Whom Do You Trust The Lord Jesus Christ or Your own Strength?
by Sam Sweg
1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world; our faith.
When Jesus appeared to me years ago, He told me something that changed my life forever. Jesus said “people have more faith in their faith than in me”(Jesus). I told Him I did not understand that. He said when you are moved by how you feel or by condemnation or self exaltation then your faith is in yourself and not in and through The Lord Jesus Christ. He is The Greater One!
1 John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
How many times have you heard someone say I don’t feel very good or I cannot do it I don’t feel like praying. Many times they will say it is impossible for them to have the victory or faith to be healed. The key to victory is to realize that your strength is in Jesus Christ and not in yourself.
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
Jesus told me that is why pride comes before a fall. We trust so much in our greatness and ability instead of relying on our Lord Jesus Christ. When you trust Jesus to take care of the circumstances or road blocks in your life, then you are releasing His Power for the Victory!
The only way to release His Power is through you Trusting Him. The Greatest most Powerful Faith in all existence is your simple child like Trust in The Lord Jesus Christ
Philippines 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
Zechariah 4:6 So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the LORD of hosts.
Romans 8:37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus
