As a young girl, I remember singing the song… “Jesus Loves Me”…and even at this age in my life, I love the words that say… “Little ones to Him belong, they are weak but He is strong.”
We all face weaknesses in our lives…some more than others. In my own life, I have experienced many moments of weakness…brought about by a dysfunctional home life and sexual abuse…but one thing I found out over time; is that just because we endure moments of weakness; that doesn’t mean that God is a defeated god, within our lives. In fact, I have come to see that He takes the weakness…brought about by some deep embedded problem and He takes it and uses these weaknesses to make us stronger in Him.
In 2 Corinthians 12:9, we read… “And he said unto me,” My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” In other words…what was meant to defeat God’s plan…and our lives; has now become used by God, to strengthen us and bring honor and glory to His holy name.
Just because you are facing difficult times that seem to have no end; doesn’t mean that you have been taken to a place of total defeat; but rather, it’s one of the greatest opportunities, to become stronger…even stronger; then before the problem first entered your life.
Never allow Satan to convince you that there is no way out…and that you will remain in these moments of weakness; but rather, lift your head up to the heavens and anticipate God’s next move…as He takes your weakness and turns it around, into something stronger…something that can cause you to rise above the despair in your life!
