Hello everyone! I am so happy to have you with me today, on Moments Spent with God! I pray that we will truly experience some special moments with God today; that will help us to rise above the pain and heartache in our lives!
Let me ask you a question, as we begin today. Can we say that we truly know what it’s like, to experience the depth of a powerful God in our lives? Today, I was thinking on how easy it is for us to limit God’s strength, just by the way we think and react to life.
Lately, I have experienced times, when my day gets so busy; that I wonder how I will ever get through it…especially with all the pain and tiredness I experience. Then the end of the day comes and I think to myself… “I definitely could not have made it through that day without God.” It’s as if I can remember the exact moments, when His strength kicked in and took over…as though I was being lifted up in the arms of God and carried through the moments in my day that I could have never gotten through on my own.
Why do we limit God’s strength in our lives, when His strength is what we need the most? I can see it now…here God is reaching down to help us through a difficult moment and for some time, we let Him have His way with the situation; but then doubt creeps in and from there, we place a cap over His strength, which only drains us of the perfect strength we need, so we can continue to remain standing during these difficult times in our lives.
Let me ask you another question, as we continue. Have you ever truly put God’s strength to the test? In other words, have you ever pressed on, even during the times that seemed impossible? How many times are we going to give into the deceptive thoughts that say, “I can’t go on anymore?” First of all, do we realize that when we speak these words; that we are actually shutting off God’s power, while we are laying out the welcome mat, for Satan to step in and have his way?
You know…it’s so easy to tell others that our God is a big God but when it comes to truly experiencing God’s power and strength within our lives, can we say that we are allowing this big God to work in ways that would actually make us stand in amazement, as to what He could truly do?
In my own life, I just love a good “wow factor,” when it comes to God! I not only like to read about His strength and power; but I also long to experience the distance He can go within my own life. When I see God do something in my day; that I never expected to have happened; I know that God is caring for me in a personal way…just for that moment…and that causes my hands to go up to Him in praise.
Today, we need to realize that when we limit God’s strength; then we are actually tying up the hands of a powerful God…a God who can go beyond our own limitations and make a way for us to come through these troubling times.
No matter what you may be facing today…turn to the One, whose strength knows no limitation. Let Him be the one who carries you through these difficult times, when your strength is gone.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
