All about my love for the Lord

I am weak, He is strong…

on January 31, 2012

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” 2Timothy1:7

We serve a God who wants us to be full of strength. He has promised His strength is sufficient and perfect in our weakness. Why then do I succumb to the temptation of timidity? Why do I struggle with being strong? If the Lord has promised me a spirit of power and love and self-discipline, why then do I fall back on my own weakness? I am unable to be strong on my own without God. But, there is HOPE in Him. As long as I am in Him, living for Him, loving Him and submitting to Him, I am strong. With Him my weakness is abolished. I receive this spirit of power, for power is in the WORD. When I am failing and floundering, it is right and proper to rely on HIS WORD! I must remember always that His desire for my life is not to be timid, but powerful in HIM!

Dear Lord,
I praise You for Your strength. I give you all the glory when I am able to be strong…for my strength comes from You. You are all powerful and MIGHTY!

Lord, please forgive me when I stray. Please forgive me when I rely on my own strength. My strength is fallible, and misleading, it is not of YOU. Forgive me O! Lord when I am timid, it is clear in those moments that I am trusting my own weakness rather than Your strength. It is through Your Word that I glean my strength…help me Lord to rest in Your peace and strength.

Thank you Lord that each day Your mercies are new. Thank you that I can rely on You always…always.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
