Good ?’s Good God

‘Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.’

-Isaiah 40:28-31

Driving down the road today and heard these verses spoken over the radio. This is a piece of Scripture that I’ve heard time and time again but each time I hear it, it hits me even harder. I love that question that Isaiah is asking to God’s people here. Right before these questions, Isaiah asks some more questions to the people of Israel;

“‘O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles? O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights?’ (Isaiah 40:27)

What I noticed about these questions is that they are rhetorical, meaning that Isaiah isn’t expecting a response from the people of Israel. They are questions asked where Isaiah points out where their little faith has failed them and questions that pierce right to the heart of the people. These questions for them and even for myself as I sit here asking them personally, they are extremely convicting!

There is so many moments of my day where I am so attached to all the doubts, lies, and seemingly impossible situations I am faced with in my life. There is so many moments where I sit just letting the lies of the enemy completely rule my heart and mind, as my thoughts increase in insecurity, my faith continues to decrease. It’s these moments where I am seeing so short sighted and horizontally, putting the things going on in my life that weigh me down in a perspective based off of what I have to offer, and my own strength. That is a recipe for disaster and defeat. It’s easy to get caught up in the weight of our problems and then when we match them up with what we have to bring to the table, which isn’t much, we are asking for these negative thoughts and insecurities to eat us alive.

It’s in these questions where I can hear the point Isaiah is trying to get across, in other terms it’s like; “DUDE, what are you doing? How could you sit there and act like God doesn’t know exactly what you’re going through? How could you sit there and act like you’re in these battles alone, with only your own personal resources to rely on?”

Then the BIG questions that seem to pierce right to where my struggle of self-reliance and lack of faith is;

Do you not know? Have you not heard?” 

Seriously, let those questions sink in for a moment. Let those questions come up as reminders when you are sitting in those moments that were mentioned above. And the truth is we all have those moments, we’re human and weak, some just do a better job of hiding it than others.

As soon as you begin to believe those lies that the Devil is trying to pour into you, “you’ll never make it out! You’ll always be defeated! This is impossible!” And there is so many more. When you hear those lies creeping in that always seem to lead into a deeper and deeper hole of fear, doubt and so many insecurities, ask these questions to yourself!

Do you not know the truth that you are not alone in this fight or any moment of your life, or have you not heard just how powerful and great the God you serve is? Do you not know;  “The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary,” 

Sitting in the truth of who God is and what His Word proclaims to us brings a different light into what was turning into a very dark situation. Knowing who God is, that He’s so mighty, so good, and so awesome that we could never begin to understand His characteristics fully. That’s a lot!!!

Then continue asking these questions to yourself as we encounter in these verse not only who God is, the magnitude of who He is and the out of this world characteristics that He possesses, but we see His promises that were made here to the people of Israel. And as Jesus has given us full access to God as sons and daughters of His, we are too His people and God doesn’t change, neither does how He treats His people.

Do you not know; “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak?” Yeah, as we sit in our own insecurities, in our own problems and living out of our own weak strength as if that’s all we got. The truth is, that’s not all we have because we have God by our side, right there with us when things are going good and even when things seem to be spiraling out of control. We have the God who created the heavens, and the earth, and everything in it with us constantly, fighting for us and being so faithful to supply us with His strength!!!! With His Almighty power!!! So many times I live and think as if I’m a lost cause, I have no chance, and I let my tough circumstances completely devour my confidence and faith. But why? Do I not know the truth that is written plainly for us to see in God’s Word????

Do I not know that; “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.’

