Jesus Calling: August 31

This reading speaks to me every year; actually I have it marked and read it many times through the year.  All of us have something that feels like a “weakness” to us.  Maybe these words will bless you today too.  

Grow strong in your weakness.  Some of My children I’ve gifted with abundant strength and stamina.  Others, like you, have received the humble gift of frailty.  Your fragility is not a punishment, nor does it indicate lack of faith.  On the contrary, weak ones like you must live by faith, depending on Me to get you through the day.  I am developing your ability to trust Me, to lean on Me, rather than on your understanding.  Your natural preference is to plan out your day, knowing what will happen when.  My preference is for you to depend on Me continually, trusting Me to guide you and strengthen you as needed.  This is how you grow strong in your weakness.  

James 4:13-15; Proverbs 3:5 (AMP); Isaiah 40:28-31
