In my prayer time this morning I was struck but how much I need the strength that God provides. My life and all that I would like it to be is so very fragile. One stupid mistake, one wrong action and it could all come crashing down.
This post is not some major confession. Obviously, I recognise my sins and that I need to receive the forgiveness of God every day. I am so grateful that He says that ‘If we confess our sins He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins.’ Forgiveness is not weakness. It provides me with a strength to move forward in the things of God and not repeat the past.
I want to become less fragile. If breakthrough is coming, then change is coming. My fragility will determine how well I process that change. Am I ready for it? How can I become less fragile in my walk with God? After all, I do not want to crash and burn at the first sign of trouble.
Am I too quick to let go offthe principles of faith? Do I have strong spiritual disciplines that despite what may be happening in my life, will still remain? PRAYER – FASTING – READING THE WORD – CHURCH – TITHING. I am discovering that when these are set strong, my life is less fragile. Better to be planted, rooted in God…then my life has every opportunity to flourish, to yield fruit in season and to prosper.
This kind of life does not happen by chance. The default mode for most is a fragile life. In this time of believing I pray for strength, tenacity, some persistent determination.
