“Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand.” Romans 14:4 NIV
I hope your week is going great! I hear in my Spirit that today’s post is for “the feeble heart.” To the one who is always doubting himself or herself. Questioning their worth and wondering how long before they falter (lose strength) again. Wondering how long before their weaknesses and past sins catch up with them yet again?
Reread the words in the bible verse above. Do you see God laying claim to this journey He has you on? “And you will stand, for the Lord is able to make you stand.”
It doesn’t matter how weak you feel. God’s truth is more powerful and more real than any feeling. You look at the boldness and charisma of everyone around you and you constantly feel as though you weren’t cut out for a life such as this. The label, “weakling,” comes to mind when you try to assess your strengths.
Let this be a firm reminder of who you really are. “For the Lord is able to make you stand, you WILL stand.” Your identity is tied into who God is and what He can do, not your own abilities or credentials. Remember He doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called. Romans 8:28-30. Timid and fearful as you may be. Wobbly legs, knots in stomach and all, God is calling you deeper right now at this moment.
“Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish.” Luke 5:4. You are completely capable, because God says so. You can step out of your familiar place and still thrive, because God says so. You can confidently be the odd one out, because God says so. You can speak up and take action, because God says so.
“Stop being so afraid, my child.
Take hold of my hand.
It’s time to fly.”
“But now, this is what the LORD says– he who created you, [your name], he who formed you, [your name]: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.” Isaiah 43:1
To the faint heart, God is on your side. You are strong in Him. Declare this over and over. Spend time in His word, renewing your mind, casting down the lies and false imaginations that the devil tries so desperately for you to believe 2 Corinthians 10:5. Draw near to God and you will see Him evident in your story – strengthening your feeble bones, sharpening your fragile heart.
Stay blessed and a blessing,
