Let the weak say, I am strong. Joel 3:10
Day by day, we live in a constant struggle which sometimes makes us feel that everything rises against us to crush us: attacks at work; attacks at home, in marriage; children, etc. It is like all of a sudden a great wave rushed at us and dragged us to the deep end with all its strength to make us drown.
We feel that we have no strength to resist that onslaught, for it is too powerful. As much as we try to escape, we cannot. We see no way out for us but only a very disastrous ending. At those moments, we give into any kind of thought seeking something that sheds a light on that which is happening to us.
Yet that which is happening is so intense that our mind does not come to understand any of it. It is like everything is dark, so it is difficult to have any clarity under these circumstances. Only if we are firm on the eternal rock that Christ is, we will be able to survive, for this is the only anchor that keeps us steady so we are not dragged away.
Therefore, it is important for us to put on the whole armor of God, keep praying and totally surrender, with no double mind, so we can stand and withstand in the evil day.
