For he was crucified in weakness, but lives by the power of God.
...but in dealing with you we will live with him by the power of God.
It is hard to find believers nowadays that will call God a weak and powerless God, but even where everyone affirms that God is a strong God, most are still dubious about their own strength.
Yes, God is a strong and almighty God, but that’s not where He left it at. Ephesians 5,1 even tells you that you are supposed to be an imitator of God, and other places say that you should be a representative/ambassador of God. So if you start thinking about it this way then you can see why God created you in His image.
So God is a STRONG God and since you are His representative, which is supposed to spread His kingdom, YOU should also be STRONG, in every area of your life!
Just think about what it would mean for you to be strong in every area. Strong in your marriage, strong in your body, strong in your health, strong in your Spirit, strong in love, strong in worship, strong in finances,… strong in everything you do.
You should see all these things in your life and you should strive to receive that power, for the potential to be STRONG in all areas is already within you, if you just make the choice to receive it by faith and remember who is on the inside of you and working through you.
God doesn’t want you to spread your kingdom of weakness and defeat by continuing to try to do things in your own ability. God wants His kingdom of POWER to be spread and therefore everyone can be strong, for God doesn’t expect you to do anything without Him giving you the required tools first!
Don’t stay a weakling any longer, instead become a representative of God, so that Gods power can manifest everywhere in YOUR life!
You serve a STRONG God and you were called to be an imitator of that same God!
YOU should be strong in every area of your life. Be it a strong marriage, a strong body, strong in finances, strong in health,…
Your weakness never glorifies or represents God, for He is not weak. Stop trying to spread the kingdom of your weakness, your inability and your failure, and instead start spreading the kingdom of God, by living in His strength, not your own! (2. Corinthians 13,3-6 & Ephesians 5,1)
