Strong Enough

When I needed help, You lifted me from the depths of great despair

And when burdens, pain, and sorrow have been more than I can bear

You’ve always been my courage to restore life’s troubled sea

And to move those little mountains that have looked so big to me

Many times, when I’ve had problems and when bills I’ve had to pay

And the worries and the heartaches just kept mounting every day

Lord, I don’t know how You did it, can’t explain the wheres or whys

All I know is I’ve seen those mountains turn to blessings in disguise

No, I’ve never moved a mountain, for my faith is far too small

Yet, I thank You, precious Lord; You have always heard my call

And as long as there are mountains in my life, I’ll have no fear

For the mountain-moving Jesus is my strength and always near

How is your faith? Is it strong or is it fragile? Has your faith been thoroughly tested or has it been smooth sailing so far? Is your faith strong enough? Are you strong enough?

I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times, I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me (2 Corinthians 12:7-9).

It is often said that God won’t give us more than we can handle. But I can assure you that God will allow us to be stretched to the limit. When you are in Christ though, whether your faith is weak or great, it is strong enough. Christ’s strength is made perfect in our weakness. Because of this, you are strong enough!
