What He Says about You

Friday, July 26, 2013

"That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
(2 Corinthians 12:10, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

A man in scripture by the name of Gideon was called by God to lead the people of Israel against an opposing army. But, Gideon didn’t think he was capable.

One day, an angel of the Lord appeared to him and said, “Hello Gideon, you mighty man of fearless courage.” I can imagine Gideon was looking around thinking, “Who is He talking to? I am not a mighty man of fearless courage.” Gideon was afraid, intimidated, insecure; just the opposite. But notice, God didn’t call him what he was. God called him what he could become.

Today, know that God sees your potential. He knows what you’re capable of. You may feel weak, but God calls you strong. You may be intimidated, but God calls you confident. You may feel less than, but God calls you well able. Get in agreement with God and start believing what He says about you!
Father, today I receive Your Words of life, strength and encouragement. I choose to see myself the way You see me. I choose to walk in the way that You have prepared for me. Thank You for loving me and filling me with Your joy and peace in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen

    Your sharing reminds me of this sacred scripture too:

    "And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them." (Ether 12:27). emoticon
    Thanks for sharing so I could share with you. emoticon
