The LORD my Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like those of a deer and enables me to walk on mountain heights! —Habakkuk 3:19

Admitting that we are not strong is not the same as saying that we have no strength. Actually, when we account for ourselves honestly, we’re positioned to receive levels of strength we could not have imagined. Real strength doesn’t come from within; it is divinely provided. Like Habakkuk, we must recognize: “The Lord my Lord is my strength.”

The wise know this and gladly embrace it. Others will eventually come to know it but often after they’ve gone as long and as far as their own strength will take them . . . only to come up short.

The day we admit our weakness is a day of defeat for our pride and a day of victory for our spirit. The dead root of self-reliance has been exposed and cut away so that faith can flourish. It is healthy to admit weakness when God, the Lord, is your strength.

Make it Personal

Recount a time in your life when you had to own up to your weakness and turn matters over to God’s strength.
