Life, guaranteed, at some point, brings pain, sorrow, difficulties, the seemingly endless struggles, and issues, problems that now and again seem overwhelming. Those seasons that appears to have no end, a dry and barren place. But in the poverty (lack, inability, inhibitions) is the opportunity for God’s generosity to shine through. Oh he knows each fallen piece of our lives. He meets us, his only condition, is to love him, praise him, and meet with him with a pure heart – not sometimes, but daily! Go to him with empty hands – lift your hands up, as you raise your heart to His. Release the worry; break the cycle of trying and doing.
But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead 1 Peter 1:3 NLT
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 1 Corinthians 12:9-10 NIV
