s t r o n g .
seems like such a simple word, doesn't it?
easily understood, no complexity to it, no hidden meanings.
so why aren't we living it?
philippians 4:13 says, "i can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."
Christ gives us the strength we need to accomplish the things He has for us, yet so often we doubt.
we let fear make us weak.
we let satan convince us that in spite of what the Word says, Christ has not given us enough strength to do what He wants and so we let our faith waver and we sink just like peter on the stormy sea.
now don't get me wrong - i'm not being some sort of feministic women-can-do-anything-because-they're-way-stronger-than-men advocate or something.
what i am saying is that our God gives us the strength we need just when we need it.
strength for today.
no point in giving us strength for tomorrow until tomorrow becomes today, now is there? ;)
so, today, let's choose to live in His strength, not our own, and see what we can accomplish for His Kingdom and especially His glory!
today, let's choose to be s t r o n g in the Lord.
