We don't need to be strong

I don’t always feel strong.

Revelation 3:8 I know you well; you aren’t strong.

Hey that’s me.  Do you think it is possible that God knows this?  The fact that we are not always strong.  YES!  He knows.  He knows that we are made of dust.  He knows that we do not have the strength.
God is concerned about our hearts.  He knows us – He knows that we are weak.  But what is the condition of our hearts?  Have we tried to obey Him?

Revelation 3:8 I know you well; you aren’t strong, but you have tried to obey and have not denied my Name.

When God sees us endeavoring to obey Him, it moves Him.  What does it mean to obey Him?  I believe it means that we seek and pursue Him and when we hear Him speak we do what He says.  I love the phrase: ‘but you have tried’.  I want to encourage those who have tried to follow God – Go for it!  He is moved by it – don’t give up and don’t stop.
