Stronger Than Human Strength (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 115)
1 Corinthians 1:25 (NLT)
…God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength.
In life, there will always be hangups and holdups. We will face circumstances that aim to keep us separated from reaching our goals or prevent us from making progress. Mistakes and failure are common experiences for all mankind. We will find ourselves in situations that are difficult and out of our control to handle. These encounters in life are when our human weaknesses hit us as reality.
Many times, these situations can be overwhelming. They grab us at the core of who we are and make us feel helpless. We may feel as though there is no way to make it through and even as if we are being swallowed up in a huge hole. If we look at these times as never-ending, we will find ourselves in them more frequently and longer than we want to be. But if we look at difficult times in perspective, we find that God is using this for our good.
God promises us that in our weakness, He will be our strength. We only need to open our life and heart up to Him. Life will quickly teach us sometimes we are not as strong as we may think. When we rely on God, He gives us hope and power to endure and travel through any situation. Instead of looking to ourselves or to someone else to be our lifeline, we just need to look to Him. God can do so much more than we ever thought possible if we just give it all to Him and let Him do it.
Whatever situation you are facing right now, know that God is bigger than that. He is on your side. He will not allow anything to come your way that is not for your good. Every difficulty is disguised as a lesson or a blessing. God wants us to learn to trust Him. When we choose to trust Him, He releases us to experience His goodness and His grace in amazing and powerful ways. When we feel weak, God is strong. When we feel strong, God is yet stronger.
“When a man has no strength, if he leans on God, he becomes powerful.”
— D.L. Moody
