Sometimes, God leads us into a place of weakness so that we may know everything we have ever accomplished was only by God’s grace strengthening us and guiding us through. – Jocelyn Soriano
It is not by our strength alone that we accomplish great things, but by God’s strength. Without Him, we can accomplish nothing.
All our gifts, our talents, and our resources came from Him who loves us and knows our needs even before we ask. He supplies us all the days that we live and everything we could ever do is because of His grace.
In times when we reach a place of weakness, let us remember where our hope really is. It’s not upon our strength alone but in God’s strength. We need not be afraid, because all these years we thought we were able to make it through on our own, God was really with us, carrying us upon His shoulders.
Let all our feelings of helplessness draw us closer to Him who is the fountain of our refreshment and strength. Let it remind us that we need not think we are orphans because we have a Father who loves us and cares for all our needs.
You shall remember all the way which the LORD your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, to test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not. He humbled you, allowed you to be hungry, and fed you with manna, which you didn’t know, neither did your fathers know, that he might teach you that man does not live by bread only, but man lives by every word that proceeds out of the LORD’s mouth. – Deuteronomy 8, WEBBE
