Do you have seasons of life where you feel inadequate?  I imagine you know what I’m talking about.  Seasons of life where your calendar is so full that you don’t feel like you are good at anything!  I certainly go through seasons of inadequacy and when those times come, I feel down.  My mind begins to fill with ungodly thoughts and I can even feel a little depressed.  Maybe you can relate.  Listen my friend, the enemy wants to remind you of who you are not.  He desires to steal your joy by reminding you of all of your faults, imperfections and failures.  I want to share with you a verse that brings me comfort when I feel inadequate.  You can find it in 2 Corinthians 12:9, “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 about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me”.  I want to remind you today of who you are in Christ!  If He is your Lord and Savior then you have the power of the living God inside of you!  He tells us in His Word that through our weaknesses, His power is made perfect.  He tells us that He is enough!  You and I are human.  We have faults, imperfections and failures, but we know the God of the Universe and we know that He is mighty and strong.  So, when you feel inadequate—you just remind the enemy who you serve. You remind the enemy who lives in you.  I encourage you to fill your mind up with truth and stand on His Word.  Remember:  In your weakness—He is strong!  Thanks for reading today!  ~Joy

  1. Thanks so much for this reminder!! It seems as women this is something we all deal with at one time or another. I wish it was easier to constantly ignore Satan and his lies!
