Do you ever wonder if you are strong enough to endure what you’re going through? Strong enough to make it through? Strong enough to pass the test?
It’s not up to you. It’s up to God. You have the power of the great I AM living within you. He promises that you can do all things through Christ who gives you strength (Philippians 4:13).
You don’t have to possess the strength, you just have to be a vessel through which His strength flows through. When you can’t, I AM can.
“All the weak; find their strength; at the sound of Your great name.
Hungry souls; receive grace; at the sound of Your great name.
The fatherless; they find their rest; at the sound of Your great name.
Sick are healed; and the dead are raised; at the sound of Your great name…”
You just show up and let Him do the work through you. Let I AM be all that you need Him to be for you in your weakness. He promises that He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it (Philippians 1:6)
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think when you have Him residing within you.
It’s not about who you are, it’s about who you are in Christ. He’s your courage. He’s your strength. He’s your wisdom. Rest in Him.
I don’t know where you are today, or how you are feeling, but He can meet you exactly where you are. Just say His name…Jesus.
Because of Him,
A short brief about Hope Prevails.
