Do you feel like its all too much for you?
You feel like its all too much for you to handle?
You feel like the task ahead is like a great mountain that just won’t budge?
Like its a great mountain that just won’t move no matter how hard you try?
I’ve felt that way countless times before.
In fact,I felt that way last week and right there in the auditorium where I was sitting,it all seemed so overwhelming and I started shedding tears,right there in public.
Anyone who noticed must have thought-“what’s wrong with this lady?”
The only thing wrong with me was that I felt so small,so little,so weak,so inadequate and not at all able to face the task ahead.
A lot of people seemed like they were doing more than me,they seemed stronger,more cut out and better equipped for the task ahead than I did…
Do you feel that way too?
Do you feel like you are just one little,small weak somebody in light of the task ahead?
I had an answer in my spirit with tears in my eyes that day and of course,I am sharing it with you all,my blog loves…
And Gideon replied;-
“But Lord,how can I rescue Israel?
My clan is the weakest in the whole tribe of Manasseh and I AM THE LEAST IN MY ENTIRE FAMILY!” (Judges 6:15)
The Lord said to him;-
“I WILL BE WITH YOU…”
And the Lord said to me;-
“I WILL BE WITH YOU”
And the Lord said to you;-
“I WILL BE WITH YOU”
And that is just it!
We do not need to feel like we can tackle the task ahead by our own strength…
We do not need to feel like we have all it takes…
Neither do we need to shed tears and feel so inadequate…
God has said,I WILL BE WITH YOU…
And when the Balm Of Gilead is with you,when He is in your boat,then be rest assured that the so-called fearful task is a work-over.
We do not need to feel weak…
I take that back.
Feeling weak is a good thing…
Because in our weakness,His strength is shown…
I saw this prayer somewhere and its just so apt.
It says-; “Lord, help me to stay still. Help me to shut up. Help me to see that in my nothingness, You can do more…”
In our weakness…
In our nothingness…
He can do more.
He can do ama-mazing,awesome and trail-blazing things!
Don’t be tensed.
Don’t be scared.
Don’t fear the fears of this World.
GOD IS WITH US!

Big Amen to this . This is very refreshing and truly encouraging ,even in our weakness, God’s strengths is revealed. for someone like me who loves to be in control, its easy for me to think i can achieve things by myself. This post is a rethink for me as it has personally blessed me today.
Keeping going girl,very soon you will speak to nations in Jesus name.
Writers rock! Jesus rocks!
