I am strong

The devil torments us all and fills our heads with lies about what he perceives us to be. Instead of listening to him and allowing him to defeat me, I want to focus on the positive affirmations of my Lord, and who I am in Him.

I am strong.

Even though this statement is true, I don’t always feel the truth of it in my life. More often than not, I feel weak and broken. I try so hard and yet, at times, I feel as if my life is a mess. Sometimes I just want to give up.

I want to quit. And declare my own defeat. Because that how my life feels at times—defeated. But, in the midst of my sorrow and pain, I always manage to keep going. God is my strength. He might allow me to get knocked down, but He won’t let me stay down. When I am lying on the bathroom floor sobbing, feeling defeated and scared, He reminds me of our previous battles. God has been victorious in every single one.

I love it when He gives me the proof that I am strong in Him. God lives in me. Therefore, He is my strength.

Isaiah 41:10 (KJV)
10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Exodus 15:2 (KJV)
2 The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

2 Corinthians 12:9 (KJV)
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

The enemy has never been able to defeat my Lord. Therefore, I want to rely on the great strength of my Lord. He can help me to make the impossible things in my life possible.
