You know brothers and sisters, we are partakers of the pressures, problems, situations and circumstances of everyday life. Jesus warned us that our spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. You see our true strength does not come from our own abilities anything worldly. Our true strength to bear up against the everyday pressures of life comes from having a truly exciting relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who left His Word and Holy Spirit behind to comfort and guide us.
Some people believe they can save themselves by their own strength. Ephesians 2:8-9 attest to the fact that we can’t save ourselves and that we are saved by the grace of God and grace is a gift. Some believe in the mind over matter concept…if you just put your mind to it you can do anything. These are the ones who are sadly mistaken and greatly deceived by the enemy. Brothers and sisters, the real power that’s inside of a true Christian, a Christ follower is unleashed only when we admit that we are totally unable to help ourselves. When we admit that we need God, we begin to unleash the powers within. Listen, we couldn’t get out of our beds and walk to our car, drive to our jobs and work if we did not have all our limbs, a brain and our senses intact. We couldn’t see how to do our jobs if we did not have eye sight, we couldn’t communicate without a tongue.
Everything we have and use to work or play God gave it to us. Give Him praise and Glory because according to Psalm 139:14 we are fearfully and wonderfully made, no matter what someone else might see or think of us. Let us come into agreement with Psalm 139:14 and declare, “I praise you (Lord) because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” You see…when we stick out our chest and try to be a superhuman without that supernatural touch from God…guess what, we get broke up, and broken down to the point of lost identity and great confusion. Let us all look to our Father and receive the strength he offers so we can achieve over and beyond anything we ever thought possible.
