Hello everyone and welcome back to Moments Spent with God…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I am so happy to have you with me today and my prayer for you; is that you will discover God in a very real way, as you begin your week…that you may know His presence, as you walk through each day of this brand new week!
You know…how is it that we find it difficult to admit to a form of weakness in our lives? Could it be that it makes us feel, as though we aren’t a good person or worth anything in life? I remember a time in my own life, when I felt exactly like this. As I look back now on those moments, I have come to realize that not admitting to my weaknesses, was only due to the weight of what I was already experiencing at the time. Sometimes, I think that if we have to admit to one more thing, when we are already experiencing other problems and circumstances in our lives; then just maybe, we will begin to feel that we won’t be able to stand up against the weight of these difficult and overwhelming moments.
Today, we need to realize that admitting to a form of weakness; is the beginning of a healing. When we are attempting to remain strong and hold onto our weaknesses…as a means of protecting ourselves, from what we may have to admit to ourselves; then we only find that we remain stuck in that form of weakness, while we begin to feel drained and overwhelmed, by the weight of that weakness.
For many years of my life, I held tightly to everything I was going through at the time. The only bad thing about that; was that I never moved ahead in my life, for the longest time…and God never had a chance to step in and work because I was not letting go, in a way where God could step in and exchange that weakness, for a strength and new growth; that could help me to move forward in life.
You know…while we are concerned about accepting failure over the weaknesses in our lives; I truly believe that God is more concerned about repairing those weaknesses and making us stronger; so we can move out of a place, where we can find ourselves easily vulnerable to more weaknesses and problems.
When we think about our weaknesses; we truly have our thinking backwards because God doesn’t want us to see them as a put down in our lives; but rather, He wants us to see them, as a means of correcting and fixing the weakness; so we will become less vulnerable to the control that Satan can have over those weaknesses.
As you can see…Satan not only afflicts us with these weaknesses; but it’s his desire to keep them alive. When he can make us see that by admitting to our weaknesses; that we are nothing; then we will not admit to them and by doing so, we will find ourselves continually stuck in the muck and mire of that weakness and his control over that weakness.
Today, we need to come to a God, who will never put us down…a God who will walk way beyond any form of weakness; to care for us. When we choose to bypass what we think; to open ourselves up to God; then we will soon see how these weaknesses that once brought us down, can be exchanged for a strength that can lift us high above these moments of despair.
Blessings so much on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
