I am Closest in Your Weakness

“Expect me to move! Expect me to come in power and deliver you from all that is holding you back! Expect me to protect you and your family. Expect me to fulfil my promises to you! Remove all doubt, disbelief and double-mindedness. My words and promises are true, I have given you my signs and wonders -you are seeing correctly and you are receiving my nudges and winks. I am here. I am moving. I am showing you, revealing myself to you and opening your eyes. I’m trying to get your attention. I am all around you and drawing you to me all day long, even in the everyday, mundane when you least expect it, that’s when I’ll show up. 

In the everyday, mundane when you least expect it, that’s when I’ll show up

In your moment of weakness, that is when I’m closest to you. Don’t push me away by falling into guilt and shame, but come running into my arms in those moments. For those moments are when I can truly heal you, lead you, speak to you and transform you. In your weakness you are the softest and most vulnerable – turn TO me, not to the lies of the enemy that so easily entrap you when you feel you have fallen short. My grace is abundant. There is nothing you can or can’t do that my grace doesn’t consume. Your weakest moments will see my greatest work in you – healing, transforming, empowering, strengthening – if you turn TO me. Rest your head on my heart in my loving embrace. Don’t give your ear to the enemy, for he speaks lies to your soul that contain you and entrap you. Rest in me, my child. Rest in my embrace. I am your Father and I love you. I have all the grace. I will build you up by you resting in me. Turn to me. Not to the past, not to the lies. Draw close to me for I am there, in the midst. Like a child searches for the comfort of their parent when they need them the most, so search for me when you feel you have fallen short and failed. I am rebuilding you in these moments. 

Your weakest moments will see my greatest work in you

You feel like your life is dissected between spiritual time with me and natural moments in reality, but actually, I am the closest in those moments because that is when you need me the most. That is when I am trying to connect with to you. If you can connect to me in those moments, you will connect to me throughout the rest of the day. Learn to look for me and connect to me in those difficult and deflating moments. Search for me and my truth. Feel my embrace and my grace to you. This is what will rebuild you and renew your mind! I am giving you divine mindfulness! I am producing in you the mind of Christ, the mind of heaven, you are being transformed and you need to partner with me for my work to be completed in you. 

Turn to me! Turn to me in those moments! I am closest in your failings, weaknesses and shortcomings. Look for me and you will find me!”

“When you are half-hearted and wavering it leaves you unstable. Can you really expect to receive anything from the Lord when you’re in that condition?” James 1:8 TPT

“Move your heart closer and closer to God, and he will come even closer to you.” James 1:8 TPT

“But he answered me, “My grace is always enough for you, and my power finds its fill expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weakness, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment – when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my love for Christ – I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power.” 2 Cor 12:9-10 TPT

“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.” Rom 12:2 TPT
