“…but the people who know their God will display strength and take action.”
(Daniel 11:32, New American Standard Bible)
“…but the people that know their God shall prevail and succeed.” (Douay-Rheims Bible)
We all know pain and suffering and conflict; life actually presents us with many—in different forms and sizes. But instead of dwelling on these, we fix our eyes on the answer to all of life’s pain and suffering and conflict. We fix our eyes on GOD.
Therefore, we say to ourselves: KNOW YOUR GOD.
In our sicknesses and diseases, in our need and poverty, in our heartaches and troubles, in our guilt and shame, we say to ourselves: KNOW YOUR GOD.
With the threat of natural disasters and calamities, with the threat of injustice and war, with the threat of economic and political failure, we say to ourselves: KNOW YOUR GOD.
And as we enter our 39th year, as we claim our Promised Land, as we receive God’s promise of new beginnings, as we experience victories upon victories, we say to ourselves: KNOW YOUR GOD.
Because only the people who know their God shall display strength, shall prevail, shall succeed.
