Winsome Wednesday - Who is Stronger?

In the world today its about who is prettier, cleverer, wealthier, stronger, etc, etc!  But God's way is not like that.  For example, David was chosen not for his looks, he was chosen because God looks at the heart (1 Sam 16v7).

The same applies to strength!  Prov 24 v 5:  A wise man is strong and is better than a strong man, and a man of knowledge increases and strengthens his power.

Gideon did not overcome his enemies with a multitude of men to fight.  He overcame them by being obedient to God.  God reduced his army to a handful, and then sent them into the enemies camp with a trumpet in one hand and a torch in the other (Judges 7 vs 9-23).  The point being, he did not lay a hand on the enemy.  God did it all.


Are you feeling small in the world?  Do you feel that the world sees you as weak?  Do you feel judged by the world to be not as attractive or as clever or as wealthy as another?  I want to remind you loudly and clearly those are the standards brought by the devil to bring condemnation.

God does not bring condemnation!  He brings conviction!  And it is conviction that helps us and guides us where it it God wants us to be.

Be encouraged today, if God is your strength, you are stronger than the world's standard.  They cannot even fathom it because they have no understanding of it.

God bless
Tracy

  4. This is so encouraging! I have been feeling weak lately so this is a timely reminder that if God is my strength, I couldn't be stronger!
