Be Strong from Philip Small on Vimeo.
There is a strength/weakness balance that comes from a relationship with God.
Some people don’t realize that without God they can do nothing. We are weak. Even though we may be intelligent, successful, good looking, or in excellent physical condition, those things which we think make us “strong” individuals are really just gifts given to us by God. He makes us strong. Realizing your true weak and dependent state is the first step towards relying on Him.
The idea came to me to take characteristics like strength, determination, courage and others and show them as they relate to a Christian experience. I decided to begin with strength. I called up James from Obesity Bootcamp because he is an obvious example of strength. Visually he fits the analogy well, but even more importantly his faith in God and his reliance on Him makes the analogy complete.
This is a call to remember that the Creator is responsible for sustaining you and blessing you with gifts to bless others. So, the next time you are reminded about your “strengths” in compliments, rewards or accolades, remember it was the Creator who gave it to you. He will continue to pour out strength. Just remember where that strength came from. Be strong.
