perspective of strength

For we rejoice when we ourselves are weak but you are strong; this we also pray for, that you be made complete.

Where I am weak, He is strong.  Take a look at your life.  What struggles have you been through?  What turns have you been led to take?  What barriers have you come up against?

The power of Scripture amazes me.  It is not just words, but the Bible holds life and so much for us.  It reveals to us God and the truth about God.

God is powerful.  When our strength is drawn from something stronger than us, then we have loads of more power!  We have strength to get through the battles. 

1 Corinthians 1:23-24 NASB
but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, 24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

When His strength is ours, life is much different.  The darkness we encounter in the world will be much different.  That is why we must preach Christ.  Nothing will or can replace Jesus.  It is important that we have excellent perspective about our situation and about our Savior.  Everything changes with the right perspective.

In spite of everything we win.  That is the promise from God that we have to claim.  Our strength doesn’t last very long.  His strength is endless.  Again, we win.

Romans 8:37  NLT
No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

1 Corinthians 15:57  NLT
But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
