God Enables The Disabled


Just because those of us who have a disability or may be in a wheelchair doesn't mean that we can't do something that we put our minds too. Disability doesn't mean un-abled. Things may take us a little longer to accomplish something or maybe things are done differently but we can still accomplish a lot. Here is a quote that goes with this message

"Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance and facing your fears" by Gillian Anderson

So technically anything that we put our minds too we can do. But just like anything we have to work hard at it and it does take practice and patience but you can eventually get to where you desire to be or who you desire to become. As you may know the verse that says

Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26

There are even quite a few people in the Bible and today who have had disabilities and also relied on God and got their strength from Him. One of my favorite stories is about Moses. He had a speech disability but despite his hard time with speech God chose Moses to speak to Pharaoh to set the Israelite's free. His story inspires me a lot. It shows that God can enable people with disabilities to do things that they never thought they could do. Sometimes we might feel like we can't do something but when we feel like that we should pray to God "Lord I don't feel strong enough to do this task, if you want me to do this please give me the strength to carry on this task" This verse says...

"God gives strength to the weary, and increases the power of the weak" Isaiah 40:29-31

as well as...

"But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong." 1 Corinthians 1:27

I kind of feel that way in my life. Because I was sick for a long time and felt weak most days and spent most of my childhood going to doctors and hospitals and feeling depressed for a while but now God has brought me joy and has made me stronger. So I didn't really get to enjoy my childhood as much as I enjoy my life more now. But now, I'm using my life to live for Him and making christian blog posts and YouTube videos on my faith and disability. I went from being embarrassed about my disability even my faith for a while to loving to talk about it and encourage others with disabilities and struggles. And for God using my disability and faith as a testimony for others.

Another example is one of my favorite authors and speakers Nick Vujicic who has no arms and legs. He had lots of struggles with his physical disability but learned to get around and God is helping him cope with his disability. He is also using his life to live and serve God and encourage others in their faith and hard times in life.

So these examples I shared with you shows that disability doesn't mean inability. The definition for disability is a physical or mental condition that limits a persons movements, senses or activities. But I believe that God sees disability differently. Some people may see disability as weak or different but because God loves us all equally and and has a hope and a future for each and every single one of us. We don't have to worry about maybe feeling weak or not strong enough as long as we believe and trust and rely on God He will show us the way and give us strength and turn us into the person that we are meant to be.
