My weakness vs. God's strength

Saturday, September 28, 2013

The following is from Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young; which is written as if Jesus is speaking directly to you. The scriptures are all from the NIV.

"Relax in My everlasting arms. Your weakness is an opportunity to grow strong in awareness of My Almighty Presence. When your energy fails you, do not look inward and lament the lack you find there. Look to Me and My sufficiency; rejoice in My radiant riches that are abundantly available to help you.

Go gently through this day, leaning on Me and enjoying My Presence. Thank Me for your neediness, which is building trust-bonds between us. If you look back on your journey thus far, you can see that days of extreme weakness have been some of your most precious times. Memories of these days are richly interwoven with golden strands of My intimate Presence."

Deuteronomy 33:27 "The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms, He will drive out your enemy before you, saying, 'Destroy him!' "

Psalm 27:13-14 "I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD."
