You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.” – Proverbs 24:10

Sometimes when we face troubles and problems, our heart gets tired. We fear about our future and as fear grips our heart we could sense that our strength was decreasing. 

You might be going through such moment in your life. You might feel that you have no strength to move on. You might feel that you are sinking. All the doors in front of you might have shut.  Do not get discouraged. 

Bible says in Isaiah 40:29 “He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength."

In 1 Kings 17:12, we read about the condition of a widow’s life. She doesn’t have bread. All that she had was a handful of flour and a little oil. Nothing she had. Her life was in a worse state. She was gathering sticks to prepare a meal and after that they have nothing to hold on. That is the reason she told Elijah that she and her son might eat it and die. 

She had lost all that she had. No more hope in her life. She was weary. But before she had met Elijah, God has planned a great thing in her life. In verse 9 God says, “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. See, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you.

God has a plan that Elijah should be provided by the same widow whose present condition was so terrible. She might have felt that she was so weak and her strength was so small because of the tough situation she faced. But God had a greater plan about her life. God provided for her needs. She and her household ate for so many days. She lived with joy and peace.

Years ago I met a young guy who got an arrear in a particular subject. He was a studious guy and he could not accept the fact that he had failed in the exam. It was a tough subject and as he thought about his future he became so worried. All the days he will be lamenting about his failure. He became weak and he could not do anything. But one day he had put his trust upon Jesus and begun to pray a lot for his future. God gave him His strength and blessed the work of his hands. Now he is working in a big multi-national company with a good salary. 

My dear young friends, do not worry about your future. Do not worry about the temptations and trials that you are facing. God will give you His power to overcome all your failure. Today God says to you that He has greater plans for you and you will live in peace. God will remove your debts. He will give you His strength to go through the present situation you are in and He will bring you out victorious. You will be blessed richly for God loves you.
