Even the strongest people get tired at times, but God’s love for us, His power and His strength never diminish. He is never too preoccupied or too busy to help and listen. Remember, the word says that when we are weak that is when He is made strong. So in turn, His strength is the source of our strength. It is imperative however, that we look to the root of the problem. A lot of times when we are going through, the tasks and responsibility that we are carrying can become overwhelming because we are trying to do it alone. God never intended for it to be this way. He didn’t bless us with a family or job or simply life in general for us to think that we had to bear the load all by ourselves. He is here to help. God knows you have bills that need to be paid, He knows your children need to eat every day. We have to pray and talk to God being completely open and honest. Doing so opens up the opportunity for Him to come in and provide the help that we need. He already knows our mind-set but we must recognize it then ask that He take those feelings away and replace them with peace and assurance.
I have to point out one additional point, even though God never intended for us to have to carry the weight of life on our own we have to discern how important decisions are. A decision is defined as a conclusion or resolution reached after consideration. Decisions in life have a direct impact on life. If you spend your rent money on a new outfit, then you can’t turn around pray and ask God to bless you with a roof over your head. He already did that, you just messed up with what He gave you and did what you wanted to do. I said all of that to say this, yes God is here to help us we just have to be responsible and be good stewards over what we have.
Don’t get it twisted my friends, God is our source. Just because you get a paycheck from your job every month, does not make them your source. Our Heavenly Father promises to lead us, never leave us and He will never, ever come short of His word. If you feel as though everything is going wrong and you can’t make it any further, look to THE source and trust that He’s already working things out for your good. You are not alone, so stop trying to do everything on your own. #iDeclare #stoptryingtodoitonyourown
Heavenly Father, I come asking that you please forgive me for trying to do everything on my own. I decree and declare right now that You are my source and I will never ever depend on anything in this world to provide all my needs. I will be a good steward over everything that you bless me with. Thank you for reminding me that I do not have to live this life alone, no matter who is or isn’t around me. In Jesus name, Amen.
Psalms 23 NLT “The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. Even when I walk
through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings. Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord
