Our Weakness, His Strength!

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalm 27:14) 

Let's look at that term wait. It is from the Hebrew verb kah-wah meaning "to twist, stretch." The noun form means "line, cord, thread." A vivid picture emerges here. It is a verb describing the making of a strong, powerful rope or cord by twisting and weaving ourselves so tightly around the Lord that our weaknesses and frail characteristics are replaced by His power and unparalleled strength. It describes very literally the truth of what has been termed the "exchanged life." As we wait on God, our weakness is exchanged for His strength. 

Strength and courage are developed during a trial, not after it is over. 

Living Beyond the Daily Grind 

There's no doubt about it my friends. We are indeed weak creatures. Does that imply that we are not capable of being strong? No. That's not what I mean. What I do mean is that we are weak in light of God's strength. 

We are indeed capable of defending ourselves when it is necessary. God has provided us the capacity to be able to provide strength to another when faced with difficult times or when tragedy strikes. I will admit this much. There are moments when we depend upon human strength far more frequently than exclusively depend upon God's strength and might. 

As human beings, we are severely limited and flawed in so many different ways. The scope of our strength is limited at best. The honest reality is that God is more than willing to operate His strength in our weakness. What it all boils down to is that we let go of any human pride and ego and humble ourselves before God Himself acknowledging His strong hand in the process. God's strength will remove any obstacles that will confront us and His strength will carry us through the most difficult circumstances we can ever go through. 

Thank you so much for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
