Strong in Grace

“You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.”

‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭2:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬


What does it mean to be strong in grace?

It means that you understand and admit that your flesh is weak and recognizing that it was, is and will always be weak. It is flesh. It will always fail.

The more you are able to readily embrace the truth that you will never be strong enough in your flesh, the more you can embrace the reality that you need God.

And when you readily embrace God and His help in every area of your life- you are learning to be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

We perceive weakness as a failure, God perceives it as the reality of the flesh.

Jesus does not ask you to make your flesh stronger. He asks you to make your dependence on Him deeper.

What are you depending on Jesus for today?

The Key to Victory

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:29‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Real strength doesn’t come from pretending you have it but in admitting that you don’t.

Real power comes from knowing you can’t do this on your own and that you need help.

Needing Jesus every day is not admitting defeat.

It is the key to victory.
