Strengthened in Weakness

Hebrews 11:34... out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle...

When you read the word "strength" what comes into your mind?  Most of us don't associate weakness with strength. Weakness is the state or condition of lacking strength. However in the Bible we read of  men and women who were made strong in spite of weakness. Many faced obstacles and trials that could have easily crippled them, and yet they emerged victorious. What made them strong you ask? It was their faith God. Perhaps this evening you are feeling weakened in areas of your life. You realize that you don't have the strength in and of yourself to overcome and keep moving forward. Do not be discouraged there is strength in Christ. Trust in the Lord and look to Him to be your strength. He has promised that the same power that raised Christ from the dead is available to us.(Rom.8:11) Ask the Lord for a fresh empowering of His Spirit right now. Then allow Him to strengthen you for the battle ahead.
