WEAK OR STRONG

Societies perception of a weak person is entirely different, from God’s perception of someone weak. There is a difference between a weak unbeliever and a weak Christian, who is walking in righteousness; allow me to break it down. A weak person who does not know God does not have Him to cover their back, no one mighty and powerful to come to their defence; But a weak Christian, who knows God personally, knows that He is their refuge and strength, plus a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1-11). Who are you looking to for help? The government, your friends, family, the job, who all need help and a bailout package. Listen, “The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, is my strength, in who I will trust; My shield, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower”(Psalm 18:2).

A weak person in the world does not have the God of the universe behind them, because they refuse to accept God’s only begotten son Jesus Christ, they refuse to turn from their evil ways, they refuse to acknowledge that there is a God. However, a weak believer or Christian have the blessed assurance to know that if they wait on the Lord, He will renew their strength, and enable them to mount up with wings like an eagle, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31). As a Christian you better know God’s word for yourself, so you can defeat the enemy; that’s what Jesus use to defeat him (the Word/the Bible). Jesus told him like it is, “It is written.” In Luke 4:1-14, He sent the devil away, by telling him what God’s word says and mean. James 4:7, tells us to draw close to God, resist the devil and he will flee. For him to flee you better exercise the power and authority Jesus gave us, in Luke 10:19, to tread upon serpents, scorpions and all the power of the enemy.

As a weak Christian you better remember that there is no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit (Romans 8:1). You better know that weeping only endures for a night but joy comes in the morning, read it for yourself in Psalm 30:5 and Isaiah 65:19. Let the devil know, “Because we through the spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith, for in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availed anything, nor un-circumcission, but faith which worked by love (Galatians 5:5-6). Yes as a child of God, we do get to a point where we might not feel like praying or can’t pray, but remember this, The Holy Spirit which we are sealed with until the day of redemption (2 Corinthians 1:22) helps us in our infirmities; because we don’t know what we should pray for as we ought; But the Spirit Himself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered, and He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is in the mind of the Spirit; Because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God (Romans 8:26-27).

However, we must understand as Paul did in 2 Corinthians 12:9-10, where God reminded him that, “His (God’s) grace is sufficient for him, for God’s  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 persecution, in distresses, for Christ’s sake; For when I am weak, then I am strong.” Children of the most High God lets be strong in the Lord, and for those who don’t know the Lord and want to know Him so that you too can be strong, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, so that you will never be weak and defenseless again. To God, my Heavenly Father, be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me as one of His messengers to get this message out to inform, encourage and exhort you, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
