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. 2 Corinthians 12:9
In my study about covenants, I ran across a profound truth that covenants were designed to eliminate weaknesses. Each time I think about it, I remember what God spoke to Paul regarding the ‘thorn in the flesh’ he had to deal with. Another version says, “My strength is made perfect in weakness,” which always brings me back to what our covenant with God was designed to do.
You see, our weakness only gives way to showcasing the power and strength of a mighty God. Where we can’t, He can.
Listen to what Paul says in verse 10; “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.”
Because Christ is in me, I have access to everything I need to accomplish impossible things. Miracles, signs and wonders follow me not because of me, but because I have a covenant keeping God in me. I rely on Him for the crazy things He asks me to do. Any area I’m weak or experience an insufficiency, He steps in and supersedes my puny strength with impressive power.
Lord, I am so thankful that You’re in me making me one with You. I’m aware of my weakness but choose to focus on Your strength because I know that nothing will be impossible for me when I do. I yield to Your plans and purposes today, knowing that I can do all things through You makes me strong. It’s in Your name and for Your glory, Amen
