God – Spotter

devo feb 18]“It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.” 2 Samuel 22:33 (NIV)

From the sounds of the groans coming from the work out bench, I was positive I couldn’t lift that much weight.  As the girl struggled to lift the bar one more time and get it back in place, her arms wobbled.  Immediately her spotter jumped into action helping her align the weights back into position and onto the rest.  She breathed a deep sigh of relief.  For the first time, she had lifted the most weight ever. Despite the fact she needed her spotter to assist at the end, you could see victory in her smile.  Don’t we want to taste that kind of sweet victory?  Don’t we want to stretch, take in a deep breath and push past all the obstacles?  Even if our hands are wobbling underneath the weight of a heavy load there is nothing  more gratifying than knowing we can make it, and we don’t have to do it alone .   At first glance – it may have seemed much more than we could accomplish – far too much for us to even attempt. And that’s exactly where God wants us – desperately dependent on our God spotter to help us along the way.  We’re never alone in this journey called life; He’s always present – by our side – ready to act on our behalf.   Our sovereign God knows what we can handle, what we need to learn and where we need to grow.  We might groan, moan and feel overwhelmed, but  God is available 24/7  to act on our behalf.

 “Father, life is so much sweeter with You by my side.  Knowing that You are standing with me, empowering me and encouraging me guarantees my victory.”

For His Glory
