“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
We know our own weaknesses only too well. They are the areas that trip us up over and over. We often try to hide those weak spots. We hate to even acknowledge them. They may be areas we like to gloss over, like procrastination; or they may be serious life threatening addictions.
God tells us that when we invite Him into those very places of weakness they become the entry point of His amazing strength in us! What a promise! Acknowledge the weakness today that is dragging your life down, invite Jesus into that very area and watch the truth of His word become real.
Thank you, Heavenly Father, that Your amazing grace is ENOUGH to cover all the weak areas of my life and character. Thank you that my weaknesses, though hard to admit to, are the very entry points of Your grace and power. Help me to change the way I view my weaknesses and rather than shrink from them and try to hid or cover them, may I bring them to You to fill with Your power. I look with confident expectation for Your help and Your hope. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
Thought: Challenge yourself to openly acknowledge the specific weakness that tends to drag you down. Now pause and agree with God that you will let Him pour His strength into that very place. Trust God to go to work in you. Make a note to re-visit this issue next week and re-affirm your prayer weekly until you see the fruit of Christ’s strength in the middle of your weakness.
