God Knows the Extent of Our Strength Better Than We Do of Ourselves
In life, we can witness to the fact that not one life is the exact same. Sure, there may be similarities, but not the same. We all come into circumstances and worlds, to which God has given us, based on the Purpose He had made us for, at the moment we were conceived in our mother’s wombs. God also gave us freewill to choose how we will deal with those circumstances.
In the Garden of Eden, Evil bulldozed its existence into the lives of Mankind, through its temptation to Adam & Eve. And when they chose to follow temptation, instead of resisting it; that is when our battle of choosing between good and evil, began. And this battle will continue till the last breath in our earthly bodies. The challenges and trials we face in life, serve many different purposes. And it is the perspective to which we view these trials and challenges, to which will allow for the power of the Divine Holy Father to enter within our lives. We keep wanting to restrict ourselves by the parameters of this world. The reality is that we were created to be spiritual beings, to be connected to the God who says, “He is not of the world’s ways, but beyond them.” And to not reshackle ourselves back with Evil; by restricting ourselves to the ways of this world, which are currently be dominated by Evil. Evil wants to restrict you to what you see and hear with the human eyes and ears; but God wants you to use what you see and hear with the human eyes and ears; and enhance it with the foundation of faith, that He put within all of us, upon the time we were conceived in our mother’s womb. We are always connected to God, we have the choice of tapping into that connection or not.
God doesn’t give up that easily. He has given us chances over and over again. What we have to realize is that God, Jehovah, Yahweh…..He loves us so much that He just literally sits there, and waits…and waits…for us to just talk to Him. While He talks to us everyday! How you ask? Well, let’s take a look:
1. He lets you wake up to another day to live.
2. Through the words or actions of love, of a child. Or for their very existence in your life.
3. Through the loving words of a parent.
4. Providing a roof over you head, food on your table, and clothes on your back.
5. Did someone let you go ahead of them in the shopping line?
6. Through the innocent gaze of a pet.
7. By the beautiful trees and flowers in nature.
8. With the birds chirping in the sky.
These are just a few things, out of the MANY that He tries to talk to us. But I think where He gets our attention the most is when we feel that the ways of this world, or the logic that we have within ourselves, fail us, in situations that seem to defy them; or have no solution in the earthly sense. But with a God who says He is beyond the world’s ways by our side, we can overcome! Maybe not in the way we intended or thought of…but while we endure, He gives us His Strength, to get through…and before we know it, it is over, and we look back to see what we overcame.
What we fail to realize is God created every inch, molecule, cell within us. He knows out of anyone, what we are capable of, and what we are not capable of. He knows our strengths, just as much as our weaknesses.God always provides what the world can not. He provides what we need in sufficient amounts, in the forms we need, to carry out His Purpose for our lives. We just have to trust in that. He knows the strength that we are capable of handling, better than we know ourselves.
What we fail to realize is that our earthly struggles are not the REAL struggles we are facing from day to day. It is the spiritual battle that we face from day to day. The earthly struggles are “the face” to the spiritual battle. As Man, we have tried to reason, intellectualize, and even rationalize Manmade solutions, to problems in humanity, that are driven by spiritual forces.
Through the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, God showed us what is needed to be done, in order to conquer evil, and to enter His Eternal Kingdom of Paradise. Jesus Christ, as the Son of God…showed us that it does not require earthly measures to serve the Father of Creation, but just being faithful in the everyday things to Him. It is the path we take that matters to God, not the end result alone. The faithfulness in the daily things, is where the healing begins, from the daily battles.
God knows our strength, but we have to make the choice to rely on Him to provide it for us. He knows what we have within ourselves better than we know ourselves. We just have to trust enough, for God’s Will to be fulfilled through us. Through God, we are capable of possessing such powerful strength, that can defy people who shackle themselves to the ways of this world; to the ways of evil. That is the Power of God’s Unconditional Love….a strength, that He has put within all of us, if we just decide to choose with our freewill, rely on Him.
