Strength in Weakness!

lift up my eyes

My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.” ~ Psalm 121:2

It’s easy to get lost in the craziness of this world. We are so small, tiny pieces of a greater design. But even at our lowest, we are God’s beautiful creations, destined for glory and victory in His name. Romans 8:37 says, “…in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” The Bible talks about the joy we have in Christ, but what about the challenges we have to face? How, exactly, can we find strength in weakness?

First, we have to know our enemy. Our enemy is sin, temptation, and most of all, death. But didn’t Jesus conquer the grave? He defeated death once and for all when he rose again on that third day. He died so that we may die to our sinful nature, and He rose again so that we may rise with Him. Consider Romans 8:31: “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” By ourselves, we are slaves to sin, and we are weak. But in Christ, we are stronger, greater than any force that comes against us.

We also have to know our ally. The God of the Universe is on our side, and He is not willing that anyone should perish, but that all should come to Him and live. The One who placed the stars in the sky is the same One who stands on the front lines of every battle you will ever face. He has the power to create, and He has the power to destroy. It’s not in our own strength that we can trust, but in Christ alone our hope is found. When we have unwavering faith in the maker of heaven and earth, we also trust Him to lead us personally out of the darkness and into the light.

And so no matter what we go through, God can and will help us through- if we let Him. As Deuteronomy 31:6 says, “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” We don’t belong to ourselves anymore and thankfully so. Left to our own devices, we only crash and burn. But when Christ lives in us, we can do all things. Where does our help come from? Our help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
