Meditate with Power!
Weakness to Strength!
2 Corinthians 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Meditate on God’s Word! The Christian has resources available to them to help them during the tough times of life. It is when we are honest and humble before God that God can step in to help us in our time of need. Some of the greatest stories in the Bible are about men and women who humbled themselves before God. Because your heart was tender, and you humbled yourself before God when you heard His words against this place and against its inhabitants, and you humbled yourself before Me, and you tore your clothes and wept before Me, I also have heard you,” says the Lord. 2 Chronicles 34:27
King Josiah went to God on behalf of the entire nation to intercede for the people. This honesty before God lead to reform in the entire nation. Then the king stood in his place and made a covenant before the Lord, to follow the Lord, and to keep His commandments and His testimonies and His statutes with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of the covenant that were written in this book. 2 Chronicles 34:31
The nation admitted their sin, changed their ways and came back to God. God is always there for us in our time of need. It is often in our weakest moments where we find the strength we need when we come before the Lord with an open and broken heart. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. I Peter 5:6-7 God’s strength is found in our weakness when we come to Jesus. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
