There are those days when you know that, if God doesn’t help, you don’t have enough strength within yourself to keep going.
That enormous weight of responsibility, mixed with a barrage of resistance, from circumstances and people.
Fear, anxiety, terror.
Sometimes, it even makes you cry. And you feel like you might just disintegrate into thin air.
Some people say that Christians are weak because they need a god to carry them.
That’s ok, because when I am weak…
He is always strong.
Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:8-9a NLT)
Have you cried in prayer, “I need help. I can’t do this anymore. God, where are You, don’t You care about me?”
Have you begged Him to take IT away, but IT is still there, intimidating you down to your knees?
Know this: God’s power works best when you MOST recognize your need for Him.
So, stop whatever you are doing right now.
Step away from the chaos.
Change your prayers.
Ask for grace.
So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9a-10 NLT)
I hear the Lord’s voice calling to you this morning…
“Come away with Me,” He says. “And I will give you new strength for today.”
