Pastor Timothy Burdick is called the "Minister of Abilities" for Friday Study Ministries because of his strong outreach to the disabled community.  He has been blind since birth and his wife, Susan, was blind because of Multiple Sclerosis.  Here is his thought for you:

God's Strength In You

ďFor the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strengthĒ (1 Corinthians 1:25)

Many of us who face special needs have listened to lies for too long. We have come to view ourselves the way the world sees us, which is namely as weak and ineffective. Today however, I want to challenge you to get rid of that kind of thinking; realizing that any weakness you might have can be an opportunity for Godís strength to flow through you into the lives of other people. Have you ever really thought about the strength of God who created and maintains everything? Take a minute to think on Him, comparing the weakness that you face with the strength of God. You will find your disabilities turning into abilities and your obstacles turning into stepping stones to a better life.

The Bible has a lot to say about perseverance and faithfulness. To "persevere" simply means to hang in there and draw upon Godís strength when you canít face life alone. Be faithful to the dream that God has put in your heart, knowing that He can bring it to pass. See any weakness you might have as an opportunity to let Godís strength be in you. Donít listen to lies that tell you what you canít do, listen to Godís Word telling you what you CAN, and you will be amazed at what you can overcome through Him.

Remember Philippians 4:13 - "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Thank you for reading this.
