Strength for Tomorrow.

Dealing with COVID-19 has been difficult for me. But it has been very painful for people who have lost loved ones and devasted others financially. We all look forward to the end of this illness, but I’m afraid that we may have to deal with it for a long time.

I hope we have the strength for whatever lies ahead.


A pandemic like COVID-19 doesn’t end overnight. Resuming and rebuilding life takes time. Without treatments that can cure and vaccines that can prevent COVID-19, the threat of this illness looms over us.


Living with that uncertainty is a constant reminder of how little control we have over what happens tomorrow. But the Bible assures us that God is our hope and strength no matter what happens. Confident that God will empower the church to fulfill its purpose in making God known, even in the midst of great suffering,

Paul writes:

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.  

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. 

Ephesians 3:16–21 

No one knows what pleasures or perils tomorrow will bring. We do know that God loves us more than we can imagine and that his power is our strength for whatever lies ahead.

In what ways does the promise of God’s strength and purpose for your life affect how you face an uncertain future?
