When We're Weak

When we are weak, He is strong. When we are afraid, He holds us. When we can’t walk, He will help us fly like eagles. When everything feels out of our control, we can know He holds the whole world. Nothing is impossible with God. Nothing is too big for Him to handle or too far out of His reach. He sees us. He sees any pain we are going through. He knows the number of our days And how many hairs are on each of our heads. He knows what is going on, and He will not let us go. He loves us and will always keep His promises. He will provide for us. He will hold us. These are such beautiful promises—rooted in Jesus’ death and resurrection. I want to remember, in Christ, I am secure no matter what my circumstances are. I am secure because my faith is in His work (Romans 8:34-39). He died, taking my sins upon Himself and giving me His righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:17-21). Then, He rose again, giving me eternal life (John 11:25-26). Ultimately, He will work everything for His good kingdom purposes, and I can rest in His strength (Romans 8:28; 2 Corinthians 12:9). And, because of Him, I can fly like an eagle through it all. • Bethany Acker • How can you keep the promises found in Jesus Christ—the crucified and risen Savior—in your mind? • How does relying on God help you in your day-to-day life? • To learn more about what it means to trust in Jesus, check out our “Know Jesus” page. But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)
