The past couple of nights have been nights of pain and sleeplessness. Even though I struggle from time to time with this; I continue to press on because I know that if I quit; then Satan wins the battle.
One thing that I have definitely learned through moments such as these; is how God can truly be my strength…and I have seen moments, when I could barely get off my daybed and walk…but I did walk.
Isn’t it amazing how we can become so easily tied into the moments that are bringing us down; that we forget that we have a God to turn to…a God that can allow His strength to kick in and take us way beyond; what we ever thought we could ever accomplish.
Even now, as I’m writing you; I have barely had any good rest in two day; but I have accomplished so much through this time; that these moments continue to remind me that there is a powerful God in control of my life.
In Isaiah 40:29, we read… “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” Do we realize that weakness is actually the greatest opportunity to experience a different strength…a strength that comes from a powerful God? Why do we allow ourselves to become so caught up in weakness; that we lose out on this powerful strength…a strength that can take us further away from the weaknesses that we’re facing?
No matter what your facing right now…and no matter how long you have faced it; there is strength for each new day…a strength that can truly carry us over the humps of life…praise Him!
