The Weak have Power in God

 "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me”. -II Cor. 12:9

What weaknesses are you dealing with?

A weak marriage that desperately needs a new touch?

A weak body that will not cooperate to your brains commands?

A weak mind that needs to think clearly to make important life changing decisions?

Weak muscles that will not hold up to the weariness and tiredness of the day?

Weak emotions that need to be healed from grief, sorrow, heartache and trauma?

Paul, the author of the quote above, boasts in his weaknesses because he knows

That when he is weak the power of Jesus Christ rests on him and strengthens him.

It is true! When we believe in Jesus, then all our weaknesses we can boast about

because we can rest assured that the power of Christ rests on us. 

Power to overcome,

Power to endure…with joy

Power to rejoice in the midst of it

Power with strength to get through it

Power to boast in our weakness

In the same like manner this is what happened to Jesus.

 “For He was crucified in weakness, but lives by the power of God. For we also are weak in him,
but in dealing with you we will live with him by the power of God”. II Cor. 13:4

In our weakness His strength is made perfect.
When we yield to the Lord for our direction, our focus, our life and as our Lord we will see that it is His power, not our own, that gets us through the struggles and trials
here on planet earth.

Crucify your flesh in exchange for the power of God!

Would you embrace all your weaknesses by yielding to God’s power?
Submit to Him and his plan

Then bow your knee in humility acknowledging Him as Lord.

See the wonderful grace given, and

Rejoice greatly with a loud voice declaring that Jesus truly is the King of kings and Lord of lords

and because you have rested in His power,

You will be ok in your circumstances and situations because your trust is in Him.



    The Sounding of the Trumpet

    In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.
    I Corinthians 15:52-53
    When Apostle Paul speaks to the people in Corinth, he is speaking of a great mystery that many longed to know about then and to know now. We will all be affected by this event in one way or another. Paul is speaking of a heavenly transporting of all those who believe in Christ. These believers that are living here on earth are anxiously waiting and longing for their heavenly home. Paul speaks of a glorious time of afterlife and a forever eternity in utter bliss with our Savior and King Jesus.

    The angels will blow a trumpet awakening all who hear and before you can blink your eye; those who believe in Christ will fell a floating up from the ground, feet dangling in the air and a drawing upward to heaven being physically transformed physically to live in eternity.

    What will happen to you when you hear that trumpet? Jesus Christ is coming! He is coming! On any day, at any moment, "in the twinkling of an eye . . . at an hour when you do not expect him . . . he who is coming will come and will not delay" (1 Cor. 15:52; Luke 12:40; Heb. 10:37).

    Will you hear? This is your hope! Come to the Father!

    Milk Gone Bad

    Recently I visited my dear sweet mother in law. We have the best of times together and next to my own parents and husband, she is my number one encourager.

    When I was looking in the frig to make something to eat, I noticed a quart of milk that I have never seen before. No idea how long it has been there but by the looks of it I know it had been there for a long long while. It looked like some mysterious foreign plastic object from outer space tucked away between the other containers in the door of the refrigerator. I am sure the smell was just as bad but I was not going to open it to find out. This wasn’t just some sour milk that was a couple of days past the expiration date, oh no, this plastic container was a pretty hideous sight. This quart of milk had gotten soooo bad, there was a visibly clear line between the chucky, off white…even yellow curds that settled on the bottom and the clear murky liquid that had risen to the top.

    The big question I had for myself is…how in the world did I miss it? I am pretty diligent about  throwing out old food especially when I go grocery shopping and want to restock with fresh food. So how is it that I missed this? 

    Let’s face it, sometime throughout this life, we are going to miss something.

    So what have you missed from your life, something so hideous and poisonous with toxins that you never knew was there? What things are lurking in the metaphorical refrigerator of your soul?

    Could it be bitterness? Long term anger, frustration and unforgiveness at a wrong done to you?

    Could it be pride? Never submitting your heart to the great “I AM” who is God, but instead depending solely upon yourself?

    Perhaps it is a lack of love, injustice, prejudice, withholding grace and mercy to others.

    God never intended us to be poisonous. Whatever things are lurking in your metaphorical refrigerator of your soul, take to God and pray for His cleansing. He will throw out
    the items that make us poisonous and replace those with fresh fruitful items that will prosper even to His glory.

    Open the manual of the Bible and follow the direction for daily life. It will guide you on the proper ways to clean out the refrigerator of your soul by confessing sins and allow God to clean you and help you remain clean.  Seek Him and you will find a cleanness for your soul.
