Let Me Be the Glove LORD. YOU Be the Hand that Moves Me

A new pair of gloves
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Today I want to give you this picture as a visual reminder.  Gloves
What is a glove without a hand? A lifeless, useless thing. 

This winter I have often worn gloves, not only outside, but inside as well.  My hands are cold!  So the gloves keep reminding me of something I wrote in my journal a few years ago:

 “Even though I feel physically weak, and my burden of responsibility seems too heavy,
I can do everything that God intends for me to do by the power of Him working in me,
empowering me.  The Holy Spirit of God dwells in me.
Let me be the glove, Lord.   I am the glove—God be the hand that moves me.”

As believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we know that God the Holy Spirit lives in us. It is He who strengthens us. In Ephesians, Paul is praying for the believers to be encouraged and have faith.

That he would grant you according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man. Ephesians 3:16

God the Holy Spirit indwells the inner man, and strengthens our soul and encourages our heart with His might. That's encouraging to me.

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. Ephesians 3:20

The power that is working in us is the Holy Spirit of God if we will avail ourselves to His power.  If we will look to Him for our strength, we can be His hands and feet on this earth. 

Let me encourage you.  You CAN do WHATEVER GOD INTENDS for you to do if you avail yourself to His power that is already dwelling inside you. Look to Him for your strength and receive His comfort.  All to His glory.
