But He said to me, My grace(My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you[sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect and show themselves most effective in[your] weakness –2 Corinthians 12:9
Weak or strong? If you had to pick one of those words to describe yourself, which one would it be? I think most of us would probably say “weak.” But did you know that we don’t have to remain defeated by our weaknesses?
The only way to overcome your weakness is to rely on God’s strength. To do that, you have to stop focusing on your weaknesses. You cannot look at everything you are not. You must look at everything God is. Focus on His strength and all He is willing to do for you.
The weaknesses of the world are not your inheritance. Jesus did not come to earth, die on the cross, and rise again on the third day for you be weak and defeated. He went through all that to give you an inheritance–authority in this life–and His strength to rule over your circumstances.
In any area where you stumble, God is ready and willing to provide you with His strength. So the next time you find yourself confronted by your weakness and declare that when you are weak, He is strong!
