Bring it on, Incredible Hulk!

As you can probably tell, I am a committed body builder and muscle enthusiast. I have been to the gym TWICE this week. That’s an incredible amount of pumping up those muscles! Here is a picture of my Frank Bruno impression…Quite accurate I think. The biceps are bursting the seems of the top and of course, I have yet to show you the full extent of my strength!

Ok, maybe it’s time to get real. I’m not exactly a body builder. I’m not really a man of great strength. In fact, compared to the guy next to me in the gym last night, I look like a scrawny a sausage dog.
This guy didn’t have muscles, he practically had Mount Everest growing in his upper arm! No matter how many weights he added, his arms seemed to take the pressure.

However, his face couldn’t quite keep up with his arms. As the arms tightened, the face did too, but whereas his arms looked strong, his face looked like it was about to melt into a pond of sweat and cracks began to emerge.

Nonetheless, the incredible hulk would have been impressed. This man had enough strength to fight his way through the day. He had the ability to push aside whatever was in his way.

As a Christian, I have a different kind of strength. A strength that’s far beyond what I could ever achieve physically.
A strength that comes from my creator and sustainer God.

Physical strength alone won’t get you through life. It’s great to be healthy and it’s fine to have big muscles, but when challenges come, physical strength isn’t always the answer.

You know, God promises in the bible that his strength is made perfect in our weakness. When we feel weak and broken, HE is strong and he is reliable.

He welcomes us to call on him.

I don’t know whether you believe in God, but next time you feel weak, il-equipped or powerless, why not give God a try?

Because his strength, his power is made perfect in our weakness.
