If you neglect your weaknesses, they’ll eventually overshadow your strengths. Your weakness may develop into a downfall. The willingness to accept your shortcomings shows that self-improvement is a vital strength. Learning to embrace God’s strength in our weakness is not something that happens overnight. We learn through tears, heartache, loneliness, anxiety, and fear. We are allowing God to perfect His strength through our weakness while on our journey it teaches us a valuable lesson. When we draw close to God and lean into His grace and love, we discover our Creator (2 Corinthians 12:9). Don’t believe you are weak only when you suffer defeat and sin. We, as believers, need to be aware of our weaknesses and cry out to God before we become weak. When we know our weaknesses, we become humble and receive grace. Then we can become strong in God, for His strength is perfect in our weakness, turn from the things that caused us to become weak, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with all those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (2 Timothy2:22).
One thought on ““Embrace your weaknesses.””
WHEEEEE…..WEEEEEEE!!!! MY GOD!! MY GOD!
Thank you for your wisdom, knowedge, and understanding. Forgive me for my sins, thought, fought, sought, deed, known, unknown, omission and comission. I am so GRATEFUL that you are pouring your word in me and helping me to know the word for myself. When I know the word for myself, my spirit will bare witness to it. For example , Sis Nettie, is a MIGHTY WOMAN of GOD. In my opinion, there
may be other’s who are preaching your word in it’s entirety. However; I’m mentioning her name because, I have known her for over 30 years and I can say that she is a woman chosen by you to feed your people. She not only talks the talk, but, she walks the walk as well!!. A TRUE WOMAN of GOD who has been Chosen and Called by you to do your will. She will only impart the word that you give her to minister to your children, it maybe a word of knowledge, increased faith, the gift of healing, the gift of miracles, prophecy, the discerning of spirits , kind of tongues, interpretation of tongues. You have blessed her with ALL 9 of your gifts . As I reflect back to my past, when I was out in there running around needlessly in the wilderness from church to church for so many years This was because I was not getting the TRUE word being preached from the pullpit ,that I needed in it’s entirety. In my opinion, most of the word that was being preached had the Pastor’s spin on it. I got tired of going in one way and coming out the same way I came in!! “OUCH”!! Yes Lord, I am so GRATEFUL that you are in life. My relationship with you get’s stronger everyday. I’m happy that you send the word to me in lamen’s terms. Often times, I am convicted daily by the blog. I would rather be convicted by you, because conviction brings about a change in my life. Help me to lean on your stregnth when I am weak, continue to show me my weaknesses, and to cry out to you, cast my cares upon you no matter the circumstances. You did not create me to go through my trials and tribulations on my own during this Journey, you are creating a better version of myself. You are transforming me into the woman of God that you have called me to be. Has this transformation been easy? Absolutely not, I have to remember when I start feeling sorry for myself, and complaining saying why me Lord? His response to me is, why not you? The trials and tribulations are making me stronger. How can i give a testimony from something I have not experienced first hand. When you give a testimony as a believer, people will be able to relate to you, and know that, If she made it through her trials and tribulations, .so can I. It will inspire other’s to hang in there and not give up!! This encourages them to know that they can and will make it through, with God’s stregnth. The Lord himself goes befor you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you: (Deuteronmy 31: 8 ). No matter what the circumstances look like in the natural realm, I have to have faith to know that he has a plan for my life. When I surrender and follow his road map, it would make my life better, If I try and figure out how to solve the trials and tribulations that arise , my life will be less stressful.!!! I know that stress can causes anxiety, depression, heartache, lonliness, tears, and fears. The enemy wants to keep me in Bondage. If I put my your TRUST in you, you will lead and guide me through ALL aspects in my life. I have to remember to TRUST THE PROCESS!! GOD’s GOT ME!!🙏🏻😇🙌🏾👏🏾🎉🎊👏🏾🙌🏾🙂