These questions added to these truths makes me want to shake myself and loudly ask, “DUDE WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” I have no reason to live in insecurities of fear and doubt!!! I have no reason to believe the lies of enemy that has already lost the battle for our lives with the Son of God!!! The truth that God brings to our lives is SO MUCH GREATER!!! I have no reason to think and act out of only what I have when I have been adopted as a child of God Himself, where my identity is completely and fully in Jesus Christ. I have no reason to live in such a horizontal perspective of what we see is what it is when God says that the law of what makes sense to us where even the strongest humans alive grow tired and weary, even they stumble and fall. God has given us so much more to hold onto and to place our hope in. He’s given us Himself, He’s given us His mighty strength as our supply. God raises the “normal” or horizontal way of thinking and living to His vertical perspective of what reality is for us when our eyes are raised toward Him, His truth and His promises. That when we put aside all the crap that continues to burden us and weigh us down in our daily lives, and believe the truth that God is greater than anything we face, God is with us, God renews our strength as we surrender ourselves to put our hope in Him.

I was just thinking about the two main questions that hit me the hardest; “do you not know? Have you not heard?” At a quick glance it makes no sense why Isaiah would put the second question in there because they pretty much mean the same thing right? The question of hearing makes more sense now because it’s easy for us to read God’s Word and take in His truth, it’s easy to know these things about who God is and the promises He’s given us. Knowing is one thing but when it comes to our active faith, when we’re going through the nastiness and grind of these battles. That’s when knowing the truth can only take us far, it’s in those moments where we can easily go down the rabbit hole to lies, self-reliance, and insecurities or going God’s way, resting in His strength and in the power of knowing who He is along with our identities in Him. Those moments in the heat of the battle are the toughest ones and asking these questions can change a lot in the direction we end up going. This is where we know the truth but living it becomes hard. So ask the second question, “have you not heard?” It’s in those moments that we need to not only know the truth but HEAR IT!!! It’s in those moments where we need to speak those truths of God over our situations and weakness. Praying out loud the truth that of the mighty strength we have in such a present and faithful God! Knowing it is one thing but hearing it is what brings up reminders in our thoughts and hearts, it shuts out all the lies from the enemy and the lies that we tell ourselves. Really HEARING it goes deeper than just your ears, it goes to your heart and from the heart faith will overflow as you walk in the strength God gives us!!!!

That was one of the biggest lessons from this for me, constantly asking myself those questions especially in moments of battles and digging in deeper to know more of God’s truth so I am prepared to remind myself and speak His truth over all the lies and self-deceit that my weak flesh may want to create. In the heat of the battle, I know that I don’t have to take the easy way out that I might have taken in my past, because I can put my hope in God, and believe the truth that He will renew and replenish my strength in any situation! And I’m thankful to share that God gives you His way of walking through these battles too!!! With our hope firmly planted in God He WILL allow us to;

soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

 

 

Where’s Your Strength???

God Gold of the Day

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭

Hey! I hope everyone is having an awesome Monday! The last few weeks it’s been really hard to sit down and really dig into some Gold with ya! I’ve been interning at a church, working part time and freshly married so it’s definitely been a challenge to keep my priorities in order and find the energy and strength to send you daily God Gold messages. It’s been hurting me to not spend the time sending you these messages because it’s been such a huge part of my life these past couple of years and I want y’all to have all the Gold you can possibly have! As much as I’ve wanted to use my busy life to make excuses, I realized today that it’s just a challenge. A challenge that God has allowed me to go through to teach me and grow me but the biggest lesson I’ve been taught so far is written in this one verse. I pray this lesson will revolutionize your perspective on every area of your life and where you find your strength.

The last few weeks at my church we’ve been going through this series called, “The Fight”, on the armor of God. I’ve had to study this passage up and down to teach the youth on it and what’s crazy is how I seemed to overlook this foundational piece to the armor.

In verse 10, before Paul starts talking about the armor of God and why we need it in the battle we face, he says this simple, short little statement to start off. Just like putting on the armor of God sounds “really good”, the question I’ve asked myself is, what does that look like in my life? I challenge you to ask yourself this same question and take some inventory on the areas of your life where you go out of your own strength and the areas that you trust the Lord for His strength. Seriously, asking yourself good questions can really break down the walls of a lot of things that may be holding us back.

