Do you have a weakness you grow weary of? Have you been humbled recently and hate it? Have you pleaded with the Lord (maybe more than 3 times) to remove something from your life??? Do you begrudge your insufficiencies instead of focusing on His sufficiency?
Y’all. Read one of my very favorite passages from the Passion Translation.
“My weakness becomes a PORTAL TO GOD’S POWER!!!”
“Three times I pleaded with the Lord to relieve me of this. But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my love for Christ—I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power.” 2 Corinthians 12:8-10
Today let’s rest in HIS strength and HIS grace and not our own lack!
