Your weakness will turn to winning!
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
There are days when you feel weakness and nothing seems to be going right. But then the flip side, there will be days when your weakness turns to winning. Ttrue warriors are winners because they worship! I will admit it, at times, I don’t like the fact that I’m weak – But that changes when I focus on Jesus, who is strong! In my human nature, sometimes I let my fear of weakness speak louder than my trust in that God is wiser, stronger, and more powerful than I will ever be. I sometimes forget that God supplies all the strength that I need. Answer the call of the Lord.
A world where weakness is seen as costly. But the Kingdom of God is different. The Kingdom says to be afraid of those moments when you think you are independently strong. At all costs we must avoid the delusions of strength and fully depend on the grace of God. God’s grace makes a way for God’s strength to enter into our weakness.
Grace gives you the freedom from being disappointed that you cannot do life on your own – this is a to claim victory over these insecurities and a win over the pressures the world puts on us. With grace, you always win. “7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
8 They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.” Psalm 20:7–8.
As you go through your day, remember this: Even though you struggle with your weakness, your weakness is what allows God to pull you from your struggle.
It is in our weakness that we see our need for God.
So when it’s all said and done, be reminded that your struggle is real, but it’s not permanent.
