While meditating on what to share with you today that will bless you tremendously, after few minutes of meditation, I heard a voice within saying “why don’t you write about sharing your weakness” immediately it dawn on me that I was once having challenge in a particular area which I have been struggling with over time, that even resort to me gathering enough resources I could and even source for some materials online which was helpful for some time and would surface later. I have kept it for long thinking that with time it would just disappear on its own accord but the more I wait the more it becomes more uncontrollable, even as a New Creation (though my spirit is renewed but my soul was not), so I tried all I could but to no avail.
I was listening to a teaching on sharing your weakness, after listening to that audio I spoke to a close friend about it not because he can solve the issue but so that God’s grace can flow in my area of weakness. From that moment I realized that it was gone (don’t think on what I might be struggling with, just read on), the day I shared it with that friend of mine, not that he has the perfect answer to it or knows the way, but His grace began to flow in that area (AM FREE!!!). You too can also be free from whatever challenges you might be going through, don’t rely on your senses like I did by wanting to read all the materials I could gather thinking that was a perfect idea, but the day I learnt on relying on Jesus’ finished work on the cross a change began to come.
Most believers today keep wondering, “Why am I doing this act, even now that I am a New Creation” don’t be surprise, like I said earlier, when you became Born Again your spirit becomes a new creature but your soul was not change, the only thing you can do right now is to renew your mind with the Word(see Rom 12: 1-2). Don’t hide your weakness but rather share it with a trusted friend, grace flows in that area and suddenly you see changes in your life. For every time you hide you fail to acknowledge that you need from God, you cannot see God’s provision of grace at work in you. Most believers today would always talk about their pluses always and not their minuses, am not saying you shouldn’t talk about your pluses, but the area you are trusting God for a change, don’t be ashamed to always talk about it so that God’s grace can flow in that area of weakness.
There are believers who have been struggling with a particular act for long time; they are still doing the merry go round, why? They are still trying to attain or overcome it by their own strength and strategies, which is equal to relying on your flesh, which will fail you. But when you concentrate on Jesus and His finished work on the cross, it gives you the empowerment to overcome it. Apart from renewing your mind with His Word so as to bring the body under control, share your weakness with a friend “am struggling in this area, but am trusting God for a change soon” Don’t hide it! Let it known so that His grace can flow on it, because His grace is always super abounding in every weak area of our life. Whenever the devil keeps attacking a particular area in your life, just know that God has already started something but he wants to discourage you from believing. His grace is always sufficient for you in every challenge you might be going through now, just rest on Him and let His grace flow, quit trying to do it yourselves and let His strength fall upon your weakness.
I would like you to carefully go through this Scripture 2Corith 12:7-10, if you think you have already, just do so again, God would be revealing to you things you knew not before. He has already nailed every challenge you might be going through on the cross and you don’t have that nature of sin anymore, all you need is to confess and believe it is settled and it will be.
