– Philippians 4:13
What a beautiful truth.
At times, I am filled with doubt and fear. “Will I be able to finish what I started? How will I go about doing it? I feel so tired, I don’t feel like doing anything. I have no energy today. I don’t feel like working out because I’m so exhausted. I need a break from everything and everyone.” Etc.
I’ve realized there is nothing I can do without His help, without His power, without His strength. From the big projects for work, to spending time preaching to street kids, to cooking dinner when I’m too tired, to making myself go to the gym even on days I’d rather be lounging on the sofa eating my feelings away. He is there through it all. He makes all things possible.
This verse reminds me that although I am weak, He who lives in me is strong. Although I am tired, His spirit is able to give me all the energy I need to go about my day. Whom shall I fear then?
Which brings me to this beautiful reminder:
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10
So today, as you go about your day, remind yourself that you can do all things through Him who strengthens you. He will never leave nor forsake you, His Grace is with you wherever you go. He delights in your weaknesses, for His power is made perfect in our weakness. In fact, our weaknesses are a great reminder to lean on Him in everything that we do, to put Him first and to seek His guidance. How amazing 🙂
“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9
We know that we are sinners in need of Your Grace. We understand that we are too weak to carry out all of our daily tasks. We trust in Your hand to guide us through it all, for we know that Your power is made perfect in our weaknesses. Thank You for giving us the strength to do things that may seem impossible. We know that what is impossible with men, is possible with and through You, loving Father. Thank You for being our strength when we want to give up, for being our Hope during times of trial, for loving us no matter what. Today we declare that whatever comes our way, will be nothing compared to Your power and strength within us. Thank You for the beautiful reminder that You, Lord, are in control, and that You, Lord, hold our lives in Your hands. In Jesus’ beautiful name we pray, Amen.
Much love your way.
