Are You Strong Enough?

2 Chronicles 16:9- “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.”

 

I thought the small concrete bench in the middle of our backyard would look better in the far corner, next to my favorite bush.

It really is a small bench. It even can be moved in three separate pieces.

However, as much as I struggled to lift the top off, I just couldn’t do it. I had to ask my husband for help.

Do you often find that doing things in your own strength is futile? Is it hard to take care of an elderly parent…deal with a wayward child…make your money stretch to the end of the month?

Is your own strength just not enough to bring you to victory in the daily battle?

Had you ever thought about what is really going on there? Who is trying to steal your joy…your peace?

Look closely: While Satan is roaming the earth, “seeking whom he may devour,” our wonderful God is looking for those of us who are fully committed to him so He can strengthen us.

He is ready, willing, and more than able to give us strength—to see us through—to lead us on—to help us live

the victorious Christian life.
