Wednesday, September 12

God is the one who . . . energizes you.—Phil. 2:13.


Jehovah helped the Israelites to defeat the Amalekites and the Ethiopians, and he gave Nehemiah and his associates the power to complete the rebuilding work. God will similarly give us strength to stand firm against opposition, apathy, and anxiety so that we can carry out our preaching work. (1 Pet. 5:10) We do not expect Jehovah to perform miracles for us. Rather, we should do our part. That includes our reading God’s Word daily, preparing for and attending the meetings weekly, feeding our mind and heart through personal study and family worship, and always relying on Jehovah in prayer. Let us never allow other pursuits and activities to interfere with the means that Jehovah uses to strengthen and encourage us. If you sense that your hands have dropped down in any of these areas, ask for God’s help. Then see how his spirit “energizes you, giving you both the desire and the power to act.” w16.09 1:12

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

Despite our trials, tribulations, sickness, Jehovah is the one who 'energizes' those who are looking forward to the New World. I really enjoyed this daily text. Now, when Friends compliment me, not only I can say ' it's Jehovah' but now can cite Philippians 2:13. Jehovah is the one who energizes me to not give up and keep running this course.
