Have you ever truly experienced Gods power taking over your weakness? There are times that we experience storms and resistance in our lives. This usually overwhelms us and sometimes we feel completely crashed. There is a point in life that everything seems to go the wrong way. At this point you always feel like all your energy is gone and there is nothing left for you to do. You do not know if you should give up or press in.Sometimes you even try to think if it is God making you slow down or if its the enemy that is coming against you.
Have you ever been there?
I have been there. The problem with me is that I tend to work on my own strength and sufficiency.But there is a point in life when your strength is not enough for you. Your strength and sufficiency fails you. At this point you cannot help yourself and you can only lean on God because you do not want to bow out. If you reach this point remember that in the book of 2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me,?My Grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness? Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weakness , so that the power of Christ may rest in me. Our dependence is well expressed in that verse when Paul wrote about the thorn in his flesh. Paul pleaded with God three times to take it away but God told him that His power is made perfect in Paul?s weakness. God did not remove Paul?s weakness ,instead he spoke into his weakness. God?s power is mainly found when we shift from begging him to remove our struggle but to listen to Him speak into our struggles. Our weakness makes us depend on God and draw us close to Him. If you are not strong anymore because you cannot fight or your weakness is overwhelming you, just pray to God for his power to be manifested in your weakness. You do not have to try to be perfect because God is able to use less than perfect vessels. God simply wants us to surrender our inadequacy to him so that He can fill us with His strength.
If you are in any storm or challenge right now, I encourage you not to have the pressure on yourself. If you have any addictions that are pulling you away from God, surrender them and God will manifest Himself. Do not put it on your shoulders or stress about it. Just let God.Allow His power to manifest in your weakness. Do not compromise your peace when you have God who already loves you unconditionally and is faithful to His word. Do not stress because God?s power is always made perfect in our weakness. Let him fill you with His grace and strength. Our ability and strength comes from the One who can do all things.
2 Corinthians 12:9 But He said to me, ?My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.? Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me.
