It reminds us anew that it's REALLY all about HIM, not us!

This reminds me of a Tony Evans book I just got in the mail. "God's Unlikely Path to Success: How He Uses Less-Than-Perfect People"

We should take heart, because God will always pick us up and use us, if we're willing. We don't have to become 'better' before He uses us - God equips us to do what He wants.

Consider - Rahab, the harlot; David, who caused the death of Uriah so he could have Bathsheba; and countless others. God wants to use us, He will pick us up and equip us, all without our having to do anything to become perfect, or even 'better' than we already are.

In Your Weakest Moment You’ll Experience the Benefits of Being His
by Sheri Rose Shepherd

"The righteous may fall seven times, But they will get up again."
— Proverbs 24:16

One of the greatest battles we fight every day is the one in our mind. Our flesh tells us to “Quit trying to live for God...We will never be good enough.”

That is a lie.

Too many times we allow our failures to define us. So let me take the pressure off you. No man or woman in the Bible or in history, no believer who did something great to further God’s kingdom, lived a perfect life. Each hero of the faith loved the Lord, and despite their failures, never quit. What they did do is answer His call on their lives despite their failures, difficult circumstances, and people who hurt them or discouraged them.

Our Loving Lord is for us and no matter how many times we fall, He is there to pick us back up as many times as it takes until He comes to take us Home. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that God cannot redeem what you have done. Just ask your heavenly Father to help you get up and let Him handle whoever and whatever is keeping you down—and you’ll win!

His Love Letter to You

My Beloved Child,

I want you to experience the benefits and blessings of being mine. I want you to know the power of grace that only I can give you. You won’t discover who I really am in your own strength. You can conquer and accomplish much on your own but you will never know the joy of everlasting work until you have been weak. It is in your weakest moment that my strength will become your strength and that my Holy Spirit that lives inside of you will rise up and you will know that I am with you always. If you will embrace your weaknesses and grabbed hold of all I am you will become all you desire to be. Now is the time to let me do great things in you and through you!

Love,
Your Strong and Mighty God

“My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness. So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.”
— 2 Corinthians 12:9
