May 21

“He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.” Colossians 1:28-29 (NIV)

This is the testimony of the apostle Paul. Was he doing his work as a teacher of the gospel in his own strength? No, of course not, that is the point of this verse. It was a struggle to encourage people to grow in their faith but Paul struggled with energy from God. And did you notice what he felt about the help God was giving him? He said God’s energy was working in him powerfully. What has God given to you today to do that you are struggling with? God’s energy is available to you and me too, and it will work powerfully in us as we yield to Him and trust Him.
