Hello everyone...and a "Happy Friday" to you all! Well...we've reached the end of another week and we've survived...Praise God! I truly hope and pray that your day will be blessed by God above and that you will come to see that God can truly bring you through anything; that Satan may attempt to use against you...Amen!
Have you ever experienced a day, when you just didn't know if you could make it through everything you needed to do...but still you did? Well...that's because of God's perfect strength!
You know...some days can be a challenge for me, as I'm sure that you feel the same. Lately, I have been going to sleep with pain and waking up with pain...and I'll tell you...sometimes, I just don't want to put these feet on the floor in the morning...or really any other time of the day; but when I am determined to go beyond the pain and trust God to hold me up...He ALWAYS does...for it's a strength of a mighty God that can go way beyond any form of weakness.
How many times, do we find ourselves easily giving into the weaknesses we face...all because we are just too impatient to wait for God's help? Seems like we determine what will and won't happen...just by what we are feeling at the time. Isn't it amazing how the symptoms of a problem can convince us that we can't continue on? I think what we really need to do; is look beyond the problem and seek a God, who can work through these moments of weakness.
One thing God has taught me, since we began this ministry together...17 years ago; is how He can truly take hold of our weaknesses and exchange them, for a strength that can help us to keep pressing on; but if we are too caught up in the weakness...then an exchange may not happen...which to me, keeps us suffering...only this time, in a needless way.
As we walk through the day...we can feel tired because we know it's the end of the week. Maybe we are also focusing on how difficult everyday of the week has been. First of all...that's not a good thing to do; because Satan can truly use these thoughts, to convince us that we can no longer press on, which causes us to lose out on a perfect strength; that can take us way beyond these moments.
As we close our time together this morning...I pray that we won't easily give into our weaknesses; but rather, we will turn to a God, who can exchange these moments of weakness, for a perfect strength; that can cause us to stand in amazement, as to all we can accomplish...simply by leaning on this strong God!
Have a great Friday...take care and I will hope to be with you again this evening!
Many...many blessings on your day!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
