I lie down and sleep;
I wake again,
because the Lord sustains me.
God is so good!
The past few days have been really rough for me and Wednesday I had finally had enough. I just let loose and poured out my heart to God. Through many tears, I wrote yesterday post, I Quit!
But God's Word says, "Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning." (Ps. 30:5) Today I am rejoicing because God said to me:
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses,
so that Christ's power may rest on me.
That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses,
in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.
For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9,10 (emphasis mine)
I've been trying for way too long to be strong in my abilities. Sometimes that works. But most of the time it doesn't, because I'm not talented enough, smart enough, or strong enough. I am weak.
But God is strong.
When I allow God to fill me with His power, then I am strong - stronger than I could ever be on my own. That is why I can say:
Whatever I have,
wherever I am,
I can make it through anything
in the One who makes me who I am.
Philippians 4:13, The Message
Which side of the line are you on? Is it the nighttime with weeping? Remember, even at night the sun is still shining; we just can't see it. During the night, the SON is still shining. God is there and morning is coming.
The sun is coming. Joy is coming. Hold on, the SON is coming!
Hallelujah, our God reigns!
