7.” I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9)NIV
Just like Paul had a thorn in his flesh and pleaded with God to take it out , you too may be dealing with a thorn and pleading for God to take it away. You keep making mistakes, and you feel hopeless. You feel like you keep letting God down, but let me encourage you my brother, my sister for just a moment; GET UP, DUST YOURSELF OFF, AND MOVE FORWARD IN JESUS NAME! keep moving forward in the love of Jesus Christ because no matter what your weakness is and how much Satan tries to get in your ear to torment you you’re still STRONG! 2 Corinthians 12:10 declares “That is why, for Christ’s sake, i delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when i am weak, then i am strong.” THERE IT IS! Even though you’re in the midst of battling in a area of weakness, YOU’RE STILL STRONG! Satan may think he’s doing something by tormenting you and striking those weak areas in your life, but I’m here to tell you just like Jesus told Paul “Jesus grace is sufficient for you, and his power is made perfect in weakness.” You’re going to overcome that weak area in your life, whatever it may be, not because of your own strength, but because of the grace of God. God’s grace is enough to cover that weak area, his grace is enough to see you through and to help you get over that hurdle!
Speaking of hurdles, let me give you a quick revelation!
I’ve never seen a track star get up and run off the track after they’ve fallen over a hurdle. instead they take notice of the miscalculated jump, and they learn from it, so that next time they’ll have enough momentum to hop over the next hurdle successfully. So in the same manner i ignite a fire in you to get up and hop over your hurdle. Yea you may have fallen but get up, dust yourself off and get enough momentum. You can do this. Greater is HE that is in YOU. You’re VICTORIOUS!
Purpose: This message is for the captives to be set free. Set free from the bondage of feeling unworthy, useless, not good enough, etc. My sole purpose is to help you realize just how precious you are to God, The Almighty Creator, The Alpha & Omega, YHWH.
13. ” For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my Mother’s womb. 14. I praise you because i am fearfully & wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, i know that full well. 15. My frame was not hidden from you when i was made in the secret place, when i was woven together in the depths of the Earth. 16. Your eyes saw my unformed body; All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 17. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! (Psalms 139: 13-17)
God really took his time when he created you. can you believe it? you can’t believe it? WELL BELIEVE IT!! because it’s true. You weren’t a microwave project; only taking 2-3 minutes to complete, you were crafted skillfully. A Creator who makes no mistakes created you, and since God doesn’t make mistakes; guess what that means? YOU’RE NOT A MISTAKE. I don’t care what your Mom, Dad, Friend, or even the school bully said about you. God intentionally created you, he did it on purpose. because he knew that you would serve a purpose on this Earth. (did you catch that? i’ll say it again) He created YOU ON PURPOSE because he knew that you would SERVE A PURPOSE ON THIS EARTH. A purpose to do good in this land and complete his will for your life.
Many times i would recite this verse whenever i needed reassurance of just how special i was to God, and that in fact he created me without any regrets. Two words that stood out to me in Psalms 139:13-15 were “Knit” & “Woven”. You can compare those two words to the activity of Crocheting. When a Crocheter chooses to Crochet something, they’re expecting their masterpiece to serve a purpose; Whether that work of art serves a purpose to be a blanket, hat, or scarf, & the list goes on. People who crochet put 100% time and effort into their work. They take their time to master the work. Interlinking the different patterns to create compatible patterns & color schemes. God was OUR personal crocheter. During those 9 months of being in the womb, God was Certainly knitting and woven a masterpiece together, and that masterpiece was YOU! Continue reading
