Supernatural Spotter

Psalm 73:26 “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” After a couple weeks off, I got back into my weightlifting routine yesterday, and as often happens after a hiatus, I felt some discouragement because my strength had deteriorated. But then I felt God remind me of a principle that I preached about on Sunday. The overwhelming majority of muscle development happens in the split second that you can’t lift anymore weight. This is why folks trying to build muscle are told to lift “to failure”. If you’re always lifting well within the bounds of what you’re capable of, you’ll never grow. In the same way, if we really believe that God has ultimate victory in store for us, then we will actually seek out trials because we realize that each obstacle is actually an opportunity to grow our faith and experience God’s power. We will “lift to failure” in every aspect of our lives. Lord thank you for reminding me that my goal is not to lift x amount of weight today, but to grow in faith and experience your power. Lifting to failure can be dangerous without someone to protect me, but you are my supernatural spotter, and with you there is safety even in the greatest of trials. I love you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
