Stronger than you think – Psalm 28

Ever find yourself smiling at your little self? I remember being on a bus, and as more and more people were packing in, I exclaimed, “The driver must be so strong to be able to make the bus go with all these people on it!” My dad explained how it was the engine that did the work, and the driver didn’t have to be strong to drive the bus. I listened, but I still didn’t really get it until much older.

They say there aren’t many atheists on a plane in distress. When we are deep in trouble, we call out to God with every breath. No hesitation there. But do we trust that he has all that we need? That he will give us all the strength we need? Like the bus driver, we do have to be proactive – we have our part to play; but the power to make it work, the strength to make it go, that comes from God. He is the strength, the power, the fortress. And I haven’t got to make it happen; he is my strength, my hope and my shepherd.
