August 11 – Be Strong Now

““Do not be afraid, you who are highly esteemed,” he said. “Peace! Be strong now; be strong.” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, “Speak, my lord, since you have given me strength.”” Daniel 10:19 (NIV)

Since he was in his mid-teens, Daniel had been an exile in Babylon - almost all his life. In these words, the prophet is replying to a message from God. We are reminded of what happens when the Word of God comes to us. God spoke to Daniel through an angel. That may not happen to us but He has given us His Word in the Bible. When we recognize the Lord speaking to us through His Word we can sense that it strengthens us.  So when we feel the need of spiritual strength we can find it in God's Word as he gave it to us.  This makes us eager to have him continue speaking to us. We too can say as Daniel did, “Speak my lord.”
