Our Flexing God


"There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men" (1 Cor.12:4-6).

Both as individuals and congregations, we will frequently come up against obstacles that seem to be beyond our abilities to cope with. Maybe its time to meditate upon a very important aspect of being God's people.... We have a flexing God... What an awesome thought it is to know that God is there and that He is powerful. I know that I cannot capsulate it any better than the apostle Paul did with these famous words... "I can do everything through Him who gives me strength" (Phil.4:13). We must constantly pinch ourselves in reminder that God has an inexhaustible supply of everything we need to live a life of joy and productivity... Fears about our lives, health, temptations, material stuff or anxiety are all best handled when we include God's great strength in our plans. God cares and He will help us... He will help us to accomplish things that we might think are beyond our scope. God even knows how we feel, and His might needs to be relied upon. God's strength shines through the brightest during our times of greatest need and apparent weakness. As we all go through our day today, lets remember that God is ready and willing to flex for us. That flexion includes the power to help us to not only get through the day, but to thrive in it... "The Lord is my strength and my shield; and my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song" (Psa.28:7).

Have a great day.... Make your little part of the world better... Love mark Phil.4:11
