Even Us Wimps Can Be Strong

It is a reoccurring theme of the Bible that when we are weak, then we can be strong.

The challenge for me on this particular passage was to figure out how to illustrate God's power making a weakling strong. How would you do that?

Fire is often used to represent God's power and His presence. So, I decided to doodle a 90lb weakling surrounded by a body of fire on steroids. (Not that God would ever need to use steroids.)

I promise you that the truth of this verse has become real to me many times in my life.

Zechariah 4:6 “'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty."

Thank you for this doodle, Rick. It means a lot to me at this time in my life. I've been feeling quite anxious lately and I know I need to hand it over to Him. I posted this on my FB page since it was a share doodle and added your link to the note also! Take Care.

Love it Rick. I tell you I feel that way many times...without His power I would just fail over and over.

With the fires out here coming closer and closer to our house I saw this and immediately thought your were drawing an arsonist. Sorry, that's what was on my mind. At any other time I would have gotten your concept.

It's a inspirational thought to keep in mind right now.

Good choice to illustrate that passage. I used to be a 90 lb. weakling, but now I'm about 105 lbs strong. I don't think that was God's doing, but He sure has made my insides stronger, tons stronger.
