A strong person has taken the time to learn and grow from what they know to be true. The Bible is filled with stories of heroes and people who are just like you and me who dared to trust God. They have allowed themselves freedom to move forward and hold onto the word of God.
BE STRONG and COURAGEOUS!
How you view yourself really matters. Do you find yourself making excuses or feeling you are not good enough? I know many people who can't see themselves the way God does, but they focus on what they did wrong in life. Their focus in on the negative past and the not the promises of the future with God. Once you have asked Jesus into your heart and forgiveness of sin, he comes in and a new beginning is here. Looking through eyes of courage and being stronger than you thought. You know who God is and you won't back down from the plan for your life.
Genesis 28:13-15 New International Version (NIV)
13 There above it stood the Lord, and he said: “I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying.
14 Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring. 15 I am with you and will watch over youwherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
A STRONG PERSON ~ knows that the Lord is with them
It doesn't mean that a strong person doesn't need a hug, encouraging words and a gentle reminder that they are not alone. It is as if strong people can't feel down or need prayer, because they do. We surrender our will to God and he always greatness to come to your life. We might need the courage to fight the battle of now. But we can't back down and must stand up for what is right. The lion inside of us must roar and run to Jesus. He has given us power to overcome the enemy of our souls.
Look into the mirror of hope today and see God working things out for you. It might not come right now, maybe not today but certainly tomorrow. Somethings need to happen in order to move forward in life. Let go, let God and receive power by the name of Jesus. Through it all, I've learned to trust in God. My prayers continue for you (readers of my blog) and your family/friends.
