Our Circumstances are NOT our truth God is our Strength

 

 

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)

 

 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 about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.                      (2 Corinthians 12:9)

 

When I am feeling my weakest is when God can show me how strong He truly is.  It is during these trials that we feel so out of control.  Most of us have a strange idea that we can somehow control our circumstances and by that we can be the masters of our own lives.  It is only in our weakest moments that we may finally surrender to the power of God whom we know is more powerful than those moments.

 

We can make decisions which will only cause our problems to worsen, but God has a greater perspective than we do and He knows what is truly best for us.  We must trust that He will never leave us or forget the messes we have made for ourselves.  We have limited God to the position of man.  If God were a mere man we would be hopeless, however God is NOT a man and He can do far more than we dare ask or think.

 

Our eyes have been trained by the world’s system that what we see is what is true.  However God does not look at our situations with human eyes but He is always eager to show His strength on our behalf. 

 

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)

 

Our problems always seem bigger to us than they really are because we are looking through the eyes of fear and doubt.  When we come to God He looks at what He a planned from the beginning.  He is always ready to help us when we are walking with Him, but how can He help us when we are moving away from Him?

 

When we run from God it is our fear that moves us, but when we are trusting in Him it is His strength that is in operation.

 

 

Prayer for the day:  God I thank you that you are always good and you are always searching for those who will trust you with all their hearts to bless and prosper.  We know your power is greater than our weaknesses.  Give us strength to turn our life and will into your strong arms.  Amen
