How To Become Strong When You Feel Vulnerable

My dear sisters & brothers, let us awaken and discern the signs of the times. Let us stop wasting energy fighting other humans. Instead, let us draw close to Jesus, looking into His face, and learning to love Him who is sovereign LORD of all creation.

These are dangerous times; we cannot afford to give way to fear. Please know, the choices we make based on fear in our effort to avoid danger – are sin.

I do not say this lightly, for I lived much of my life avoiding whatever felt dangerous. You and I have a high and holy calling to walk by faith, not by sight or by feelings.

Paul challenges, “be strong in the Lord and the power of His might.”

Sounds great. Yes?

I hear you ask, 

“How do I become strong, especially when I feel so vulnerable?”

Strength comes by daily putting on the whole armor of God. A crucial part of our armor is the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God.

My secret desire as a child was to become skilled with a sword. Do you know any swordsmen or women? It takes hours of regular practice to learn to hold their sword correctly and regular discipline to use it effectively.

It is the same with God’s Word. You and I have the most powerful sword in the Universe. If we only spend a couple of minutes reading the Bible – we will never be skilled in the art of using our sword, nor will we have a clue how to use it when confronted by danger.

If we only spend a couple of minutes reading the Bible – we will never be skilled in the art of using our sword.

A wonderful passage exalting God’s Word is Psalms 119.

I encourage you to read a portion every day this week – and meditate on the beauty and integrity of His words to you.

I pray you learn to use the sword of the Spirit. “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Heb 4:12).

God bless you and may you develop a deep love for His Word so you stand strong in Him.
