Tired of waiting? Or tired of fighting? Are you feeling faint, ready to pass out? “…Gideon came to Jordan, and passed over, he, and the three hundred men that were with him, faint yet [still] pursuing …” (Judges 8:4)
Many times in the Word of God, we read the words “fight,” “press,” and “strive.” Luke tells us, “Strive to enter in at the strait gate…” (Luke 13:24)
“Strive to enter in” is going against this flesh. We must push. If we aren’t in forward motion, we will be going back. We don’t stand still in God. “…Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord…” (Exodus 14:13)
Stand still – STAND! I may not be still, but I’m still standing. Hold your ground!
“Then Moses said to the people, ‘Do not be afraid! Take your stand [be firm and confident and undismayed] and see the salvation of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today; for those Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see again.’” (Exodus 14:13 AMP)
“And I will come upon him while he is weary and weak handed, and will make him afraid…” (II Samuel 17:2). Many times, the enemy attacks us while we are weary and tries to make us fear.
Maybe it’s your finances, health, relationships… God is for us!
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper….”(Isaiah 54:17)
“He arose, and smote the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand clave unto the sword: and the LORD wrought a great victory that day…” (2 Samuel 23:10)
“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. “…for when I am weak, then am I strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
When we see or admit our weakness, it can become our strength when we give it all to God. Let your weakness become your strength.
