Are You Feeling Weak Today?
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
Are you feeling weak today? Good, because through our weakness God gives us strength. The above verse also states that Paul took pleasure in troubles. That seems hard, right? To actually take pleasure in distresses for Christ's sake. Mind you he was being persuctued for Christ's sake. What about when we are going through troublesome times and maybe part of it is because of our own dumb mistakes? The bible says that our strength is made perfect in weakness. Most of the testing and trials that we endure are making an area in our life perfect. Have you ever looked back on something and said to yourself, " I can't believe I used to struggle with that"? I have done this many times and I remember praying about it. Now I must thank the Lord that he was faithful in answering that prayer. Seriously, at the time I told myself and others that this is the way I was made and that I will never be to change. I said this because I had tried in my own power to change and I had failed numerous times. I had actually even become worse. People often try to find excuses for their actions when they don't have any self-control. But praise God that he is able to change us and ever so gently. Most times we won't even notice until later and say, "Hey, I have been delivered", Praise God. Thank you Jesus.
