1 Corinthians 9:24 teaches us that life is a race. Christians are running with Christ and should depend on Him fully. We should seek heavenly things and follow after Christ. When we trust in Christ He strengthens us and gives us the ability to do things we couldn’t do on our own. God is the greatest source of all strength and fullness and will walk with us as we trust in Him. I thank God for His love and mercy. Amen
Ephesians 3 3:14-20 teaches us to bow before God. This could be seen as being in awe of Him and trusting in His purpose for us. When we trust in God He strengthens us through His spirit. When we allow God to work in our heart we grow in strength, love and faith for Him. We can not fully understand the greatness of God’s love for us and scripture teaches us this (Eph. 3:18), but God does want to make it more fully understood to us. When we begin to have an appreciation of the mystery of His love He begins to fill our hearts with joy and awe of His love. God working in us is able to do way more then we could ever imagine. God has a plan and purpose for our lives (Hebrews 13:20-21, 1 Peter 2:15, Jeremiah 29:11).”to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Eph 3:20).
Philippians 4:13 teaches that God gives us strength to do anything we need. It, is God who brings strength (Isaiah 40:29) in all areas including the ones we are weak in God is strong (2 Corinthians 12:9). The Bible teaches us that it gives God glory when we trust in Him when we are weak, God never fails. Jesus taught “I will never leave you; never will I forsake you. “And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Matthew 28:20 ESV”. God even spoke in the Old Testament telling us, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV” “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6:10” The greatest choice we can make in life is to trust God. Jesus came so that we could be forgiven of ours sins, however that is not all God came to give us a better life. The only way to fulfill God’s purpose in our lives is to trust in Him. I’m thankful for God’s abundant grace and mercy, amen.
