He Gives Strength

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:29 New International Version

I used to believe that if I tried hard enough I would conquer my weaknesses. Sometimes I would succeed for a while but then fall even harder than when the attempt was originally made.

 

It took me decades and a desperate agonizing cry for help and surrender to the Lord from the chains of my weaknesses that was making life a living hell and dragging me down into a permanent one.

 

At the second of complete and total surrender He smashed those chains and freed me.

That does not mean temptation does not rear its ugly head in suttle ways. At those moments I request His divine help. Sometimes He directly intervenes and sometimes He directs me to the tools necessary to defeat the wicked one.

This is an important lesson to learn not only for those suffering from destructive addiction but also for those afflicted with ruinous dispositions like gossiping or refusing to forgive or refusing to apologize or for being self centered and greedy.

“Deny your weakness, and you will never realize God’s strength in you.” Joni Eareckson Tada

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my rescuer) for smashing the devastating weaknesses in my life and freeing me to be a loving child of Yours. I exalt You in the name of He who freed the man trapped by legions of demons Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
