Your Strength

What makes you strong? The sons of Korah wrote,
Blessed is the man whose strength is in You,
Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.
(Psalm 84:5).
Many find their strength in a bottle, a friend, a job, family, possessions, psychology, health, wealth, or a host of other things, but the only place to find true lasting strength is in the Lord. I have found the words of this psalm to be true. Anything on which we seek to be strong or in which we seek to have a better life, fails. Only in the Lord do we get stronger.
The sons of Korah also said that the man is blessed who sets his heart on pilgrimage. The context speaks of the place where God dwells. Thus, blessed is the person who journeys, makes a pilgrimage to the place where God dwells, which now is the church.
Find your strength and your life, in the Lord and in His church.
