Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me” (Psalm 23:4).

Here we have the insignificant little word “for,” which connects to unspeakable glory. David sings of this and expresses his faith very vividly in Psalm 23. He should have collapsed in fear and trembling because he was surrounded by enemies, but he clung to the Lord, “For thou art with me.” This “for” emphasizes the exalted person of God. If the Lord has greater, all-overpowering room in your life, you can always exclaim a victorious “for.” You have reason to fear and worry, but dare to say, “I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.” This little word also solves the acute question of powerlessness. You may say, “I have no strength. I want to serve the Lord better, but I find closed doors everywhere.” Be of good courage, for the Lord accepts your weakness. The Psalmist testifies, “He weakened my strength in the way” (Psalm 102:23). But hear the Lord’s promise, “I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength” (Revelation 3:8). Because you are weak, He is mighty in you. Because you can do nothing, He can!
