THOUGHT OF THE DAY
“For He knows our frame, He [earnestly] remembers and imprints [on His heart] that
we are dust. “
God is not a task master. He isn’t looming over us with a stick waiting for us to
trip up so He can inflict punishment.
Like the word says, “He knows our frame, He [earnestly] remembers and imprints [on
His heart] that we are dust.”
He knows we are weak. He knows we are not smart enough.
He knows how fragile we are.
But what happens is that we forget God knows we are dust and we crush
ourselves when we fall. We think our sin catches Him off guard but it doesn’t.
He knows our weaknesses and struggles.
The word is clear about how we should look at our weaknesses,
“Three times I called upon the Lord and besought [Him] about this and begged
that it might depart from me;
But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough
for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully];
for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show
themselves most effective in [your] weakness.
Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that
the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over
and dwell) upon me!
2 Corinthians 12:9
God knows our frame so like Paul we need to embrace our weaknesses.
Like Paul we need to gladly glory in our weaknesses and infirmities.
God’s power and strength are made perfect in our weaknesses.
So as I end this post remember that God knows our frame, He
knows we are dust. We don’t have to put on a facade for Him.
He is not impressed with our show of strength. He wants to be
our strength, period!
