I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from God , who made heaven, and earth, and mountains. He won’t let you stumble, your Guardian God won’t fall asleep. Not on your life! Israel’s Guardian will never doze or sleep. Psalm121:1‭-‬4 MSG

Turning to a crooked way at a time such as this may look so cheap, easy and convenient. But lasting help comes only from God. No matter how hard, difficult and biting the time may be, never take to the alternative way or compromise your allegiance to the Lord. 

As you steadfastly set your focus on Jesus just like a servant sets his eyes on his master or a maid on her mistress, you will surely not be disappointed nor miss your reward. If you continue to trust in God wholeheartedly, He will for sure make you strong, stable and establish your feet on the rock.

Your help is in the name of the Lord, wait for Him and He will cause your soul to escape as a bird from the snare of the fowlers. He will hide you in the secret place of His tabernacle where no disaster, pestilence or any assailant can overtake you. Don’t give up yet, but keep looking above and you will never be put to shame. May the Lord make your feet strong like the deer that you may ride triumphantly upon your high places.

Your brother,

Olufemi Babalola
