OUR WEAKNESS, HIS STRENGTH

2 Corinthians 12:9


"But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." NIV

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness." KJV

How could God use our weaknesses and insufficiencies to exert His power and strength? If we were strong and could do everything in our own strength, why would God need to intervene and show His magnificent omnipotence? When others can see that we are inadequate and insufficient to accomplish something, but we succeed in a miraculous way, the credit can only go to God and God alone. We were not sufficient within ourselves to accomplish such a thing. That's how God uses our weaknesses. He picks up where we have reached our limit and takes it all the way to completion.

Heavenly Father, we realize our limitations. Unfortunately, we fail to recognize that You will take us further in Your strength. All we need to do is go as far as we can in our own abilities and allow You to take over to bring us to the goal. Thank you Lord, for showing Your strength and power through our weaknesses. In Jesus' name, Amen.

My prayer partner use to pray this verse for me a lot in our younger days when I was attacked with migraines. I'm so thankful for God's grace.
