God Will Strengthen You

Sis. Stella Dhinakaran

Each one of us have to encounter challenges and hardships for a season of our lives. In these situations, one thing that remains steadfast which never changes is the Word of God. When you believe and proclaim His promises, you shall overcome all difficulties, for the Lord works on your behalf. When Shimei humiliated David with curses and abusive words, the Lord strengthened David to tolerate disgrace and dishonor that was meted out to him. David endured it. Soon things turned upside down, and he received all the things he had lost earlier. The Lord exalted him to become “the King,” and Shimei had to hang his head down in shame. This is how God saved David from his enemies and blessed him with good things.

How much reproach, abusive and offensive words my husband, Dr. D. G. S. Dhinakaran had to face when he founded the Karunya Educational Institution! However, the Lord was pleased because His servant endured these abuses and looked only at Him and continued His work patiently. Because the Lord did good things, Karunya has become a blessed institution today! It has become a place of blessing to numerous students. Even those who spoke against this institution are reaping good from it.

My dearly beloved! Even when we fear the Lord and walk according to His will, we will certainly face such reproaches and abuses. But, if we hold fast to the Lord in those difficult and challenging situations, we “shall not lack any good thing” (Psalm 31:19; 34:10). We will derive strength from God Almighty, who alone can help us and grant us victory.
Blessed Saviour! You bore all humiliation with patience. Strengthen me to face all the challenges that I encounter in life. I place my trust in you, Lord, for You alone can deliver me and keep me safe. Lord, keep me away from all reproaches and exalt me.

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
