Strength in Weakness
by Stephen May
I came across this little quote by Steven Lawson, ‘No-one is too weak to be used by God, only too strong’ It is a great reminder of the great Christian truth which Paul espoused when the Lord said to him, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ 2 Corinthians 12:9.
Often in our Christian walk, we rejoice in the strengths that God has given us, and minister to one another out of those strengths. This is good, but it is also a place where we can simply rely on our own strength and power. That often leaves little room for us to trust God to be strong for us.
The more I live the Christian life the more I find I am thrown into situations where I know only too well my weakness. However, it is at the time of my weakness that I discover that God through Christ becomes my strength.
I pray that you will find the great power of God in your weakness and so have your faith strengthened.
