The feeling of weakness, and the feeling of hopelessness are both inevitable. I think they are feelings we run from because society has raised us to believe that being weak leaves room for people to walk all over you, or being weak means you can’t hold on to the pole(the circumstance) so you ‘ll let go and fall. Our father God says it’s okay to be weak and it’s okay to fall. In fact, when you are weak is when you are more prone to call on him; and this is the GREATEST thing you can do. God wants you to invite him into those dark times and allow him to do the work. What we consider weaknesses are the very things that God uses to get us to the next level. Don’t run from God when you fall, don’t run from him when you feel weak because he says it is okay. What i try to do when I am feeling down and out, is seek Gods presence in the situation, because once you do that, you can find the good out of it and have the faith that it will turn around; and where you will end up will be 10 times better than where you were before. Hard times aren’t always the work of the Devil; but because we think they are we run from them or try to put these problems on shelves and let the problem eat at us from a distance. In fact, God sometimes throws obstacles at us so that you will call on him; but he will never hurt you; he will only help you. True healing and actual strength comes from going back to that shelve, picking up the problem and facing it. Don’t be afraid to stay under that dark cloud and use Our fathers strength to fight through it. He will carry you through it just as long as you let him. The next time, you are weak; remember there is beauty in the struggle and what you can’t do, God will do. In difficult times I want all of you to remember these 3 rules: 1. Accept it - don’t let that hard time define you because it doesn’t. Don’t let it alter your emotions because it shouldn’t.
“Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls” - James 1:19-20 2. Shift your perspective - God will not give you anything you can’t handle. Therefore there is a BIGGER picture.
“Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us” - Romans 5:3-5 3. Trust God!! - he knows the beginning and the end to your circumstance, therefore he is the only one that can get you out.
“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it” - 1 Corinthians 10:13 And remember, he is always right on time. God bless you.