Like I said, things have been wild for me lately and I haven’t handled it all that well. I looked back at how I’m attacking the challenge that’s been placed in front of me and it’s obvious what my problem is. I’m trying to be strong in Jordan and figure everything out on my own, the moments I feel totally drained, like I’ve got nothing left to give, I still seem to think I have some control in getting through it. It’s been a struggle to say the least but in the struggle I’ve seen other moments, moments where I realize how far out of my depth I am, how I don’t have what it takes to get through, and I go to the only One who is strong enough to carry me through it. Those moments of surrendering to the Lord when I obviously have no other resources or self strength to turn to, He provides, He renews my strength and He does things that I could of NEVER done on my own.

I’ve went through so many days lately in fear and worry that I don’t have enough only to realize today that, I don’t have enough. But I don’t have to be fearful or worried about it because seeking God’s strength, surrendering my want to be in control and fix every problem to Him, trusting and believing that His strength is more than enough. My own strength led me to a very fearful, weak life. Actually taking in this truth Paul gives us, this foundational truth that gives us the strength to fight in this daily battle of spiritual warfare against ourselves and this enemy we face, it’s changed everything.

It blows my mind how every area of my life looks different when seeing it through the strength the Lord has given me. Fear turns to faith, worry turns to confidence, struggle turns to strengthening.

I want to ask that you please pray for me in this battle I’m facing, that I’ll let go of self and lean on the Lord’s strength only! And I will be praying for the same in your life over whatever challenges you may be facing! Take some inventory on where your strength comes from and stand firm in this powerful truth! Excited for you to see how life changes when living with the Creator of the world’s strength compared to the lack of strength we have!

God Gold of the Day

“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭41:28-31‬ ‭

 

Continuing to talk more about God, digging deeper into who He is, and just how amazing this relationship we have with Him is. I’ve heard these verses a few times before but mostly I just thought they sounded cool, “renew my strength, mount up with wings like eagles.” I mean, come on, tell me that doesn’t sound super cool?!??

But today I experienced these verses in my life and realized that this Word doesn’t just sound cool, it’s true, it’s cool and it’s so real how these aren’t just words but God’s Word to me and you, and His Word is real and true!!!! Sorry I’m getting jacked up! But been dealing with some allergy stuff the past few days, nothing major but with each day it’s just gotten worse and worse even with taking medicine. The tough part is that I’ve had things going on that I couldn’t miss, yesterday was work 8am-5pm then church from 6:30-9, then work again today along with wedding stuff to do and getting ready to move out. It was a lot to handle and to be honest I knew I didn’t have a choice but to handle it.

What’s crazy is that I’m not very good with being sick. I usually start acting like a victim, complaining, wanting to pull that sick card and I usually just lie down and give up. I wanted so badly to act with my “usual” and give up yesterday, call out of work, not go to church, I didn’t feel like doing either but I knew I needed the money, my soon to be wife needed it, and there was kids that needed to be served. I could tell you all day long that it was me that did all this, persevered and got through it but I’d be lying. If it was up to me I wouldn’t have even got out of bed today or yesterday. I was in a tough spot, I didn’t feel like I had enough in me to make it through and do what needed to be done, I had no one or nowhere else to turn to but God. So I prayed, then as the sickness didn’t get better but got worse, I kept praying.

I was simply just asking God to help me get through the day, to show a good attitude to each person I was around at work or at church despite how I felt and wanted to act. God just please give me strength to endure and survive. I wanted so bad to go my usual route but as the days went on, the worse I felt but I could feel God pushing me forward, giving me everything I needed to get through and even a little more to get through like a champion. I felt defeated but God helped me feel victorious.

These verses speak so true to what I went through these past couple of days. It’s an experience that points directly to God and what He’s capable of doing in our lives. I love how the beginning of the verses start, “Have you not known, have you not heard?”

It’s a question we can ask ourselves daily whether we are going through physical struggles, emotional or just life struggles. Have you not heard of God, have you not heard of what He can do, what He is capable of doing?

Then it’s like Isaiah is saying, alright buckle your seat belts and I’ll show you the answer.

