Healing truth : Our strength comes from hearing God's voice - the Word
St. Bernard says that in the midst of our struggles, if we attempt to do it on our own strength, it will be as though we are trying to stop a raging current. What can we do then? We must seek the Word. We have need of strength, strength from above. Thus, if the mind does NOT RELY ON ITSELF, but is strengthened by the Word, it can gain such command over ITSELF, that no unrighteousness will have power over it.
