2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness,” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Are you feeling weak, or worn, or maybe heartbroken, or totally unqualified today? Are you not really sure how you are going to make it? God has promised to fill that need, mend that broken heart and He will give you the wisdom and strength you need to do what you are called to do.
Here’s the only catch with all of this though; you have to trust Him and you have to allow His grace to be sufficient. I don’t know about you but I know there are too many times that I look around and I know God has poured out His grace for me to handle the situation and yet I feel an overwhelming need to be heard and get a backup of “people” to hold me up instead of just resting in Him. I’m not saying we shouldn’t talk to people about what we are going through but they shouldn’t be our source of strength. I have even had times when God removed my “backup” so I would fully lean on Him for His wisdom and strength! There’s no strength like the strength we get when we fully rely on God to sustain us.
God loves you and He wants you to lean on Him. He wants to see you make it to the other side of what you are facing and He wants to see you do it right. No one else can be there for you the way only He can, no one else can give you the strength you need. He is your knight in shining armor and He will provide. Rest in Him, know He cares and He has your back. Ladies, there is no love on earth that is like the love of God and no one can fill your needs like He can. If you trust Him to fill your emotional needs then anyone else that comes along to add to that will just be icing on the cake, (hmmm why do we say that, most people think the icing is the best part, that doesn’t fit here) mmmm how about the peanut butter on the Chocolate.
Anyhow, look to Him today for all you need, don’t run to someone else hoping they can fill that void, God’s grace is sufficient. Think about who you are in Christ and walk in the confidence of all that He created you to be! He made you special girl so walk in that. Thrive in His strength today!
