A while back, I had a friend struggling with difficult issues.
She shared how she wished she had the strength to deal with the pain she was feeling, but said she felt weak and helpless. I found a few verses in Ephesians that I wrote down on an index card and gave to her. The text is:
“[We have] his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms” (Eph 17:19-20, NIV).
I wanted to remind her that she wasn’t facing her troubles on her own. God was willing to give her the same power he used to raise Jesus from the dead. It doesn’t get more powerful than that!
When you feel like you’re struggling, you don’t have to reply on your own strength; ask God for some of his incomparably great power.
