Where does your strength come from?

For God has said..."My grace is sufficient for thee: for My strength is made perfect in weakness." 2 Corinthians 12:9a

God has promised to meet every need that we have.

God can not do anything for us until we admit our need to Him, for Him and fall at His feet.

When we have given it to God we then do not need to worry about whether He will find us fit enough to do His work.

Do you require of Him?

"For in Him we live, move and have our being;" Acts 17:28a

Though I am weak, He is strong!

"The Lord is my strength and my song." Exodus 15:2

From weakness we are made strong.

It is when we realize that we are weak and powerless that God then can begin to work.

When we try to persuade ourselves that we are something when actually we are nothing terrible.

But when we confess that we are nothing we begin to lay the foundation that we are found in Him!

When we become totally dependant upon God, we become available for His intended use.

We don't have to have the answer.

We don't have to perform any deeds.

We don't have to be remarkable, or sensational, or even smart... All we need is God!

"My Father I commend myself to you, I give myself to you, I leave myself in Your hands. My Father, do with me as you wish. Whatever you do with me, I thank you, I accept everything. I am ready for anything. I thank You always. So long as Your will is done in me...I have no other wish, My God. I put my soul into Your hands, giving it to You, My God, with all my heart's love, which makes me crave to abandon myself to You without reserve, with utter confidence. For are You not my Father?"
-Taken from The Meditations of a Hermit, by Charles de Foucauld
