Strength in God
Have you ever asked God “Why Me?”
Have you ever thought, “I don’t have a clue how to get out of this situation.”
Or just summed it up, “God you have to perform a miracle to make _______ happen.”
Well I have been there, done that. I’m at the place now of waiting and needing endurance while sitting in this waiting room.
The word says, For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13 NLT) This lets us know that everything is possible and not to draw on ourselves to get through. I like to visualize God as that extra battery pack. He has the full charge to get us through. God wants to be the battery pack so that we remember to worship and share his glory. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. (Psalms 23:3 NLT)
There are traits you want to have to tap into this source: trust, humbleness, and a seeking heart. God wants us to depend on Him and he will provide for us. We just have to be willing to come.
Seek–Search for the Lord and for his strength; continually seek him. (1 Chronicles 16:11 NLT)
Humble–He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. (Isaiah 40:29 NLT)
Trust–But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 NLT)
Once we have accomplished these traits and hand out situations over to God we gain a sense of peace and calmness—-just by trusting and loving The Lord.
I love you, Lord; you are my strength. (Psalms 18:1 NLT)38.939834 -77.027497Advertisements
