“For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV)
Weak women find their strength in God! We learned in the previous blog post that it is okay to be weak. God’s strength is perfected through human weakness. We must surrender ourselves to God and allow Him to work through us.
While you may acknowledge that God is all-powerful, it can still be hard to resist the temptation to work in your own strength. How can you build your reliance on the Lord? The answer is found in His word. It is alive and able to transform your mindset. The Word of God will deliver you from the desire to do life without Him.
Today I am sharing 13 scriptures for weak women. Read these scriptures and write them down. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand and believe the Word of God. Journal any revelations you receive while meditating on these scriptures. Most importantly, recite these scriptures out loud daily as if you are taking a vitamin supplement. Each time you declare the Word of God, your spirit will become more receptive to relying on His strength.
