Topic: ATTRACTING GOD TO OUR WEAKNESSES

Bible Reading: Acts 14:8-10

📖8….”And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked:
📖9….The same heard Paul speak: who steadfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed,
📖10….Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.”

Message:

🔥If our weaknesses are used by God as the raw materials to build us up, then we need to draw closer to God for Him to see our weaknesses. If we are not close to him, He cannot be attracted to our weaknesses. Even though he is omniscient, he doesn’t impose himself upon man. He does only what man has asked him to do, or what he sees that is bad in the man who lives by faith, and has allowed Him (God), to live in him. For our weaknesses to be useful to God, we must therefore, draw close to him like the impotent man at Lystra who attended Paul’s crusade in Acts 14:8-10.

🔥🔥To be close to God, is to depend on him totally. Not by offering lips services (Matt 15:8), but by giving and offering prayer services, to create the law of solid ground in the human and divine relationship as Cornelius did in Acts 10:1-2. This is the law of trust. It shows that the weakness God responds to, is that which produces a sense of dependence on Him. Psalms 63:1 and 84:2 show that David had his weaknesses converted to strength by God because he depended on God prayerfully.

🔥🔥🔥The attitude of dependence upon God, attracts his attention and draws him to us. This makes Him to manifest His power through us. Especially if we do, and say only what the word of God says, and asks us to do… Philippians 4:13. Once we speak only the word of God, we will no longer be discouraged because God doesn’t use discouraged servants… 1 Kgs 19:13-16. Discouragement attracts self-pity, self-hatred, and even makes us to search for the understanding of our problems. Once you become sure of your inner problems, inferiority complex steps in, and God is rejected as our strength. Beloveth, Psalm 27:1 says once you accept the Lord as your strength, he will show himself strong on your behalf.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏Precious Redeemer, as I draw close to you by my faith in you, may my weaknesses stand you still like blind Bartimaeus and the woman with the issue of blood, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏Heavenly Father, convert my heart services in prayers, into avenues of divine connection, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏Dependable Father, be with my mouth as you were with Moses’ mouth, so that my faith will always be represented by my speeches in Jesus’ name.
