“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
The life of a Christian is a paradox to many people, but not to those who really live it. The world tells us that being weak is not acceptable. Christ tells us His strength is strongest when I'm weak. The world tells us to get all you can while you can. Christ tells us to give so that He can give back unto us (Luke 6:38). The world tells us to make as much noise as you possible to be seen. Christ tells us to be quiet and God will exalt us (Matthew 23:12). When our flesh is put under subjection, God can truly be glorified in our lives and we are guaranteed victory. Don't allow your flesh to get God's glory and steal your victory. God is willing to be your strength and might (Ephesians 6:10)!
Most Gracious and Heavenly Father, thank you for sustaining and enabling me to serve you. Without your grace and mercy, I would not be able to accomplish anything. Help me not to complain when trials and tribulations come my way, but when those season do come, help me to continue to lean on you and not on myself. Continue to be strong in my life. In Jesus Name, Amen.