“The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.

“Everlasting”- never ending, eternal, never dying, always living GOD!!!

“The creator of the ends of the earth.”

Wow!!! Think about that for a second, this God we have the privilege of having a relationship with, this God who loves us, this same God created EVERYTHING!!! Look at how powerful and capable God is!

“He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

Now we see what God does for us, how He treats us and loves us. When we are weak, God is there to give us strength, if we have no might, if we are in a situation that looks impossible, a sickness, an addiction, anything! God increases the might of those people. Even when the people who should never be tired or give out do give out, like it says youths or young people. If you just “wait on the Lord.” Be PATIENT in His PROMISE, in His POWER, even when it looks like things are just getting worse, wait on God.

The Lord will renew their strength”

RENEW”: to make like new : restore to freshness, vigor, or perfection

When we feel old, worn out, weak, and a victim to impossible circumstances, God RENEWS OUR STRENGTH! He gives us a new energy, strength and power to endure that we didn’t have just a minute ago. God does what we think only a good nights sleep or medicine can do, He gives us what we need and then some to not just get through but walk through our struggle and weakness victoriously!

“they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

And the part I always thought just sounded cool. Well it’s even cooler now because it’s real life, it’s God! It’s what God can do in our lives! I’m amazed that I made it through these days and the only thing I can think to say is, God!!! It’s so awesome that we serve a God that is so constant in His love to us. When we take our problems or weaknesses to Him, we are speaking to a God that can do it all! Look around you He has done it all! But it’s just awesome to know when we take these things we’re dealing with to God, He always responds in provision and giving us all we need and then some. Realizing these verses weren’t just cool but real truth about God and what He’s capable of doing. Made me think of what the possibilities are in my life when I give my burdens to God, my addictions and my struggles. After watching God work these last couple of days it’s obvious that there’s nothing He can’t do but just looking at what takes place when God is at the lead, when all we have is depending on Him, God moves us from our “usual” or the worlds “usual” and lifts us up, carries us and gives us the strength to fly into the unusual!

With God in my life, He gave me the strength to rise up and do things that I usually wouldn’t do, things that I thought I couldn’t do. What do you need to take to God? How can God renew your strength? For what situation do you need strength? What happens when you trust in who He is and what He can do? Can you imagine a life risen above the usual or norm? Well if you have God then you can believe and trust that He will show you and give you everything you need to live that life! God takes us from our weakness and rises us up to His level of life, with His level of power, to fulfill His mighty purpose! If you think God can’t do it, think again because there’s nothing our God can’t do!!!!

Power Source 2

God Gold of the Day

“20 My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 
21I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die.”
– Galatians 2:20-21

Hope everybody had a super cool Tuesday! Going right off of yesterday’s God Gold, this lesson of God being our ONLY source of power for us to live this life has been huge for me! Not because I’ve learned it and lived it because it’s been real daggum hard to humble myself enough to put me to the side long enough to receive this truth in the fullest. I pray this power source lesson sequel can be a big blessing to you and hey, if you’re in a power struggle between using what you got and stepping aside to live in what God has, I’m right there with ya! But it’s alright! God is teaching us, growing us and molding us to be better by doing less and trusting Him more!

It’s been a constant battle for me in this life following Christ, after years of playing sports and living in this world, my mindset is so wrapped around the “I just have to work harder to overcome, please God and be better. It’s on me and the work I put in.” It’s what we can so easily lean on since we’ve attacked life and our problems this way for so long and the world around us tells us these lies to attack life in this way. But it’s just not true at all. The past few days, I’ve realized more than ever that to come to God as the source of my power, I must first remember the Gospel. The truth about my desperate need for Him in all areas of life. Without need for God and His power in our lives, then we usually don’t ask for help right? Because we’ve got this under control, right??? NOOOO!!!!!

