Strength in Weakness
“I will seek what was lost and bring back what was driven away, bind up the broken and strengthen what was sick.” Ezekiel 34:16
Do you feel like you fit into one of these categories today – lost, driven out, broken or sick? God majors in finding what’s lost, bringing back what’s been cast out, restoring what’s been broken and healing what’s sick. Now doesn’t that just make you take a deep breath? No matter what state we’re in today, we are never too far out that His loving arms cannot rescue us or His skillful hands mend or bring healing. Are you seeking purpose down in your soul? Do you for some reason this day feel driven out by family or friends? What circumstance or news has come into your life that has broken your heart? What area of your life – physically, emotionally or spiritually – is sick? God promises to be our strength in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9) and a bruised reed He will not break (Isaiah 42:3). He knows our frame and remembers that we are dust (Psalm 103:14). Whatever situation you find yourself in at present, He sees you and is willing to act on your behalf (2 Chronicles 16:9). Would you invite Him right now into your sickness, brokenness, isolation or confusion?
