Weak but strong

“I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.” Revelation 3:8.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible study: Ezekiel 4-7, and Revelation 3.

God knows us.

When we pretend to be something we aren’t, we are deceiving ourselves not God.

God sees our weaknesses and when we see them as well we are in a good place.

God is always ready to help the needy.  Let that roll around in your head a while.  Each of us should be desperate to have God’s help.  What causes His help to be unavailable?  Lack of neediness.

The folks referenced in this verse were known weaklings yet they were loved by God.  Why?  Because even in their neediness, they did what He wanted to the best of their ability.

I must be intent on using whatever God has given me to His fullest potential.  God can do the math.  Recall the story of the widow and her mite.  Jesus commented on the percentage of her gift not the amount.

I have a part to play in God’s Kingdom.  Whether my “role” is significant (by the world’s standards) or not, I must be all-in when executing it.

“Lord, I need You every second.  I am unworthy.  I have so often cheated You by doing less than my best.  Forgive me.  I surrender everything to You.  Guide me with what I have so that I please You with it, I beg.”

Our weakness does not excuse us from contributing to His Word.
