Success is a dangerous place to hang out spiritually.
2 Corinthians 12:7-10 The Message
Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn’t think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me,

My grace is enough; it’s all you need.
My strength comes into its own in your weakness.

Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.
This week I will…

- Humbly thank God for where I have seen success in my life and give Him the credit.
- Pray for God's protection from Satan's influence in my life.
- Write down 10–15 things I can praise God for in my own trial or suffering.
- Memorize 2 Corinthians 12:9.
