When I am Weak, He is Strong


2 Corinthians 12:9


My grace is enough for you. When you are weak, then My power is made perfect in you.





When Paul asked God to take away his trouble, God spoke to him, “My grace is enough for you. When you are weak, then My power is made perfect in you.”


Paul went through a lot of tribulations in his life, but he clung to his hope in Jesus. He knew that God would always be present and would help him no matter what. It is also true for us. Paul, you and I serve a God who turns our weakness into our strength. God works incredible miracles in the lives of those who come before Him with all their brokenness and need. His power is made perfect in those who simply cry out to Him in desperation.


When we are feeling weak, discouraged, or uncertain, pray and ask God for strength and power. Acknowledge that all we have and all that we can do comes from Him. When we acknowledge that we can’t do anything without God, it allows God to truly work in and through us in amazing ways.


Remember, when we are weak, God remains strong and He will reveal His power through us.





Prayer


Dear God, thank You for Your power in me. Help me to remember that when I am weak, You are strong. I trust You all the time. Amen.
