In our lives, we will all have moments that are not our best. In those moments we often feel weak, inadequate, silly, or even doomed. Yet, God is with thus, even in those moments, providing His strength, love, encouragement and wisdom!
There are times when we are low and is during these times that God encourages us to seek his providence. God is strengthened in our weakness. Once we are able to acknowledge this, we tap into the sufficient grace that only He can give to us.
2 Corinthians 12: 9 New Living Translation
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.
In trying times, let us recognize that our strength comes from God. We often want to take on everything, showing that we can handle it. Nevertheless, there are things that are out of our controls. These trials that prove that also prove who is in control! Because of Jesus, we have an inclusive, welcoming relationship with God. That relationship includes the benefits of salvation, overwhelming love, and incomparable mercy and strength to get through daily.
Let us find strength in the God who keeps us daily, protecting us from dangers, seen and unseen.
Stretch towards recognizing everything needed goes through Him (Strength).
Meditate on This: Nehemiah 8:10 (NIV)
10 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
