Have you ever been in a place when you needed strength? Who do you look too? How do you receive this strength that you are needing? Do you know that in this life we can’t do it on our own, we need help, we need His strength.
“So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited…”
Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me…”
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:7-9
“Living this life can only be lived through His strength”
His strength is limitless. When we are at our weakest that is when His strength becomes the greatest! But are we seeking for His strength? Are we asking for His strength when feel as if though you can’t take another step?
Fact: Strength is grown and developed and we can’t grow or develop without seeking Him.
Q: Where can we find this strength? How do we receive strength?
There is strength for those who hope
“ My soul, wait silently for God alone,
For my expectation is from Him.”
The true source for our strength only comes from the hope we have in Him.
There is strength for those who seek
- “Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” – Psalm 105:3-4
- When we begin to praise in our weakness, when we begin to look up, we begin to have hope and joy, joy is the strength of the Lord.
- “Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face continually.” – 1 Chronicles 16:11
- There is strength for those who wait
“But they who wait (hope) for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.”
