Daily Walk with the Holy Spirit

So you think you are handicapped?

"Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands."

So you think that you have a handicap?

Have you ever told God, here I am use me, but then you come up with some excuse for Him not to use you?

Did you know that He is the Potter and we are the clay on the Potter's wheel?

"But the pot He was shaping from the clay was marred in His hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as it seemed best to Him." Jeremiah 18:4 New International Version

Most of us see things differently from God.

We think that our problems should be solved a certain way.

But God.

God will come up with a creative way that we would not even have thought of to solve our problems.

"Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails." Proverbs 19:21

Do you know what makes you handicapped?

What makes one most handicapped in my opinion are those who are troubled by negative thoughts and low expectations, and they let them rule over their thought life and life in general.

You may actually have a handicap, but it is how you see yourself through that handicap.

Do you feel sorry for yourself?

Do you expect less of yourself ?

Do others expect less of you?

Do you expect others to feel sorry for you?

Are you living with your handicap and letting God work through you?

Do you know that we would be far more limited that we are if we did not have the Potter's loving hands upon our life.

Our handicap or disability is only temporary.

Go will use us to touch others lives while we are here on this earth.

God will allow our disadvantages to advance beyond the order in our lives to bring maximum glory for Him.

God, releases power and infuses energy into our lives..

Our walk with God is not always neat and tidy or predictable.

Our walk is about Jesus, not about something or someone.

It is about Him and Him alone!

We must fight to remain free in God.

As we fight to stay free in God we are fighting to stay satisfied in God.

It is when we deny our disability through our weakness that we will realize the strength of God that we have.

It is through His strength that we can do all things!

"And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." II Corinthians 12:9

Our purpose in life does not depend upon understanding God's plan.

God loves us so much that He gave His only Son to die for us!

For you and me, right here, right now where we are.

God Himself is the answer to all of our questions.

He is there even through the pain!

He is there even through our sufferings!

He is the answer!

":for He hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." Hebrews 13:5b

"There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so will I be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee." Joshua 1:5
