You didn’t think I’d forget Guilt-Free Friday, did you?! This morning I realized that while I was coveting prayers of others and “praying” to God, I had not truly sat in His presence and listened. I was expecting to hear from Him but I was the one doing all of the talking. He probably could not get a word in edge-wise (my husband is going to be in stitches when he reads that.)
This morning, I pulled out my tried and true and trusted favorite devotional of all times…God Calling. It is a great devotional, but the thing that makes it most unique is that often I feel as if it is divinely written to me, just for me, that day. I truly believe that God spoke to the authors of this book and continues to speak to me directly through it. Today was no exception…
Rejoice at Weakness
Savior, breathe forgiveness o’er us. All our weakness Thou dost know.
Yes! I know all. Every cry for mercy. Every sigh of weariness. Every plea for help. Every sorrow over failure. Every weakness.
I am with you through all. My tender sympathy is yours. My strength is yours.
Rejoice at your weakness. My children. My strength is made perfect in weakness. When you are weak then I am strong. Strong to help, to cure, to protect.
Trust Me, My children. I know all. I am beside you. Strong, strong, strong to save. Lean on My Love, and know that all is well.
Sigh. How weak and weary I feel and how much I needed to be reminded of His strength, His ability to know all. I realized I am still relying on my own strength, which is pitiful and weak. Today I rejoice that I am weak and He is Strong, strong, strong to save.
