Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

in my weakness

Yesterday we looked at Isaiah 40:28. Today we will look at verse 29

“He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.” Verse 29

In my weakness, He is strong. (2 Cor 12:9) I can’t do it on our own. God never intended for me  to do it on my own. He is an ever present help. (Psalm 46:1)

I have seen first hand God working through my weakness. The temptation to quit, to give in to the pain, or to allow the pain to dictate what I would or would not do seemed to always be lurking in the shadows. This is why it is so important that we take control over our feelings and not allow our feelings to control us.

“Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything.” 1John 3:20 NLT

Don’t allow guilt to control you either. If there is something you need to confess to God, do it. “Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10 NASB

When I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Cor 12:10)

psalm 23:3

No matter which translation you use Psalms 23:3 is powerful!

psalm 23 3

Thank you, Father, that You refresh my life! On difficult days, You give me new strength. When my world seems to be upside down, You restore order. When I am struggling to breathe, You let me catch my breath while You renew my strength. With a heart filled with gratitude, I worship You!

run? walk? weak?

My own strength is insufficient to deal with the many situations that I face. God never intended for you or me to operate out of our own strength. In fact, many times scripture reminds us that God is our refuge and our strength.

“He gives power to the tired and worn out, and strength to the weak… But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:29, 31 TLB)


“The Lord God is my strength,
And He has made my feet like hinds’ feet,
And makes me walk on my high places.” (Habakkuk 3:19 NASB)


There are times when God pours into us strength in abundance and we seem to run the race before us. (Hebrews 12:1) There are other times when God give us strength bit by bit so that we can walk in His statutes (Lev 26:3) and walk in love (Eph 5:2) leaning on Him every step of the way.

One thing is for certain, He will give us the strength we need when we need it. He is in control and He is for us. (Psalm 118:6)

So as you face situations that seem daunting, trials that seem to never end, heartache, or health issues remember where your strength comes from. Spend time today talking with God and casting your cares. (1 Peter 5:7)

In my weakness, He is strong!
