You don’t babe to be strong enough
There’s one thing that frustrates me faster than anything else in my life. It’s believing the lie that I have to be strong enough to handle everything that comes my way. I don’t. You don’t either. I’m here to tell you that truth today so you’ll be free from the overwhelming pressure to be strong enough.
I don’t know why we ever believe that lie. If you’ve read the Bible at all, you’ll see it’s not true. You’ll see that anyone who’s ever made it through something and come out on the other side victorious gave up on their strength to do so.
It doesn’t mean they were weak. It’s doesn’t mean they weren’t resilient. It doesn’t mean they didn’t have incredible strength. It just means, they knew God. They knew that in order to see the other side of whatever they were going through, that what they had would never be enough, but what God could give them would be more than enough. Where there strength ended, where they surrendered, that supernatural strength that only God can give, began.
If you notice the strongest people of the Bible were the ones most dependent on God. Sounds crazy right? That in order to be strong enough you must admit that you aren’t? It’s wonderful! Just think about it for a second. Think about how much grace and mercy and compassion the Lord is showing us in that truth. He is giving us an opportunity to accomplish things that would never be possible in our own strength, by accepting His instead. He’s offering us the opportunity to lay our heavy load down, and pick up is light one. It doesn’t mean our heavy load goes away! It just means that he does all the heavy lifting. What an incredible deal.
Depending on the Lords strength in no way diminishes how strong of a person you are. It instead allows the Lord to shine through you in a way that displays who He created you to be.
So today whatever it is you are trying to man handle in your own strength, just stop.
Whatever it is that has you exhausted and weary, lay it down.
Whatever you’re facing today in your own strength, surrender it to the Lord, Just ask Him to begin using His strength where yours ends. Believe me, you’ll see mountains move when you do.
You don’t have to be strong enough, because Jesus is.❤️
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
Philippians 4:13 KJV
“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV
