Flexing Contest

Imagine muscle guys on a stage huffing and puffing. Doing every possible maneuver to out flex one another. (Ridiculous and rather funny I know.)
It seems like this is what we try to get into with God. We imagine that He will show himself strong as we “do our part” in this grace walk and flex our muscles next to Him for all to see.
Oh darlin', sit down!!

1 Chronicles 16:9
For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.

Our God is strong! He has no interest in you flexing and posturing in this fight. He is longing for you to acknowledge His faithful strength. God awaits your joyful anticipation of His Victory in your life.
You are wearing yourself out trying to play the fighting role when as more than an overcomer you were meant to stand and proclaim the victory!!

Romans 8:37
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
