Who Do You See?

23 Dec

When you see someone living strongly in the face of great adversity, do you admire that person for his/her inner strength?  What is the source of his/her strength?  What, or better Who, is the source of my strength?  You see, my will has been broken.  I want to quit.  Yet, God has left me here for a purpose, and that is to give glory to Him.  His Holy Spirit gives me the strength to get up on my feet and walk each day along the path He’s laid for me.  I have a wife and children who are depending on me to lead them as I follow Jesus.  So, I want you to see Jesus Christ working in me and through me for His glory and not my own.  Please don’t admire me, for I know who I am apart from Christ.

But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel; (Php 1:12)

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. (Php 2:13)

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Php 4:13)
