Daily Courage – January 14

 
from Day by Day with the Persecuted Church

Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you. (Isaiah 54:10)

Mehdi Dibaj

The Almighty God not only gives us strength to walk with Him, to go forward with Him or to go up with Him but also to come down with Him to the valley of the battle.

Or should I say, I may go up to Him – He will come down to me.

I may sit, in the heavenly places, on His “broad shoulders.” He will kneel down with me in the valley of battle and hold my hand. The more I visit Him up there – the more I experience His help down here.

The mountains of life may be shaken, the pains of being separated from my beloved family may hurt, the prison cell may be dark – His unfailing love for me is not shaken and my love for Him is growing stronger every day.

Mehdi Dibaj is from Iran. While this book was being compiled, Mehdi Dibaj had been in prison for nine years. Early in 1994 he was released, but was murdered six months later. His courtroom defense was edited to form part of this book.
