“Strong!”

I have a one-year old pamangkin. Syempre kapag one-year old na ang isang bata, marami na silang alam na gawin. And isa sa mga pinakagusto at cute na cute akong ginagawa ng pamangkin ko, yung kapag sinabi mo sa kanya na “Strong!”, manggigigil siya at ipapakita niya talaga na strong siya. This week nakita ko na naman siyang ginagawa niya yun but from this time, God ministered to me through her…

Na when God says “Be strong.”, let’s be strong.  

Yes, we believe in God, we trust God, but sometimes kapag andun na tayo sa moment na yung nararanasan natin is something beyond our control, ang hirap magpakalakas. ang hirap maging malakas. There are times in our lives na hindi na tayo makapagdepend sa family, friends, finances natin. Nagfafall na rin yung strength, wisdom, joy and peace inside us. Hindi mo na alam kung saan ka tatakbo. Sasandal. Magpapahinga.

Kapag dumating ka sa point ng life mo na …

   strong

We can imitate the faith and heart of Paul.

That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. 

For when I am weak, then I am strong.

-2 Corinthians 12:10

0131g

Paul delights. Maybe para kasi sa kanya, “Ui weakness ‘to, okay lang kasi mas makikilala ko si Jesus!”, “May hardships, okay lang kasi mas maeexperience ko si Jesus!”, “Yes, may difficulties ako ngayon, pero okay lang, mas makikita ko yung glory ni Jesus sa buhay ko!”

Instead of focusing on his problem, Paul focused on Someone strong and constant.

He fixed his eyes on God.

Blessing nga yan e. Yung kayong dalawa na lang ni Jesus. That was the sweetest scene that could ever happen in your life. Dun mo malalaman na si Jesus pa rin yung reason kung bakit ka pa rin nabubuhay at hindi sumusuko sa gitna ng lahat.

“anything that brings you to your knees is a BLESSING

because life is designed to help us come to

a one-on-one encounter with Jesus.”

Kapag yung relationship mo na lang with Jesus yung natitirang malakas na area ng buhay mo, that’s enough!

God is enough! He is enough!  

He will not just give us strength but He is our strength.

God is the strength of our lives. 

God will be the One to sustain us. He will be the One who will keep us to press on, move forward and fight the good fight of the faith because He is the Strength. 

Be Strong, Child of God.
