“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26
We cry and pray and struggle and worship.
We succeed in laying it all down at the feet of Jesus, only to allow our flesh to swoop in and snatch it back from the cross.
Hope can be a rollercoaster – in one moment, we’ve placed our hope in Jesus’ safe hands where they belong, the next, we allow worry and doubt to creep in our hearts.
On our own, we fail. On our own, we lose sight. On our own, we lose hope.
But God is the strength for our hearts, which means it doesn’t depend on us. If the Word says God IS something, that doesn’t mean He is only strong when we are strong and get it all perfectly right. It’s not a who-has-the-best-muscles-competition with the Lord. Praise God, it’s not about our ability and capacity, but His!
In our weakness, in our flesh, in our humanity – God is our strength.
If you’re struggling, feeling weak and hopeless, and frustrated today, take a second and acknowledge His mighty power. God is your strength and portion forever.
When have you experienced the Lord being your strength?
My name is Brittney, and I am a content contributor for Waiting for Baby Bird Ministries. I am so glad to meet you! My goal in life was to be a mother, popping out my two babies and perfectly wrapping up that part of the journey by the time I was 25. Now 36, married for 11 years and still no baby in my arm despite 9.5 years of TTC, the Lord has equipped my heart and made me passionate about encouraging my sisters in the wait to trust in the Lord and His perfect timing. If you’re looking for someone who will disciple and challenge you to grow in the Lord and trust Him, I’m your gal!
