Strong in Christ
This might sound odd to you if you haven’t yet experienced Christ’s power in your life. God’s grace is such a powerful force that nothing compares to it. And it does make us strong in Christ. On our own, yes, we are weak. But when we lean on Christ, we are made strong in him. Hence, we are not afraid of anything. Not even the devil.
Because of God’s power in our lives, we are not afraid of anything. Not even the devil. With the words of A. W. Tozer, “I’m not afraid of the devil. The devil can handle me – he’s got judo I never heard of. But he can’t handle the One to whom I’m joined; he can’t handle the One to whom I’m united; he can’t handle the One whose nature dwells in my nature.” We can’t handle the devil. But God can. Outside of Christ, we are weak. But in Christ, we truly are strong.
How wonderful, liberating and encouraging! It’s time to be bold and follow Christ wherever he leads us. Let’s celebrate our weaknesses, that’s when God’s power is made perfect in us. That’s when Christ’s power rests on us.
How perfectly you’ve arranged everything.
It’s not about us, it’s about you.
Thank you that your power is made perfect in our weaknesses.
Be praised for making us strong in Christ.
Your way of loving us as we are is a huge blessing.
May your power rest on us all the days of our lives.
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: Do you dare to celebrate your weaknesses? Have you experienced Christ’s power in your life?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you let God make you strong in Christ!
