Last night after falling to sleep, I was awakened by chronic pain. Lately, I have been trying to catch up with some much needed housework, which these legs of mine just don’t seem to want to do.
After several days of taking care of what needed to be done, I started to feel pretty worn out…and in a lot of pain; but as I sat up in bed last night; God began to minister to my spirit and remind me that even though my strength was gone, due to the pain I had been experiencing; that He still had a limitless strength and power…one that could kick into overdrive for me.
You know…I think that there can be moments in our lives, when we tend to forget that there is a greater power available to us…a power that can rest upon us and truly be the strength that can help us to overcome these moments of weakness that we experience from time to time. It seems as though these difficult times are only embedded within us by Satan, to remind us that we have reached the end of the road, while attempting to lead us deeper into despair; but 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.”
The encouragement that I would like to leave with you today; is to rejoice during these hard and difficult times of life, rather than allowing these moments to take you down and out of commission with God and life itself…because these painful moments are not leading us to defeat, even though they may try to convince us of that; but rather, they are actually leading us closer into the arms of One who can hold us…love us…protect us and be the strength we need, during these unexpected moments of weakness. I truly believe that once we can see our circumstances in the way this verse is relaying it to us; that this is when we will truly come to see that these difficult times can never defeat us; but rather, they can be exchanged for a greater strength.
Have a very blessed day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
