"The Promise Of Strength"

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." 2 Corinthians 12:9
There are times that try to pull our strength from us-- spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. We also have an adversary that comes to steal our strength. He does this by trying to steal our joy- for the joy of the Lord is our strength. When we are feeling weak, when we have no strength, when we feel as if we can't go on any longer, we can take comfort in knowing that our wonderful God in heaven has the strength that we need. And the most amazing thing is not the fact that He is strong, but that He is willing, and promises, to impart His own strength into us when we are weak.
If you are feeling weak this morning, you don't have to. Look to the Lord. Ask Him for His strength. If you ask, you will receive. He does not withhold from us anything that we need. He will not withhold His strength from you. He will give you renewed strength to go through the times of trial and testing. He will give you His strength to run through a troop and leap over a wall. He will give you this strength to cross the desert and go through the storm. He will give you His strength to stand and withstand the attacks of the enemy. His strength will undergird you and cause you to make it... and not just barely make it, but make it through victoriously. 
Have a great day. When you are weak, you can become strong but not in your own strength which is limited, but with the unlimited strength of the Lord.
