When I Am Weak

Updated on October 7, 2009

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 KJV

Have you been so weak at times that you didn't think you would even make it through the day?

I wish I was like Paul, he could say for when I am weak then I am strong.

But, we all have been there in our weakness God makes us stronger. I never really new this until I had fallen far from God over trials and storms in my life.

God is a good God, he won't leave us or forsake us, we tend to pity ourselves when we fall into depression, but we must know that in our weakness God is stronger, He will take over and guide us and hold us. He will give us rest.

So when your going through hard times and you know your at your weakest call on God for He is strong in our weaknesses.

      Paul had a passion for ministry, and he also had a health problem. I believe that kept Him just that much more closer to the Lord. The Lord knows! Yes, "Call on God for He is strong in our weaknesses." Always Remember when you can't He can!

      Always a pleasure!

      The confession of our weakness before God, is his cue to strengthen us. Amen to what you said, "He will take over and guide us and hold us. He will give us rest." Another encouraging hub. Thank you.

      Some of the greatest contributions made to society have come from weak, suffering and hurting individuals. When we realize we are weak, we realize we need God. When we let God take charge of our life, He does great things through us. Thus, our weakness becomes our strength. Be blessed,
