Where is your Strength?

By: G.J. Fortier

“I said to the one standing before me, ‘I am overcome with anguish because of the vision my lord, and I feel very weak. How can I, your servant, talk with you, my lord? My strength is gone, and I can hardly breathe.’

Again, the one who looked like a man touched me and gave me strength. ‘Do not be afraid, you who are highly esteemed’, he said, ‘Peace! Be strong now, be strong.’”

“When he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, ‘Speak, my lord, since you have given me strength.’” Daniel 10:16-19 (NIV)

Many years ago, when I was in my twenties, I was at a friend’s apartment playing Dungeons & Dragons—yes, I played D&D when I was younger … and may again considering the state of what’s considered “entertainment” that they’re pumping out over the airwaves these days—with a group of my friends when something very unusual occurred.

“by his wounds you have been healed”.

For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the shepherd and overseer of your souls. 2 Peter 2:21-25 (NIV)

We are living in strange times. Would you agree?

I often wonder if the state of the world, and the United States in particular, is worse now than it was in the past. After all, we, the generations who are alive today, cannot be blamed for placing much more emphasis on what we are actually experiencing, as opposed to what we haven’t personally witnessed (on TV), but only read about in books or (more likely) watched on the History Channel. I’ve heard people say that “it’s definitely worse now”, or things have always been “this bad”, it’s just that we hear about more of “it” because of today’s technology, social media, etc. That’s a valid point. But these people have chosen a more cynical view of the happenings around the globe than I do.