The Gospel speaks the life-giving and life-changing truth so clearly to us, the whole purpose for Jesus sacrificing Himself on the cross for us was the fact that we were so wrapped up in sin and death, there’s nothing we could do to change that no matter how hard we work. Jesus saved us and by faith, He gives us the opportunity to live as one with Him, living in His power, drawing our strength from Jesus Christ, the perfect and righteous Son of God!!! So what’s the point of trying so hard to be strong and courageous. to be better? With our faith and dependence set on Christ and Christ alone, He gives us everything we need to live strong and courageous lives!!!!

It’s this awesome view of the truth that in this relationship with Christ, “My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” 

You see that? Your old self, the one that used to have to work and “do enough” to gain acceptance and worth in this world. your old self is dead dude. Seriously, coming to faith in Christ means you have died to your former life and ways of living and now you live with Christ in you!!! Yeah you heard that right!!! The I mentality, “I can do this, I just need to work harder, do more.” Christ loved you so much that He died for you because it’s the only way for us to ever experience life in the fullest and have access to God and His awesome power. We can try all we want but the “I” will never be enough! That’s the Good News, you’re not enough but you don’t have to be because Christ was perfect, Christ made the sacrifice died the death so we could die to our old life of slavery of weakness. Then Christ rose from the grave so we can rise into new life with Him, full and real LIFE!!! The “I” is washed away and now you live by faith in Christ who is one with you! How awesome is that?!?!?

I read verse 21 here and couldn’t help but think of this scene from Christmas vacation. Clark Griswold spends all day putting up Christmas lights, hitting every spot of the house, working like a wild man to make his house as beautiful and awesome as possible for his family to enjoy. He does all this work, everything is just perfect, then he goes to plug in the lights and what?!?! No power!!!

Watching Him run around clueless and so upset that after all that work he did it still wasn’t enough reminded me of me, or us really. We do all this work, dedicate ourselves to be better, to make our lights shine brighter than anything the world has ever seen so others can see God’s light shining through us. But just like Clark, we so often do all this work with no result. Just lights with no power.

In verse 21, it states clearly how completely wrong this legalistic, “do enough” mentality, leaning on the power we have zero of. It’s a waste of time. it’s like saying all this God did for us to send His Son to die on the cross for us, to give us new life, new strength and a new source of power is meaningless. The more we run off our power and trust in what we got, we are saying that the Gospel wasn’t enough, what Jesus did wasn’t enough. We forget so easily that without Christ, we have no power, we can do nothing. We can set the lights up all day but we can’t make them shine. Even though we are undeserving God made a way to have access to Him when there way no other way. He gives us complete access to His power to lean on and trust in because He knows we are lacking. If we could obey God, please Him by what we can do then what’s the point of Christ doing what He did? Zero.

So we can see that there is nothing, I mean NOTHING that we can do, but that’s okay. The Good News is even though we are undeserving of what Christ has done for us, although we are undeserving of having access to God’s power, He has given His Son up so that we can put our helpless striving behind and go directly to the source of the power. God’s awesome grace allows us to experience life in ways we could never do alone, it’s His power!!!

When Clark was out there freaking out because he couldn’t get the house to light up, have you been there? Feels like no matter how hard you try you just can’t get your lights to shine? Well preach the Gospel to yourself, stop striving and working, go straight to the source of your power, which is God and God alone!!! Then grab the extension chords of your life, the struggles, the problems you can’t seem to get past and go to the source. Bringing life’s hard times together with God as the source of your power, SHAZZAM!!!! LITTT!!!!!!! Preach the Gospel to yourself and go to the source!!!! Let’s light the world up guys!!! He’s given us plenty to do it!!!!!

