Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday and welcome today, to Moments Spent with God…through the Risen Hope Ministries! It’s so good to be back, after a night off, of feeling a little under the weather. I pray that your day is going well and that we all will truly experience the powerful hand of God in our lives today!
The past couple of days have been kind of difficult for me to get through, after a bad round of chronic pain. As I was sitting quietly in my office the other night…a question came to my mind that really brought me alive. Do we truly realize that it’s God’s strength that kicks in and brings us back to our feet, when we feel as though we are about to give up and fall beneath our weaknesses?
Have you ever experienced a moment in your life, when you were right on the edge of giving up and then out of nowhere, your thoughts began to shift and you began to see a glimpse of hope that brought you back to life and kept you moving forward…even if it was a little bit at a time? Well…that was God!
I don’t know about you; but I have had moments…especially while facing chronic pain, when I know in my heart; that I should not be even walking. I see how the pain makes the rod in my right leg drag, while trying to control a left leg that is very weak, due to the pain…but yet, I keep going emotionally and physically, which continually amazes me!
You know…the way I see it; is when we run out of strength; it’s as if God steps directly into our bodies and becomes everything we need and when we feel as if we would like to throw in the towel and quit; He fills us once more with Himself, as His peace begins to calm a tired mind. Anytime we feel as if something has kicked into overdrive…that’s the presence of God…lifting us back to where we should be in life.
You know…it’s so easy to talk about God’s strength; but to experience His powerful strength is completely different. I think the reason why we don’t always experience this powerful strength; is because we are too busy focusing on a weak problem and I truly believe that whatever we seek after; will be what either helps us or fails us. Today, we need to realize that focusing on a broken problem; is only going to drain us of the strength that can truly keep us standing.
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.” Do we realize that when we allow God to work through our weaknesses; that we are actually experiencing the hand of God upon us? It’s through moments of weakness; that we truly experience the powerful presence of God within our lives; but many times we miss out on the powerful strength that can keep us standing because we have chosen to lean on a weak circumstance.
No matter what you’re facing today…experience God…let Him touch your life with a strength that will ignite you and bring you back to your feet, where you truly belong with Him…rather than always living with a weak and broken down circumstance.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
