Some days, I feel great! And I feel like I can take on the world! But there are other days, when the burdens of this life weigh heavy on me. The strength I once had, seemed to have vanquished, and I am weak. It is during these times I want to shout,
“Lord, where are you?” Or,
“Father, I need you now!!”
We all have these days. We are not promised a stress & trial-free world. For tribulations will infest our lives as long as we live. – John 16:33
But we don’t need to run from our weaknesses, for it is through our weakness Christ’s strength is made perfect!
2 Corinthians chapter 12 teaches us- we do not glory in our own strength and abilities. Lest we become proud or puffed-up. Rather, we glory in the truth — “God’s grace is sufficient for me, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” – 2 Cor. 12:9
So we can declare today, It is in Christ I’m strong! – Phil 4:13 It is through His power that this light I possess can shine, even in the darkest places of earth!
As long as we live in the source, we will shine!
