 Trading our Weakness For His Strength.

32 And what more shall I say? I do not have time to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson and Jephthah, about David and Samuel and the prophets, 33 who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; ( who found strength in weakness ) and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies.

Hebrews 11:32-34

They found strength In weakness,

Weakness produces dependency.

41 Stay awake and pray, so that you won’t enter into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Matthew 26:41

  • Our weakness is our flesh.
  • Our answer is the Spirit.
  • Our answer is not stronger flesh.
  • Our source has never been an earthly Christ but the heavenly God head made manifest on earth.

Jesus is our Source. Jesus as the source for all things. My source of all things.

“Concerning this, I pleaded with the Lord three times that it would leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:8-9‬ ‭CSB‬‬

Weakness is the prerequisite for Christ’s power in us.

  • We are empty to be filled
  • We are weak to be made strong
  • Our weakness is not a flaw.
  • Our weakness is our opportunity for STRENGTH in HIM!
  • Weakness is an opportunity for POWER to manifest in our live

What if we took pleasure in our weaknesses?

“So I take pleasure in weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and in difficulties, for the sake of Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:10‬ ‭CSB‬‬

When we’re weak, he’s strong.

“For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭3:17-21‬ ‭ESV‬‬
Jesus is addressing LUKEWARMNESS

The lukewarmness was COMPLACENCY & INDEPENDENCE

I’m RICH:
4145
ploúsios (an adjective, derived from 4149 /ploútos, “abundance”) – properly, fully resourced; rich (filled), by having God’s “muchness” – i.e. His abundance that comes from receiving His provisions (material and spiritual riches) through faith (4102 /pístis).    
  • I’m good. No worries.    
  • I’ve got all I need, I’m doing well.
  •      I can solve my own issues.
    I can handle sin on my own.
  • I can produce my own righteousness, if I simply try hard enough.
The Problem : Poor, pitiable, blind, naked.
 
The solution: Buy from Jesus::
  • Gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich
  • White garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen
  • And salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see.
He gave everything he had so we’d have everything we didn’t. Christ is our solution to all of our inadequacies, faults, flaws, poverty.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

2 Corinthians 8:9.
How do we buy what we can’t afford?
We give anything and everything we have. We give it all.
WE TRADE ALL OF OUR INADEQUATE RESOURCES FOR HIS!!!
We trade our brokeness to gain his wholeness.
We trade our unrefined gold for his refined gold. 
We trade our filthy rags for his white garments.
We trade our blindness for HIS SIGHT.
We trade our weakness for his strength.
We trade our less than enough for his more than enough. 
We fully surrender everything to him.
Some KINGDOM PRINCIPLES AT PLAY
  • The poor are made rich.
  • The naked are clothed.
  • The blind have sight.

The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. – Proverbs 18:21

The prodigal son was given a ring, sandals, a robe and a meal with the Father ….

• A ring on our finger signifying authority we’ve not earned
• Sandals on our feet showing Status we’ve not strived to attain , living in sonship and freedom.
• The Father’s robe, clothing us in his righteousness, giving us his appearance, walking in his likeness.
• Eating at a table in intimacy, consuming food and having our fill of that which will never leave us empty.

It begins with intimacy.

2 Chronicles 7:14
and my people, who bear my name, humble themselves, pray and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

His will for our land…. Healing. Bringing the Kingdom come WHEREVER WE ARE!

Hebrews 6
1Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2and of instruction about washings,a the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. 3And this we will do if God permits.

Do we really want HIM or just the things that come along with him?

SEEK MY FACE | Do we want to KNOW HIM? Do we want HIS HEART?

Acts 13:22
“After removing Saul, he made David their king. He testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.‘”

Habakkuk 2:14
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord
as the waters cover the sea.

Where do we have influence?

( Gaining prophetic vision for every area of our lives )

  • Our Own Lives
  • Our Family & Household
  • Our Workplace / arena of income ( businesses )
  • Our Community of Faith
  • Our Role to the Body and the Lost ( ministry )
  • Our City , Nation , World
  • Any other place of influence

Matthew 7
7“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. 9Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? 10Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? 11If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

4/22/18 | Intimacy With The Father

Christine Smith shares about intimacy with the Father. Time and attention is what we give as we turn into the Spirit and seek the face and heart of God.

You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life. John 5:39-40
