I Am Weak and God Knows
Share This Devotional
A few weeks ago, I talked with a friend about the Women's Day demonstrations in Mexico. Without a doubt, they are a series of controversial and often very violent events in my country. Unfortunately, it becomes more of a show of forces instead of a request for recognition of rights, which should be noted, that God granted many centuries ago.
The world has made us believe that being weak is bad, and even more so, being a woman and being weak can seem worse. That is why, lately, we have seen so many social movements that want to "empower" women, losing sight of God´s original plan that is different, in a good way. In the eyes of God, women are just as valuable, created with a special purpose because that is His plan.says,
“…There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
So, thinking that I am weaker (physically) is not something that affects me; instead, I try every day to remember that God has endowed me with the ability to say no to what is wrong and say yes to what is right. Therefore, I live my life consciously for His glory. Satan is the master of manipulation, and he knows that if he succeeds in diverting my thoughts, in time, he will succeed in diverting my life. So, with determination, I submit my mind to that of Christ so that all my thoughts have His touch. I often do an exercise of sincerity before God and ask him to examine me and show me what I must do and I would like to share it with you.
Put the Word of God into practice. In the long run, your entire life will be strengthened in God and you will not depend on your own strength. Everything we have and everything we are comes from Him, so let us take hold of Him who created the heavens and the earth, to fulfill with determination everything He has commanded us.
For me, I realize that everything I live for is God, by God, and for God. He created me, and I surround myself with more people with the same mission: to spread the Glory of God on this earth and that is why I serve so gratefully at CBN. From a telephone, we can do missions, we can also be the hands of God with every help that we deliver, and we are the voice of God in every word of encouragement that our partners share. What a privilege to be considered for the perfect work of God and yet be weak.
I gladly accept that I am weak, that I am not in control of anything, and I pray God would allow me to see Him work. So, let us strengthen ourselves in the great power of God, because the Lord will accompany us wherever we go. In his Word, Jesus promises:
“All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out and find pasture” ().
His power is evident in my weakness, so anyone of us can gladly say now: I am weak, and God knows it!
