Like David, strengthen yourself in the Lord
I praise God for hearing His people's prayers and cries. Another expected typhoon ("Pepeng") weakened and veered course yesterday. That spared the country reeling from the destruction brought by the floods from storm "Ondoy." With or without calamity, we all need to carry each other's burdens (Galatians 6:2). At the same time, like David, we also need to learn individually to "strengthen yourself in the Lord" (1 Samuel 30:6b). And then, leave the rest to Him. In the future, God can use the strengthening and comfort you received from Him to strengthen and comfort others (2 Cor 1: 4).
