Disappointment, Frustration & Stress
Our days are filled with opportunities to murmur and complain over pain, fatigue, disappointment, frustration, and stress. I've got to be honest with you, I fall into the trap more often than I care to admit. As I lay before God in repentance, He reveals to me my weaknesses and once again calls me up higher.
Amid my current situation, I'm reminded of His incredible blessings in my life. The victories won and those yet to come! His strong arm that supports me and His love that never fails. The destiny before me and souls yet to touch. I weep in His presence... with God by my side, what do I have to fear or complain about? Why He uses such weak and broken vessels is a mystery to me, yet I know He reveals HIS glory, power, and strength through those that know they stand ONLY because of HIM!
So, as you hear negative reports and fearful scenarios, remember where your help comes from. Seek the only one who has the power to deliver you and gives you a hand to hold as He walks you through the trial. He'll never leave you nor forsake you, but you'll only see His deliverance as you set your eyes upon Him, take a deep breath, and give Him your highest praise. Trust Him even in the midst of the storm! He's got you and He replaces your weakness with His strength!
Psalm 18:1-3 (KJV) I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. Hebrews 13:5 (KJV) Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (NKJV) And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me 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.
