Don’t wrongly let your weaknesses separate you from Jesus. He loves you regardless of your struggles, and your struggles are beautiful, because it is indicating that you want rightness, wholeness, and completeness in your life, and you recognize that something is wrong, and you are learning that nothing of the flesh can provide that. Only Jesus can heal, and provide that as we discover that our confidence can only reside in Him. We are no longer undone by what we actively experience in the flesh, because we are being Divinely led on the journey in becoming more aware of Jesus than anything else as we freely choose to intimately cling to Him. Those struggles we experience now remind us that only Jesus truly matters, and because of our radically firm grip on Him, the Holy Spirit is able to more intimately work in our lives. We look to others and admit, “Yes, I struggle, but my heart’s intimate desire screams, ‘Jesus! My King Jesus, help me!’ My weaknesses covertly unveil my Jesus’ strengths. And regardless of what may be running through my mind as I firmly work at disciplining it, or what weaknesses the Holy Spirit lovingly brings to the surface so that we may deal with it together, my heart knows exactly who actively reigns within me. And I am comforted by the Great Comforter’s revelation, which instills a depth of confidence and affirmation within me: I am a child of the Great I Am, and a Bride of Christ!  Yes, I struggle, but my Abba is my Sole-Provider and so all things will be set to right as I actively cling to Jesus.” Our mouths openly praise Him through the struggles, and become a testament to others, all the while, deep within us where only we can hear, the Holy Spirit secretly comforts us with our Abba’s Truths, ‘My Beloved is mine, and I am His: He feedeth among the lilies.’ (Song of Solomon 2:16) ‘When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.’ (Isaiah 43:2-3) ‘Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.’ (Psalm 46:10)
