Yes God has a weakness and when you find out what it is you will be Amazed! Yes God has a weakness and since time began it has caused those who discover this secret to sacrifice Everything to include their own lives and the lives of those they hold dearest, just to Be in that weakness!
What is God’s handicap and why does it matter?
“The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” – Psalms 121:5-8
God is the Ultimate Love-aholic!
He doesn’t sleep, He does take a vacation, He doesn’t take time off for holidays – GOD NEVER BLINKS!
In short the handicap of God is this – He Loves you so much that He would do anything to have a Love based relationship with you!
He is over-protective, over-loving and craves to spend time with you! Yes you just holding your hand and telling you how much He Loves you!
In His handicap is the secret to a contented life and one that will amaze you – here is why once you grasp this the rest of life will be immeasurably easier:
1) Every second, every person, every problem and every pain – was, is and always will be allowed to be in your life by The God Who Is a Love-aholic!
2) These moments, people, problems and pains are designed to create in you a more Loving, Peaceful and contented Spirit!
On the other hand let’s look at the idea that this isn’t true. What response do you have when the problems, pains, people and situations in life overwhelm you:
1) Bitterness, anger, disillusionment and general distrust of whatever and whoever you think is in control.
2) General feeling of dread about your life, feelings of inadequacy about yourself and non-growth or change due to a defensive posture about everything.
Could I believe and follow the idea that God is not handicapped with a Tremendous Love for me that is beyond human measure? Sure if I want my life to suck!
But let me say this – I did believe that for a very long period of time in my life when I was a fundamentalist and during that time my life revolved around fear and pain!
Once you have tasted the water of the spring of God’s handicap – you will never go back! Once you have tasted the bread of that which caused Jesus to have Super-human Love and go to the cross – You will never again be able to believe that God could be anything other than LOVE!
