I Am Weak

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 9:10

Why does God allow hard things in our lives at times? We know that God is good; yet we experience infirmities, reproaches, needs, persecutions, distresses, etc.

God doesn’t create evil, but at times He permits it. One of the things about weakness is that it causes instant humility and teaches us to depend on God instead of ourselves. The plague of modern Christianity is the idea that human strength, wisdom, experience, age, natural ability or qualifications make a good Christian.

We ask, where is the power that Paul had? I ask, where is the admitted weakness that Paul had in the modern Christian? The power of God rested on Paul because of His weakness, because only then could God show His strength in a way that only He received the glory.

The greatest servants of God, with the most power of Christ resting on them, are the weakest. It is by the grace of God that we are empowered to do His will, and weakness only helps instead of hinders.

His grace is sufficient; sufficient for all that we do and are called to do. All we need is the grace of God. It is sufficient.

-Matt
