Joel 3:10 (NIV) Let the weak say, “I am strong.”

Joel 3:10 (NIV) Let the weak say, “I am strong.”

There are moments in our walk with God that we do feel weak; we feel inadequate. But here, God is calling us to speak his word over our lives, to, as the Bible says Jude 1:20 (NIV) “But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Also the Bible says in Hosea 14:2 (NIV) “Take my words with you.” Let the seed of God’s word grow within you. The Bible says in Acts 19:20 (KJV) “So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.” Let the word of God grow inside of you; water it every day in prayer.  Spend time with God with his word. Let the word of God become in you an overcoming force. Let it prevail and win over everything.

At first the seed of God’s words might seem so small, while the mountains that stand against you, roar at you, “You will never get healed, you can’t overcome.” Then, as that seed of God’s word grows and grows, it becomes bigger than all (Mark 4 v 32). Keep saying in faith, “I am strong in the Lord and the power of his might!” Week by week, and then day by day, that mountain will get smaller and smaller as the word of God in you grows bigger and bigger, that it will overcome! It will prevail! The word of God will roar mightily, “By the stripes of Jesus I am healed, I am an over-comer!”

Let the weak say, “I am strong.”

It goes against human logic to say that statement from God. But let us think outside the human box, and see things at a different level, the level of heaven, the God-kind of level in faith.  We take his words, we let them grow and build ourselves up in him.

M friend, let us say with such a strong boldness and confidence, “We are strong in him always.” Even though we feel weak, we go to God and do as the Bible says in Isaiah 43:26 (KJV) “Put me in remembrance.” Lord, your word says, “Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.'” Let your word strengthen me today and build me up in you. Thank you Lord. 

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
