Top Tip for Becoming Mentally Stronger




Are we as Strong as we Think we Are?

For decades, I considered myself to be a powerful person. I’m not sure why that’s the case because I was often treated with disrespect, and I wasn’t financially successful. Truthfully, I had a variety of limitations, but I didn’t know it.

I have seen quite a few of those blockages lifted as I admitted my restrictions and allowed divine guidance into my life. My writing, teaching, and piano playing skills have multiplied. That’s only a partial list of previous weaknesses that are being strengthened.

Gideon


In Judges, chapter 6, we meet the young man, Gideon. He is addressed by an angel as a “mighty man of valour” (Judges 6:12 KJV) This astonishes Gideon because he is a poor, young farmer. He also points out the fact that Israel hasn’t been saved from the Midianites, yet. Gideon finally stops complaining when God says He will be with the young man, and help him to conquer the enemy. The fact that God was on his side quieted Gideon’s fears, as it should conquer ours.

What can God’s Strength do for Us?






My Conclusion

Some of us think we have power, and some of us don’t. In the end, however much control we claim, our all-powerful God has more. For instance, He can make mighty warriors out of intimidated, obscure young people. That’s why He’s in charge, and we’re not.
