"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." Isaiah 41:10
Are you fearful this morning? Fearful of the unknown? Of the outcome of the situation you are going through? Are you weak? Are you growing tired and weary from the battle you have been in? Are you feeling like you won't make it? Are you ready to "throw in the towel"? Do you feel like you are being swallowed up by the pain and grief of events that have happened in your life? Then read the verse above again.
You do not have to be fearful, the Lord is with you- you aren't alone. He is your strength- you can make it. His strength is made perfect in your weakness. He will give you strength for the battle and strength for the journey. He will give you His strength. Whatever you are struggling with, He will help you not only make it through it, but overcome it. If you feel like giving up He will hold you up so that you can continue on.
The word "enable" means: To give (someone or something) the authority or means to do something; make possible; empower; allow; permit. We hear that word used a lot in our society, but usually in a negative way. It is mostly used of a person who "enables" another to continue in some addition or habit they should be letting go of.
But there is a positive side of the meaning of an enabler. The Lord enables us, not to do what is bad or wrong, but He enables us to stand and withstand during the times we have been talking about. He enables us to stand against fear, against despair, in spite of our weakness, regardless of what is coming against us. He empowers us to be victorious over the enemy and besetting sins. He enables us to continue to run the race that is set before us.
Whatever you may be going through today, remember that the Lord is your enabler--- enabling you to go through it, enabling you to stand and be victorious in the midst of it and He does it through His presence and power.
Have a great day. The Lord is our Enabler. He enables us to make it through any situation of life we are going through.
