“The LORD gives strength to his people, the LORD blesses his people with peace.”
Working here in Mandritsara, we often feel our own weakness. Whether it’s when we’re tired after busy oncalls, or we are confronted with patients who we can’t help, or we just consider the challenges that face us here as we say goodbye to teammates, we feel weak. We feel acutely that we lack the strength to keep going or the power to change difficult situations.
Psalm 29 reminds us of our awesome God – his power, his splendour, his glory. He is totally unlike anything in this world we might look to for help or strength. And so verse 11 is amazing – this awesome God is the LORD who gives strength to his people. We are therefore so thankful for your prayers for us – it is God who gives us strength for the work here so please keep praying that He would do that, and that we would rely on Him and not ourselves….
