“And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’…”
(2 Corinthians 12:9)
Strength, from weakness.
You know, Paul said it is when we are weak, he makes us strong. Here we are reminded that no matter what we are facing in our lives, when we feel we are at a point of no return, when we feel weak, if we confide in him, his strength will be enough to make it all worthwhile.
God can handle any challenge we face.
I know I constantly talk about hardships, its because we all go through them.
Its in our hardship that we need to trust in him, but not only that, when things are going great; praise him, glorify him, so he can always provide the strength you need when feeling weak.
One of the my most weakest moments in my life was child birth.
My oldest son was enroute.
We were in the delivery room.
I pushed, pushed and pushed.
He kept going back up.
It was like he did not want to come out in to this world (I kind of don’t blame him).
After about an hour of pushing, I felt weak.
My mom said a little prayer.
I found some strength.
Together my mom and my husband grabbed my legs, as I pushed, they pushed inward.
Poof the baby arrived.
I felt so drained, so weak, physically, emotionally, mentally weak.
This is a natural process that millions of women did before me and millions more will continue to do so after me.
I felt weak, it was through that weakness, with my mothers comforting words, God provided not only the physical strength from within, but exterior strength using my mom and spouse.
We need to always trust that God will handle all our circumstances and he will find a solution.
We also have to do our part in faith, with trust, to get towards that victory.
We have to pray, we have to believe,
and we have to press through to victory.
No matter what you are facing know his grace is sufficent to provide the strength.
Have faith, because when you are weak, he will provide the strength you need to cary on.
Father I thank you for the strength you continously provide. There are times I feel down and out. There are times I feel I will not make it. My faith in you has shown me that you have been able to provide, when I thought I would never. In my weakness, your provided strength. Your grace, your love, and you have always been sufficient for me. Thank you. Amen.
