My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Psalm 73:26

Perhaps you admire others for the mighty works they do, and deep down in your heart you desire to do the same. Perhaps you made an effort in the past but failed so miserably that you determined never to try again. You accepted weakness as a flaw in your character and decided that you can do anything to change it.

The only shameful thing about weakness is to stop trying to overcome it. You were born helpless, but you were not meant to stay that way. You have the opportunity to develop power and strength through the grace of the almighty God. His power will strengthen you to become the person He meant you to be. Every weakness can be overcome when you become aware that God’s own Spirit works in your spirit. You will discover God-given talents and power that give strength, purpose and inspiration to your life.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Psalm 46:1
