Where does strength come from?
More importantly..how do you draw strength in the middle of a situation you've never experienced before?
We all face many difficulties during our lives and we've all given up on something in our lives in a time that we should've stood strong instead, but in the end..we failed to do so.
But what about the moments when we are facing a hard time and we don't have the strength but somehow we find that strength from somewhere inside of ourselves..we find a strength that we never knew was there! Where did it suddenly come from? How did it manage to come at such a time as this..the time when we needed it the most?
The answer is..God saw you at your weakness point, He heard the cry of your heart, He knew that you needed help finding the strength and He helped you to find that strength within yourself, He helped you to cope with the pain or the defeat that you were struggling with and He lightened the burden of that for you! It's because of God that we are able to draw strength even when we don't always give him the praise for it..still He is there for us in that very hour of need! He searches out heart's and knows what we are capable of, therefore He knows when we need His strength inside of us to be able to make it out of the struggle that we are currently facing!
We are only capable of a few things on our own without any help and God just sits back and enjoys watching us use those strengths but He also watches out for the moments when we are faced with challenges that we cannot overcome according to our own strength and that's when God intervenes in our lives and in those certain situations that we need Him in the most!
I want to encourage you today by telling you to not give up, God is with you at all times and even when it seems hopeless..God is going to give you the strength that you need to get through it, just trust in Him..that He is on His way and that He is going to give you the strength to make it out of that situation successfully!
God will give you the strength..I promise you that He will get you through even the most difficult things..even tragedy and give you the strength to get through it!
Trust in Him..trust in His plan..don't lose hope and always keep the faith because that's where you will always draw your strength from!
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths."
