You know, some days we can feel weak and a disappointment to our Father. Well, when you are feeling that way, my one recommendations is for you to “Rejoice!” That’s right! I know that sounds silly, but our Father’s strength is made perfect in our weakness.
Our weakness does not surprise Him, or even disappoint Him. From the moment He called you and wooed you in this relationship with Him, He knew that you would not win your inner battles with temptation every time. You are still a work in progress, but in His eyes, you are a masterpiece — despite your failures. He sees you as a winner! He sees you through the eyes of love, and His love covers a multitude of sin. When He looks at you, He looking through the blood of Jesus. Go ahead and call upon Him to strengthen you, and He will help you overcome your weaknesses!
Go ahead and look up II Corinthians 12:9; Ephesians 2:10; Ephesians 3:16, so you can see all of this for yourself. Then pray,
Father, I am so glad that nothing can separate me from Your love. Strengthen me so I can resist all the temptations of the evil one. And help me see myself the way You see me — complete in Christ. Amen!
Go on, take on the day!

With these Morning Messages, I take you on guided tours to, as Bunyan described, the Celestial City. At times we linger at corners familiar and unseen. And explore the depths of our faith along the way.
The trail is long, but there’s no hurry. Though we do need to stock up on supplies for the way, and that’s where I need your help. If you enjoy these messages, please consider becoming a contributing member of this tour group. It will be very much appreciated.
