Who Else Has Heard You Never Know How Strong You Are?

Who Else Has Heard You Never Know How Strong You Are? To put it differently, it gets so frustrating, plus I get tired of hearing it all the time. Trust me, I know you do as well because it’s not about being strong. Or you never know how strong you are until life hits you really hard.

What Happens When Your Life Hits A Wall?

In other words, you never know how strong you are because you simply have never been through many life obstacles. That is to say, it’s not that I am stronger than you are or you are stronger than the next person. It’s about getting yourself up, getting yourself out of the rut and overcoming everything that life throws at you.

By all means necessary, it’s about keeping a sane mind and a healthy mental state as well. Of course, circumstances will happen where we cannot control, but it’s about not giving up. You know they say “Only the Strongest Survive.” But it’s about keeping a positive mental mindset. And knowing that God will get you through any problems in life.

At This Point You Will Realize How Really Strong You Are

Remember Psalms 28: 7: The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. The Lord will give you strength when you need it the most.” So it doesn’t matter how strong you are, in reality you never know how strong you are.

On the positive side is to remember you are strong but it’s The Lord who gives you the strength to get you through anything. In fact, one night I remember I was watching a Facebook live, the prophet told me what I went through was traumatic and devastating. Afterwards, he said “You will have a better year next year and you won’t have to ever worry about going through that again.”

To put it differently, I was shocked when he told me that because to me what I went through wasn’t that bad. As an illustration, I could not picture myself or have a visual of me having devastating trauma in my life. To me it wasn’t a lot, I felt that it was more people in the world that have been through more experiences that were worse than mine.

God Gives You Strength & Make You Strong

It never dwelled on me that I experience so much death, hurt, being heart broken, and family turning completely against me. From trying to commit suicide, being a young single mother. Being homeless, going through depression, having no money, no job or anyone to turn to but God.

In this case, it doesn’t matter how strong you are, The Lord gives you strength. Jesus Christ was my only way out, I kept my strength in Him. If it wasn’t for God I wouldn’t have made it out, He made a way for me out of no way. No matter what I went through I kept praying, fasting, speaking in tongues. Decreeing and declaring who God said I was in Christ Jesus over my life.

Life is Not Impossible, All Things Are Possible

When it looked impossible, I saw a vision of me being successful in life. I wrote out a plan, vision and goals for my life. Another key point is that I did not give up when hard times came. Overall, you will never know how strong you are until you hit a brick wall.

Under those circumstances speak to those mountains in your life. Keep a positive mindset, and find a solution to any situation. With this in mind, remember if you don’t know a way out, God does. He will give you visions, dreams and steps to help you overcome anything in life. Remember God has a purpose for your life, He hasn’t forgotten about you.
