2 Corinthians 12:8-9 NIV
Do you ever find yourself suddenly aware of your own weaknesses?
Being aware of your weaknesses if it was up to you and your own Good works you wouldn’t stand a chance of achieving salvation. We should find great comfort in the fact that we are nothing without salvation in Christ. When we know our weaknesses then we are more aware of our need for the lords strength. When we put ourselves in a position of humility and ask him to be strong where we are weak he is delighted to help us. Think of it this way you don’t have to ask a knight in shining armor twice to rescue his princess.
Thankfully God made away for us to be united with him despite impatience, selfishness, anger and pride. God deeply cares for us and patiently comforts us with steady, faithful and adoring love. Gods love even goes beyond this to embrace and transform our weakness when we give it to him. Weakness isn’t something to be feared or hidden. When we give our weakness to God it allows the power of Christ to work in and through us.
Sometime we can feel so tired and disappointed. But we should thank God for allowing us to be weak. We should know that God can work best with our weary heart and so we should give it over to him and ask for his renewal.
Today I challenge you to prayerfully submit your weakness to God so that through him you can be strong. His transformative love is waiting to Graciously restore you.
Prayer: Jesus I humbly acknowledge that I could not rescue myself. thank you that I live a life that you have redeemed and are restoring. Lift me up in strength today.
