When Strong Denies The Release of Weak

“For You (God) equipped me with strength for the battle; You made those who rise against me sink under me.” 2 Samuel 22:40 (ESV)

Ever experienced moments when being strong denied you the release of being weak? We do a great job at being courageous. We put on the happy face and preserve even in the toughest of storms. We hold the family together with our knees shaking beneath, and yes, we even tell ourselves we’ve got this covered. We keep pushing through claiming strong because admitting weak would take too much energy.

Wonder what we’re really missing when we don’t admit weak? When we fail to let go of the strength evaporating around us and attempt to keep doing it all, we miss out on all of these:

• God compels us to embrace weak because He is right there with us (Judges 6: 15-16).
• God promises to strengthen our weak (Ezekiel 34:16).
• The Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness and intercedes what we can’t put into words (Romans 8:26).
• God chooses the weak over strong – those who desperately depend on Him (I Corinthians 1:27).
• God promises to raise in power the weak (I Corinthians 15:43).
• God’s power is magnified in our weaknesses (2 Corinthians 11:30).
• We are made perfect in our weakness – transformed by our loving God (2 Corinthians 12:9).
• We can be content with weakness when we depend on God’s strength to sustain us (2 Corinthians 12:10).
• God sympathizes with our weaknesses – He knows what we are facing (Hebrews 4:15).
• Exercising faith infuses our weak into strong (Hebrews 11:34).

Loving these words of God today friends. Totally encouraged that yes, we can be weak. We can release our control and run into our Father’s arms. We can admit the struggle, remove the mask, unveil the unpretty and still be filled with His strength. Why? Because it’s not about us and what we can handle or take on. It’s all about His glory and power shining through our toughest battles and positioning us for victory. Today’s weak can be tomorrow’s strong if we plug into God’s power. And it all starts when we release our strong and chose weak.

“Father, You delight in transforming our weaknesses into beautiful displays of your power and grace. We are safely held in Your arms.”

For His Glory
