a false sense of security, blindly trusting that what he has been told is the truth.

Through Mud and Mire!

Through mud and mire…
or tears and fear…
we can do all things through Christ…
who is always near.
For He’ll never leave us…
nor forsake us in any trouble…
even sending angels to help…
and hold us up to not stumble.
For though struggles are real…
with deep wounds concealed…
we can overcome all obstacles…
as we lean on the One who can heal.

“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.” Psalm 40:2

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

Dear Lord, only You know the multitude who are struggling to overcome the obstacles that they face during these trying times. Please give them the strength to persevere. Help them out of the pit of despair and bring healing and restoration to all the broken places in their lives… in Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen.