God Gold of the Day

“Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the sight of all Israel, “Be strong and courageous, for you shall go with this people into the land that the Lord has sworn to their fathers to give them, and you shall put them in possession of it. It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”Deuteronomy 31:7-8

The gold today is an old gold that I had sent out awhile back! It’s from the time that these messages were being sent out just through text messages so if you see some “lol’s” then that’s why. It blows my mind how God uses lessons we learned with Him in the past to teach us today! Blows my mind too that these messages are being shared on such a bigger platform to many more people, proves so true that no matter how much things feel like we’ve “made it.” There is still so much room to learn and be taught by God through His Word because we never truly arrive or “make it” in this life, we just continue to grow and learn each day with God in this process of being made more like Christ. Pretty humbling for the reminder that these messages, the God Gold or anything I do in life isn’t because of me but it’s all God!!!!! I’ll let you read what 22 year old Jordan has to say before I mention anything else.

“I’ve always done this thing where I see verses like this, I see “be strong and courageous”, then I get all hype cause as the manly man I am I got that covered right? Nah not so much lol. I see that then try to attack life and all the struggles that come with it and for some reason it doesn’t always work. I wonder why it doesn’t and it’s really pretty simple. “I” try to be strong and courageous without HIM! That’s where verse 8 comes in, Moses didn’t just tell Joshua to be strong and courageous, pat him on the back and ride off into the sunset. He made sure Joshua knew where and who the source of his spiritual strength comes from. I notice I live out my life and try to overcome things majority of the time just off verse 7. I forget to keep reading, or reminding myself that my strength and courage come from the Lord. So when living life with both these verses in mind, things change, we overcome, we are capable of so much more! It’s super easy to draw off our own strength but what’s the point? We have a God that goes before us, that never leaves or forsakes us, a God of deliverance, a God that makes being strong and courageous so much easier than we can on our own! Idk bout you guys but my verse 7 only lifestyle usually doesn’t work out too well so let’s be strong, be courageous, and know that everything we have comes from a much higher power, a God that changes lives.”

Pretty awesome seeing not just verse 7, what sounds cool to us but seeing the verses together in the fullness of what God is saying to us. Like I said, I wrote that when I was 22 and I’m 24 now, geez I’m getting old. It’s crazy, learning this truth then doesn’t mean that I’ve lived strong and courageous, knowing my power comes from God not me for the last two years. I still seriously struggle with depending on God, letting go of what I have (which is nothing) and giving every piece of myself and life to God, depending on His strength over my own or anything of this world. I thank God for teaching me through some failures lately that no matter how hard I try, no matter how hard I work and give my best effort to be better or overcome tough situations, the prime time truth here is that I CAN’T!!!! The source of our power to be strong and courageous or do anything in life comes from God and God alone!!!

It’s so awesome to see how Moses doesn’t just tell Joshua to go be strong and courageous but then he lays the out the source of the power to live this strong and courageous life. Moses points to God, the source of their power then and the same God who is the source of our power now. God is showing us that He wouldn’t tell us to do something, be strong and courageous without also showing us that He has already given us everything we need and equipped us to do so by giving us a relationship with Him where at anytime we have access to draw from His power!

It’s this powerful truth right here, “ It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” You may say, well God says be strong and courageous but doesn’t show us how, He just shows us some stuff about Him, EXACTLY! To live strong and courageous lives in whatever tough circumstances we may face, the how comes through WHO and the WHO is God! It’s not something we do like, “Try this 10-step plan to be courageous and strong immediately today.” It’s not anything about us or what we do, this whole life is about God and what He can do, which is literally anything!!! Once we see these awesome promises about God, Who He is, and how He works before us, We realize we don’t need to keep trying with what we got and failing, living weak, insecure, fearful lives. We can put ourselves aside and place total dependence on God, move our faith from us and all these things, and place it in the God who is with us, who will never leave us but go before us, fighting our battles before we even know there’s a battle, who will never fail us but always so faithfully be there to supply our every need, allowing us to draw from His power, the source of power that brings change to lives. Changes the weak to strong, the fearful to courageous! Why would we ever look for power in other sources? The source of our power comes from the God who is right there with us ready to supply!

It’s not in “being” strong and courageous, it’s looking to the source of our power, God, the only One who can give us the power to live strong and courageous lives! Instead of ‘being” something you can’t be alone, BELIEVE, have faith in who God is and the power you have access to, He changes everything!
