TOBI Says, That is up­side down

Calhoun Times - - RELIGION -

12:9, “My strength is made per­fect in weak­ness.”

Does it mean you are stronger if you are weaker? It re­ally means that you are stronger when you trust the Lord Je­sus and de­pend on His strength.

Many verses in the book of Psalms say the same thing. In Psalm 18 it says, “The Lord is my strength and my rock.”

In the book of Zechariah, in Chap­ter 4, the Bi­ble says, “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit.” It is power of God do­ing things for you.

It is like the lit­tle kid try­ing to hit the ball. When dad has his arms around him, the young­ster has to al­low dad to do the work. The tighter the lit­tle one holds the bat, the less that dad can do.

What holds the Chris­tian back is when they try to do it on their own. Their strength has lim­its. Pride gets in the way. Like the lit­tle kid that says “I can do it my­self,” and ev­ery­body laughs.

God has a plan for you, but you must choose to fol­low it. The way that may seem strange will turn out to be the best way. Re­mem­ber He can see the whole path ahead. Are you will­ing to trust Him?

With God on your team, you can over­come any­thing.
