“….quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness (they) were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to fight the armies of the aliens. (Hebrews 11:34).
The saints of the Old Testament have done great things through their faith and you also can do such things through your faith (Hebrews 11th Chapter). Because, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Not only that. He is impartial and make use of you too.
It is true that your body is weak. It is true that your organs are made of flesh. They are not capable of resisting the sickness and diseases. But in this weak body, the faith brings in Godly strength. It keeps the body filled with the strength of high. The warriors of faith did not look at their weaknesses but with their eyes of faith leaned on the godly strength and stayed victorious. Only if you posses the Godly power you can resist satan. Only then you can defeat satan’s struggles.
The people of the world when they are weak, they generally think of which doctor to approach and which tonic will give relief. But for you believers, Christ is the doctor. Faith is the tonic God gives to you to get over your weaknesses. With faith you get power in the midst of your weaknesses.
Many get disheartened at the time of ill health. They murmur saying why God is allowing such weakness and diseases to reach out to them. They struggle being unable to fulfil their responsibilities both towards God and their families as well. But God did not call you to get disheartened, thinking of your weaknesses. He has identified you to be strong even in the midst of all weaknesses. Go through the verse I Corinthians 1:27. “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.”
Dear children of God, if you have any weakness make it a pride through your faith. What was the experience of Paul the Apostle? “….the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong (II Corinthians 12:9, 10). “Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants you have ordained strength, because of Your enemies, that you may silence the enemy and the avenger” (Psalm 8:2).
Dear children of God, these are the days in which you have to do great things to God. These are the days in which you have to break the walls of Jericho. These are the days for you to break all the hills which block you and through them into the sea. So, you need to get strengthened in God shedding all your weaknesses. Assert your strength.
To meditate: “For by you I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall.” (Psalm 18:29).
