When You are Weak, He is Strong


As Christians, we can rely daily on the strength of the Lord to bring us through hard times.

In the Bible we see this time and time again—whether it was Daniel, Mary, or Paul—all followers of God have fearlessly sought his calming, loving, and uplifting spirit, and have seen God as a constant stronghold in their lives.

Reflecting on God’s amazing love encourages us to rely fully on the strength of God, knowing that he will be there for us in any circumstance.

Here are five passages to reflect on, as you seek after God’s strength:

Deuteronomy 3:16 — “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

Isaiah 40:29-31 — “He gives power to the faint,  and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

Psalm 23:4 — “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 — “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

Ephesians 6:10-13 — “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. ”


Keep learning about God’s strength with four ebooks by Stever Farrar all about God’s strength for 99 cents each through September 30:

Real Valor: A Charge to Nurture and Protect Your FamilyReal Valor takes a look at the life of Boaz, and shows how Boaz is an example of true biblical manhood and Farrar contrasts his story with cultures definition of masculinity.

True Courage—True Courage recounts God’s nature to love and provide incredible courage to us in the midst of uncertainty.

God BuiltGod Built is all about the world’s desperate need of bold, passionate men of integrity, and the ways in which they’re built, shaped, and formed by God.

Today We Remember: September 11, 2001

We Will Never Forget

Today we pause in remembrance of September 11, 2001, and the thousands who lost their lives in the tragic events at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the field in Pennsylvania. We will never forget what was lost that day.

As we mourn this day in history, may we also remember and pay respects to the civilians, firefighters, police officers, and first responders at the site of the attacks who displayed incredible courage and compassion.

In times of tragedy, suffering, chaos, and mourning, God is still faithful and the ultimate place to find peace and comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 says that God, “. . . comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

I encourage you to take a moment today to pray for comfort for those affected by the events of September 11, 2001, wisdom for our world’s leaders, and for God’s peace on earth.

Today we remember.

10 Powerful Verses from Romans


Get James Montgomery Boice’s To the Glory of God: A 40-Day Devotional on the Book of Romans.

The book of Romans has the power to change lives! This was seen in the life of Augustine, John Calvin, and even pastor James Boice’s understanding of the scriptures. The insights he found in Romans inspired him to preach an eight-year sermon series on the book of Romans.

In Romans the Apostle Paul clearly defines and shows how all scriptures points to Christ, his death, and resurrection. He exposes sinfulness for what it is, reveals the glory, goodness and righteousness of God, and demonstrates the importance of walking daily with the Lord!

We pulled together a list of 10 verses to help you see the encouragement, understanding and truth that Paul taught throughout the book of Romans.

10 Powerful Verses from Romans

Romans 1:16 – “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”

Romans 2:6-8 – “He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, He will give eternal life; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.”

Romans 3:23-24 – “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by His grace a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.”

Romans 4:7-8 – “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin.”

Romans 5:6 – “For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.”

Romans 6:1-2, 7 – “What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? For one who has died has been set free from sin.”

Romans 7:18-20 – “For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.”

Romans 8:18 “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed in us.”

Romans 10:1 – “Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved.”

Romans 12:9-10 – “Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.”

John Bevere and his wife Lisa are the founders of Messenger International, an organization established to help individuals, families, churches, and nations realize and experience the transforming power of God’s Word.

A minister and best-selling author, John delivers messages of uncompromising truth with boldness and passion. In John’s latest ebook, Good or God, John invites readers to engage with God on a new level:

“These days the terms good and God seem synonymous. We believe what’s generally accepted as good must be in line with God’s will. Generosity, humility, justice―good. Selfishness, arrogance, cruelty―evil. The distinction seems pretty straightforward. But is that all there is to it? If good is so obvious, why does the Bible say that we need discernment to recognize it? Good or God? isn’t another self-help message. This book will do more than ask you to change your behavior. It will empower you to engage with God on a level that will change every aspect of your life.” —John Bevere

August 2-January 22, they’re on tour spreading this message across the country. Check out their tour stops today!

The Importance of Urban Ministry

Chicago resident Dr. John Fuder has served for over 30 years working in urban ministry, and currently trains and coaches the broader body of Christ to engage more deeply in contextualizing the gospel in their local communities.

What should the Church’s urban mission look like?

Dr. John Fuder answers in this episode of Faithlife Today:

In urban ministry it is essential that we don’t look to engage just one type of culture or one type of ethnicity, rather it is important to demonstrate Christ’s love to all communities. Urban ministry forces you to step out of your comfort zone and interact with people of varying cultural backgrounds and socioeconomic standings.

Eager to learn more about the Church’s urban mission? Get equipped with Dr. Fuder’s numerous works written on urban ministry including A Heart for the City: Effective Ministries to the Urban Community, A Heart for the Community: New Models for Urban and Suburban Ministry, and more!

Browse all books by Dr. John Fuder.
