“You’re going to be an exchange student!” I was seventeen and thrilled to hear I was approved to study in Germany. But it was only three months before my departure, and I had never taken a class in German.

Sometimes I reflect on that insight when I consider what it means to grow as a follower of Jesus.

Paul shares the secret of his progress: “I can do all this through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:12–13).

Life has its challenges. But as we turn to the One who has “overcome the world” (John 16:33), we discover not only that He’s faithful to get us through but also that nothing matters more than closeness to Him. He gives us His peace, helps us to trust, and empowers us to go the distance as we walk with Him.
