Are You A Weakling?

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. – 2 Corinthians 12:9

God’s power is made perfect in our weakness.

If this Scripture is true, and we know it is, then God’s power much be radiating with strength in my life.  I am the definition of weakness.  I have been the person who stayed stuck in her comfort zone.  I had been the person who let her anxiety disorder rule her life.  I am the person who everyone calls strong because she packed up two suitcases and moved 700 miles away from her family and friends.  Every day I wonder if I made the right decision.

God has healed me of the anxiety disorder.  I am still in the process of saying yes to the good, scary things and no to the bad, comfortable things.

I know, though, that my God is strong throughout the process of working through the weakness in me.  That is somehow comforting, don’t you think?

Ready To Change?

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.- Lamentations 3:22-23

God’s mercy, His compassions, are new every morning.  If you messed up yesterday, that isn’t the end of God’s compassion for you forever.  No, a fresh supply is ready for you in the morning.  God understands that we aren’t always model Christians.  Sometimes we tell a white lie there.  We struggle with an addiction here.  We give into temptation over there.  We are humans.  God knows that.  God forgives us, but God always want to come beside us and help us change into the people He created us to be.  God’s mercies are not be abused but used to change our lives.

Is God Slow?

The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. – 2 Peter 3:9

Many times we think that God is slow in keeping His promises to us.  I have been waiting on promises that God made me that seem to be taking forever.  I thought by now in my life that I would be married, that I would have children, that I would be successful in spreading my message to the masses.  In my opinion, God is being very slow.  These are the times when I have to remind myself that God has a plan and that He knows what He is doing.  It is the time when I have to surrender to His plan.  Any other action might delay the plan or throw it off course.

Everything Changes, Right?

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. – Hebrews 13:8

It doesn’t matter if we mess up,  how our circumstances change, how many bad things happen to us, our Jesus, our Savior, is always the same.  He hasn’t decided to change the rules on us.  He hasn’t refused to forgive us when He has given salvation to all.  No, Jesus never changes.  He is always the same.  Things may change.  We may change, but Jesus will remain the same…always and forever.
