The Strong Ones…

Would I be wrong if I say that I know someone who doesn’t believe in the power of being motivated? This individual ran out of steam because of difficult situations life had dished her.

Would it be right for me to fault her? No. She didn’t choose to find herself in that situation. However, there is one thing she could have done about it.

For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.

Jeremiah 29:11 (AMP)

I was in class this week and in one of the questions sessions, the facilitator emphasized the importance of staying on top of situations that can be controlled.

A child learning to ride a bicycle doesn’t give up the first time he falls. He helps himself up and continues with the process. The difference between this situation and the first that I mentioned is the kind of decision both individuals made.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9 (AMP)

As much as life deals you and I blows, the scriptures encourages us severally to be of good cheer. Nobody promised that it would be completely easy but you have to keep keeping on.

In times like this, it becomes vital what your mind consumes; who you surround yourself with, the things you listen to and the things you say concerning that situation and even yourself.

[28] Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
[29] He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.

Isaiah 40: 28-29 (NLT)

Every one of us created beings will grow weary at some point because there’s a law of nature the body has to obey. Only the Maker of these Creatures doesn’t get tired.

On your tired days, He never leaves you to yourself. His Spirit dwells in you and causes you to be comforted, encourages you to remain strong. Rely on the One who made you for strength today!

[30] Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion.
[31] But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40: 30-31 (NLT)
