When You Are Weak, He Is Strong

Hi friend, I know we are all easily aware of our weaknesses and failures. We are constantly reminded of them by others, ourselves, or even by the season and struggles that we are facing right now. Our weaknesses are not the big danger that we should be fearing, it’s the fear of your delusions of strength. It’s not us that is strong, it is God that it is strong. It is because of Him that we are where we are today. When you’re telling yourself that it is you that is strong, you are quickly unexcited about God’s rescuing, transforming, and empowering grace.

You Can’t Help Yourself

We can read all the self help books, listen to the feel good sermons where the focus is ourselves and they’re trying comfort us, but you cannot help yourself. Those preachers, podcasts, and books aren’t helping you, they’re hurting you. They’re stunting your growth because God doesn’t want us to be comfortable in our sin and ungodly ways.

We lose sight on truth and begin to love how we felt after their motivational messages that encourages our power that we could “claim” in Christ. We grow entitled to...
