for when I am weak [in human strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful in divine strength) (2 Corinthians 12:10, AMP)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
No matter what weakness you think you may have, no matter what inadequacies or setbacks youve encountered, God wants to give you His divine strength. He wants to make up the difference and put you further ahead than you ever thought possible.
One time in the Old Testament, God simply multiplied the sound of four mens footsteps and caused them to sound like a mighty army. When their enemies heard them, they took off running. There were thousands of enemy troops running for their lives, scared to death, thinking they were being attacked by a massive army when in fact, it was just four people! What happened? God made up the difference.
Friend, God can make you seem bigger than you really are. He can make you look more powerful. He knows how to multiply your influence, your strength, your talent and your income. Dont just look at what you have in your hand; look at what Almighty God can do with it! You dont have to figure it all out. All you have to do is put your trust in Him and let Him work because when you do, He will lead you and guide you into victory all the days of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, today I commit every area of my life to You. I trust that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. Use me for Your glory as I put my faith and hope in You in Jesus name. Amen.
