Oftentimes, God works through the circumstances of life – your difficulty, sickness, disease, affliction, setback, attack for you to see His position. If we rely on our natural strength, it will one day let us down. Where does the strength come from to see the race to an end?
It comes from within.
The world may see strength in force, in dominance, in always winning. But my Saviour taught me to look at life the other way round – that the greatest strength is in surrendering to God, going the path of humility and self-denial.
Some of us think holding on makes us strong but sometimes it is letting go. True strength is to forgive all. To love from the heart. To dishonour ourselves so that Christ may be honoured.
True humility is not weakness – but strength. Unless we are humble, we will not bow to God or seek Him for assistance (James 4:1). It is not a matter of combining our strength with God’s strength
but a total and complete removal of our strength to put on God’s own.
Then like Apostle Paul, you can say, “When I am weak, then I am strong”.
