When we face hardships and feel too weak to persevere on our own, Alistair Begg reminds us that we are in a good place. Our strength should come solely from God, not from ourselves. The Apostle Paul said in First Corinthians that to rely on God’s power, we must not be preoccupied with things of this world. Earthly possessions will evaporate. Only God’s strength and our dependence on Him will see us through life’s trials.
