1 Timothy 1:12. Many of us find ourselves tired, weary, and weak from the many responsibilities that we have in life. We have to balance our families, careers, friends, every day chores, and finally our ministry work for God. With so much on our plates, it is easy to become overwhelmed and desperate for strength when we believe God has given us more than we can handle. Often, we feel that we are too weak and are not strong enough spiritually, physically, and/or mentally to attempt and achieve the work that God has planned for us. We use our weariness and weakness as an excuse to avoid taking risks for God and trying to do things for Him that are tough and out of our comfort zone. It is perfectly normal for us to feel that we are too weak and cannot accomplish the work God has for us on our own strength alone. If we can accomplish God's work for us by our own strength, without any help from Him, we are missing God's full will for us. God will give us more than we can bear because we need to realize our desperate need for Him. We must realize that we are nothing without Him and will never fulfill His will for us without His strength. If we were strong enough to do God's will for us, we would mistakenly think we are okay on our own without Him, but we need His strength to fully carry out His work for us. God will never give us work for Him without also providing us with the strength and energy we need to be successful. God is always with us, always providing us with strength, and equipping us with everything we need to fulfill His will. Thank God today for the strength that He gives you to do His extraordinary work!
