The apostles, on the brink of preaching the Gospel to a world hostile to any other king, were reminded by Jesus: “I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20).

Whenever God promises to be with us, remember that His grace is enough for us (2 Corinthians 12:9)! May we boast all the more gladly in our weaknesses so that the power of Christ rests upon us. I’m okay with being weak. “For when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Corinthians 9:10b).
