We Don't Need To Be Strong For God To Use Us

I recently read the story of Gideon in the bible and was encouraged by how he was the smallest and the weakest in his family but God still used him for his glory. Although I may be weak, God can still use me in little and big ways for his good.

God knows how much we are able to do, and would never ask us to do something that we are not able/not well enough to do. God told Gideon to go with the strength he had, and he would supply him with any more strength that he needed. Sure enough, Gideon defeated the Mideonites, which is what God asked him to do.

It is so encouraging to know that even people suffering with very severe disabilities can be used by God, and that he will help us to do the things that he asks us to do.

God Does Help Us In Times Of Need

Sorry that I haven't written for a while; I had a busy beginning of half-term then I was ill towards the end of it.

As I said, towards the end of half-term I had a cold. Usually I am ok-ish on the first day then have a terrible nights sleep which results in the cold worsening. Cold’s usually knock me back quite a bit, so I was really disappointed when I came down with one.

We really prayed that I would get a good nights sleep that night, and I did! Better still, I woke up at 5am that morning feeling wide awake, it was virtually impossible that I would get back to sleep. But nothing is impossible for God and after I prayed that I would get back to sleep, I did almost straight away!!!

The sneezing went away and God helped my body to fight the cold, and by yesterday I was completely better!

It isn’t always God’s will to heal us from viruses, but he is totally capable of doing so if he wants to! He does help us in times of need!
