Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional September 30, 2017
Topic: Where You Are Weak, He Is Strong
Key Verse: For this reason also [because He obeyed and so completely humbled Himself], God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow [in submission], of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess and openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord (sovereign God), to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:9-11 (AMP)
MESSAGE: Weak or strong? If you had to pick one of those words to describe yourself, which one would it be? I think most of us would probably say, “weak.” But did you know that we don’t have to remain defeated by our weaknesses?
The only way to overcome your weakness is to rely on God’s strength. To do that, you have to stop focusing on your weaknesses. You cannot look at everything you are not. You must look at everything God is. Focus on His strength and all He is willing to do for you.
The weaknesses of the world are not your inheritance. Jesus did not come to earth, die on the cross, and rise again on the third day for you to be weak and defeated. He went through all that to give you an inheritance—authority in this life—and His strength to rule over your circumstances.
Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional Messages: The Tremendous Power In The Name of Jesus
In any area where you stumble, God is ready and willing to provide you with His strength. So the next time you find yourself confronted by your weakness, remember and declare that when you are weak, He is strong!
PRAYER: God, I declare and confess that when I am weak, You are strong. So I will not worry about, or remain defeated by, my weakness. Instead, I put my faith in Your strength.
