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

There are moments in your walk with God when you do feel weak and when you do feel inadequate. These are moment which can affect everyone; furthermore these are moments when you can change the whole course of your ship by speaking His life-changing words into and over your life.

Within our text for today, God is calling you to speak His life-changing words over your life to change your circumstances. Notice if you will, the Bible does not say, “Let the weak say, ‘I am weak.’” But is says, “Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’” The Bible is not telling you to live in denial about how you feel, or to dwell in defeat, but it is telling you that there is better way to live; it is telling you to believe in His word by faith, and to speak His life-changing words to your soul which will build you up and strengthen you in God, to be victorious.

The Bible says in Jude 1:20 (NIV), “But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit.” Pray and speak God-inspired words through the Holy Spirit into your life and build yourself up in God.

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 goes on to say 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 in his word. Let the word of God become in you a powerful overcoming force, let it prevail and win over everything.

At first, the seed of God’s words might seem so small, while the mountains which stand against you roar at you, “You will never get healed, you can’t overcome, and you will never make it.” Then, as the ever-living seed of God’s word grows and grows, it becomes bigger than all (Mark 4:32). Keep confessing and believing in faith, “I am strong in the Lord and the power of his might!” Day after day and week after week, the mountain will get smaller and smaller as the word of God in you grows bigger and bigger, so big, in fact, it will overcome and it will prevail against everything. The word of God will roar mightily from within you, “By the stripes of Jesus I am healed, I am an overcomer, I am more than a conqueror, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, I am strong in the Lord and power of His might!”

Our text for today says in Joel 3:10 (NIV), “Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’” This mighty life-changing verse of Scripture goes against human logic, but God’s wisdom is greater than man’s human logic. It is time to think outside the human box, and see things from a different level, the level of a heavenly perspective, the God-kind of level in faith. Will you take His living words and let them grow and build you up in God?

M friend, speak His words over every circumstance in your life with the anointing of the Holy Spirit, and turn every situation around, from the negative influences of the world to the powerful life-empowering, heavenly-centred, victoriously living and radically changing, positive promises of God. Your words are powerful, for the Bible says in Proverbs 18:21 (NIV), “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” You can change your life by changing the confession from your mouth and being Christ-centred in your walk with God. So, today, you can say with a greater boldness and confidence, “I am strong in the Lord and the power of His might.” Even though you feel weak, go to God with His words 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,’” so let your words, which I speak today in faith and under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, change my life, let them build me up and strengthen me in you today. Thank you Lord.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
