God’s Power is Mad Perfect in Weakness! 

Are you feeling weak or powerless? If so, then take comfort from God’s words to the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:9. In this verse and the surrounding passage which speaks of Paul’s so-called “thorn in the flesh” are several valuable lessons for Christians: If you’re feeling weak this morning I pray this message will ministry to you in your time of need. Have a wonderful day as you remain in His presence relying on His power which is made perfect n weakness. Love you all. 

“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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

 

1. We are inadequate to face the difficulties of life on our own. Therefore, we need God’s help and his resources.

2. Human limitations and weaknesses provide perfect opportunities to experience the love and power of God. Therefore, we should call on the Lord in our time of need.

3. God’s grace is more than enough to meet every challenge that we face. His resources are unlimited.

Far too often when we feel weak or powerless we respond with fear, anger, despair, and/or desperation. Yet, this verse reminds us that God is an endless source of strength. No problem that we face is too great for him to solve. When we feel overwhelmed by our problems, we are in a perfect position to experience the salvation of the Lord who gives power to the weak and help to those in need.

Paul went on to say, “Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:9b-10).

Paul had the proper perspective. God’s presence in his life transformed the negative situations into occasions for praise. We too can praise God in the midst of trouble because God is greater than our problems and he will give us the grace and power to deal with them.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

  1. Thank you my friend.

    I especially liked your #2

    It’s so easy to forget in the hectic activities of daily life, that not one single thing happens without God’s permission. GOOD directly from the Divine Heart of Jesus and those not so good things which are given as opportunities to prove our love, our devotion and our willingness to Model the Life of Christ by accepting our suffering and offering it up.

    Continued Blessings!
    Patrick
