It is not human strength or power that accomplishes His will

As human beings we sometimes feel invincible, we take for granted the abilities, talents, power, strength, personalities, physical characteristics and everything that we have. We feel as though, we acquired these things ourselves.

We think we’re the boss of us and of this universe and we conveniently overlook the power of God that works through us…

We must always remember, that all that we are and all that we have, is not a product of our own doing, but a gift from an almighty God, who through his spirit gives us the power to accomplish his will…

Zechariah 4:6 (NIV)

So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power,but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.

You don’t know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice - Bob Marley

This week’s inspiration comes from a story I read in one of my daily devotionals…in the story a little girl tells her father she thinks she will never be strong enough for Jesus, her father assured her when the time comes, God will provide her with sufficient strength. Sure enough when she grew up she mustered the strength to help Jews escape Nazis during the Second World war…

strength to overcome

 

 

God's strength

 

I hope these words encourage you today, remember, you have a mighty God who loves you dearly…he will surely provide you with the strength you need to overcome whatever giants you face in life,

2 Corinthians 12:9 (ESV)

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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Philippians 2:13 (AMP)

13 For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure.

Love Always,

XOXO
