But he (GOD) 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. 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. (2 Cor 12:9)
… because of my love for Christ … my weakness becomes a portal to GOD’s Power!
They mocked our Christ – it didn’t phase him. They plotted – didn’t budge him. They threatened- so what! In fact, right up until his close friend’s betrayal and his ultimate crucifixion he STILL didn’t succumb to temptation and curse those who were nothing more than the cat’s paw.
Because of His love for His Father GOD, he knew that all these weaknesses became a Portal to GOD’s Power in Him.
Lord Jesus, please forgive me for whingeing, bitching and moaning about all my situations…! Like the woman at the well, help me to see that it’s YOU who are trying to help me ACCEPT Your Grace. Amen! X
