Hebrews 12: 12-13
Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed. Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord.
We all have days when we feel feeble and weak, and we wonder if our feet can walk the path God has chosen for us. These are the days when we may not want to praise the Lord for His many blessings and His sacrifice for our life. However, this is exactly the time when we need to rise up above the weakness and raise our hands in praise. when we need to walk to the Word of God, open the pages and sing to Him for His help as He is the Hope that we need in our feebleness.
Through His word we need to bind the thoughts of weakness and feebleness and loose the Spirit of Hope.
Many are saying of me, "God will not deliver him." "Selah" But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. "Selah" I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me. I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side.
It is only God who can help us in these times. The sly breaths of doubt will tempt us to stay away from God's word, take our limp hands and tell us that we are beaten. This lie will lead us away from God's Truth, make us feel weak and feeble like Job's lament "I cry to you, O God, but you don't answer. I stand before you, but you don't even look." To this we must cry out the Victory hymn.
Father God, may we see through the eyes of the Holy Spirit and be the Love that Jesus is, to ourselves and others, so that we may be the Hopeful people of Easter. Amen
