Make Yourself Strong Again
“Therefore strengthen the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees.” Hebrews 12:12 NKJV
The Easy-to-read Version says, “You have become weak, so make yourselves strong again.”
The Bible tells the story of David and his men whose wives and children were captured by Amalikites while they were away. When they returned to Ziklag and realized what had happened, David and the people who were with him lifted up their voices and wept, until they had no more power to weep. Even David was greatly distressed, because the people spoke of stoning him, for they were aggrieved. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
You know, there are times when you take a beating; there are times when you lose your strength; there are times when you feel like giving up because you feel that all hope is lost, and there are times when you have lost your focus, visions and passion for whatever reasons: never give up! What you are going through right now was not meant to last for too long! Make yourself strong again and push again. You can still succeed, and it is never late to achieve your dreams.
“So then, brace up and reinvigorate and set right your slackened and weakened and drooping hands and strengthen your feeble and palsied and tottering knees.” Hebrews 12:12 AMP
