It’s FRIDAY!! Time for Five Minute Friday. Don’t forget to check out the link-up.
Today’s word: MIGHTY.
Mighty. Having great strength or power, especially for one’s size.
Mighty. Like that boy named David who goes out to defeat the giant Goliath.
Or like the little boy who battles cancer.
Or the little girl who fights for survival in a house of shame and secrets and lies.
Great strength or power. Especially for one’s size.
It is GOD’s great strength AND power in me that makes me mighty.
My own strength gets me nowhere. David knew he had God with him. But I think he also knew he had God WITHIN him. He tapped into THAT strength, and the giant went down.
The thing is, David didn’t even have to be strong on his own. And yet, so often I think I do.
I think my might comes from me. I have to be strong enough.
But that’s not God’s expectation. God’s expectation is that I am actually not so strong. But He wants to BE MY STRENGTH.
David was a little boy with a rock.
But our might isn’t in the rock. It is in He who is within us… the ROCK.
It’s HIM who is mighty. And it’s HIM who makes me MIGHTY.
