Can you really overcome any weakness with God’s help? Yes!
What are some powerful weaknesses of the flesh that some are struggling with? Some weaknesses may appear to be insurmountable weaknesses like: alcoholism, smoking, pornography, etc. Yet, with God’s help, they can all be overcome.
Will God miraculously get rid of the weakness? No! One will have to continually put up a hard fight. God will supply the tools to win the fight.
Things that we will need to supply: desire, sincerity, seriousness, determination. God cannot help us if we lack the desire, the sincerity, seriousness or the determination to overcome the weakness of the flesh.
If we have these requirements then what will God supply?
God will supply his holy spirit, which is the most powerful force in the universe, to help us win the battle against our weakness.
How does God supply this powerful force?
We have to ask for this helper by continually petitioning him in prayer. The privilege of prayer is available to us at any time, day or night. God is always available and is never too busy to give us a listening ear.
God’s spirit will also flow to us if we daily read God’s word, the Holy Bible. This book comes in a size that we can easily have wherever we may be. Reading it will strengthen us as we read examples of how he has helped many others deal with all kinds of weaknesses.
He will also provide positive encouragement and reinforcement by providing real friends that have our best interests at heart and regular association with like-minded people will bolster us at times. Sometimes we need a human touch and god will make sure that is there when needed.
What are the benefits of overcoming our weaknesses?
One thing is that our relationship with God will move to a higher level. We will feel a lot better about ourselves. We will enjoy more restful sleep as there is nothing heavier than a condemning conscience.
We can easily envision how much better we will feel if we overcome whatever weakness is plaguing us. It might be hard and it may take some time but nothing is impossible with God’s help and support.
