That he would grant you…to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man. Ephesians:3:16

Paul warns Timothy that in the last days perilous times will come. The Greek word for perilous is chalepo , meaning stress, pressure, fierce, dangerous, difficult. These last days are filled with “strengthsapping pressure.” Let us pray for one another that our strength will be renewed this day so that ours will not be a fragile joy, but a durable trust, a persevering confidence in the face of the worst of adversities. —Marilyn MacMullen

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,

Let this blest assurance control,

That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate,

And hath shed His own blood for my soul. —H. Spafford
