Find Your Strength In God
It is amazing to see someone who is going through a crisis in their lives, and be able to navigate the difficult waters of life and remain confident. It is difficult to stand under the pressures of life when it seems like everything is coming at us at one time. In the midst of the pressures of life we look for those we consider our life support that are there for us and give us the necessary encouragement to help us stand, even when we feel like falling.
In those times of crises not only do we lean on our support systems around us, but also that is the time when we lean even more heavily on The Lord to see us through. Each of us are going to face our share of trials and trouble in this life, but through those times of trials and trouble, we must rely on The Lord to see us through. The Scripture reminds us that, for the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities.
For when I am weak, then I am strong. I encourage you today to remember when you are at your weakest point in your life, that is the time to not to have a pity party, but that is the time to remember when you are weak, leaning on The Lord will make you strong. When insults come your way, that is the time to remember you are a child of God who loves you just the way you are. When hardships come your way, that is the time to remember that The Lord will never leave or forsake you.
In those times of weaknesses find your strength, comfort, and joy in The Lord, because it is in Him that you will have all that you need to make it through all that you go through. No matter what it is that I may be facing, I remind myself that when I am weak, I find my strength in God.
Since I will continue to lean and depend on God through it all I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord I thank you for being my everything and my all and all, and no matter what it is that I am facing in my life I know that I find all of my strength in you. In Jesus name Amen.
