Take a look at how far you have come! And here you are, panting a bit, stretched way beyond yesterday’s capacity but still holding on!
Stress is an actual physical force exerted on one thing by another. It is a spiritual, emotional and mental force straining us almost to the point of breaking. During that stretch, we must firmly fix our eyes on Jesus and watch to see what he is doing with our exertion.
And we can and must continue to hold on through what ever strains us…God says we can so can we must. Who wants to be the one person who acts like God isn’t able. He is able and that is the end of that discussion.
With his help, we will never break. When we are sure we are stretched to the limit, God is determined to move us to a higher level of trust in him.
Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,
(Ephesians 6:14, AMP)
Prayer- Lord, stretch us into that new mold…the one that looks just like you. Amen.
