Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Tuesday to you all! I sure hope that your day is going well…and even more, I pray that you will discover a strength that can keep you lifted up during the hard and difficult times of life…a strength that only comes from a powerful God…Amen!!
As we face some difficult times in this world right now…we can find that the strength we once saw within ourselves, has now begun to dwindle away, as these trying times seem to weigh heavily upon us. We can even experience moments when we just don't have the ump in us to face another day. One thing we must remember, while experiencing times such as these; is to not allow what surrounds us…to continually weaken us more and more; but rather, we should allow these times to strengthen us, until we have risen above them. In other words…it's how we react to these difficult times; that will either allow a perfect strength to take hold of our spirits or not.
Last night, as I was thinking on this, while spending time alone with God; He began to show me that we can ask Him for His strength through prayer; but it's also the determination to pursue the desire of our hearts…that truly builds us up, from the weakness we may have fallen prey to. In other words…it's getting an attitude with evil; that causes us to stand tall and draw from a perfect strength; that can cause us to push through any obstacle that may stand in our way.
Do we realize that when we are the weakest; that this becomes the greatest opportunity to gain strength? I think that many times, we are too busy focusing on the strength that was at one time exchanged for weakness…and even as to how this all happened; that we don't stop to see that weakness is what can lead us to a greater strength, than what we even had before. 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." Just think…we can rejoice in weakness; because we know that God's strength can be made perfect within us, during these times of weakness. Don't we realize that weakness is actually a gift that can lead us to something greater…something that probably wouldn't have come our way, if it wouldn't have been for these times of weakness? May I encourage you today, to never look down on the weakness that you may be experiencing…for focusing on weakness in this way, will only take you further down with that form of weakness, while at the same time…pushing out the strength that God longs to give you through these weakened moments you're facing.
As we close our time together today, I would like to share another Bible verse with you, which is found in Isaiah 40:29, and we read… "He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength." Just because we are facing some hard and difficult times right now…times that seem to take a toll on us; that doesn't mean that we have to allow these moments to defeat us. Remember…there is a God who can take hold of our weakness and exchange it for a strength that can keep us above anything that may attempt to take us down…and the best time ever to gain that perfect strength that comes from above, is during times of weakness. Never allow your weakened spirit to convince you that you will never rise again; but rather, turn to the One who can reach out to you and exchange your weakness for His perfect strength.
Have a very blessed day…and ALWAYS remember to NEVER give into weakness; but rather, allow God's perfect strength to take hold of you and lift you above the moments of weakness!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
