Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Tuesday to you all! I sure hope that your day is going well…and I pray that as we begin this time together; that we will truly come to see that hope and strength can be found during times of weakness…Amen!!
Last night, while spending some precious moments alone with God, I was thinking on how amazing it could be, if we could only stop and think on all that could come about through times of weakness. Somehow…instead of seeing where these moments of weaknesses could take us; we tend to see weakness as failure and defeat in our lives.
As I was recently looking through some Bible verses; God led me to a Bible verse in Isaiah 40:29, which reads… "He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength." While looking deeper into this Bible verse, I came to see how we truly perceive weakness. For me…there was a time in my life, when I felt as if I had plummeted to nothing, with no strength left within me…at least that is what I felt at the time; but that was only because the circumstances that I was facing, were attempting to convey a message to me that there was absolutely nothing left of me. In other words…these hard and difficult moments that I had been facing at the time, were meant to make me believe that there was no reason to go on, which was really Satan's way of convincing me that it was time to quit and give up. You see…even though I felt that there was nothing left of me at that time; I now realize that there had to have been something there for God to take hold of; otherwise my heart could have never connected with the increased and perfect strength that I was experiencing, as God pulled me from the muck and mire of these extreme moments of weakness.
Since those hard and difficult times of the past; I now know that if prayer isn't answered…in a way and time that I expect it to be; that those arms of strength will be there once more, to hold me up…in a way, in which I could never achieve on my own.
You know…I just wonder…how many times have we said to ourselves that we can't make it…and that there is nothing more to give? Could that be because we are basing those thoughts and feelings on what we may be facing at the time? In other words…is our focus on every detail of what may be weakening us; that we find it difficult to believe that there is a greater strength that can pull us out of those moments of weakness? You know…I have come to truly see how easy it can be to bow down to weakness, while falling prey to what it's attempting to convince me of; but we must remember that falling prey to such thoughts; is only going to weaken us more.
Now is the time, to put a halt to the thought that weakness is where it all ends…and begin once more. to see the good that can come out of these moments of weakness. Once we can see how the difficult times can allow a perfect strength to lift us up and out of weakness; that is when our faith and our view on God's goodness will be enlarged, which will become a reminder; that no matter what we may face in this life…God's perfect strength will ALWAYS be there, to keep us standing; for when we are weak…He is strong…Amen!!
Have a very blessed day…and NEVER allow weakness to control your life!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
