John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible says: “when overwhelmed with distress through outward trouble, or in the lowest condition with respect to spiritual things; when grace is weak, corruptions strong, temptations prevail, and afflictions are many; then does the Lord support and sustain his people, and strengthens them with strength in their souls.” What a great God we have. The word strength (Tsuwr) means a rock. So that’s how strong & sturdy our God is, & He imparts it to us.
Well I survived the promotion night, but barely. My son did not do well. He was such a handful, I can’t even put into words how crazy he was behaving. I’ve never seen him this bad in fact. So I was exhausted & mad before it even began. I’m so thankful that God is as strong as a rock for me to cling to.
Lord, help me to cling to You & never let go! Amen.
