Strength. We all battle with the need to be “strong”. More importantly how do we even define strength? Often times the moment we reveal weakness we are considered “weak”, yet revealing weakness doesn’t mean we are weak it means we are flawed. We lack. We do not have it all together and that is perfectly fine. Strength doesn’t always look like we picture it to be. It takes more strength to admit you are weak then to boast of strength that is non-existent.
Where am I going with all of this you ask? Well… if we had it all together all the time we wouldn’t need anyone. We would be self-sufficient. Meaning we wouldn’t need God. Weakness is merely an indicator that we need God. We are lost cause without a savior. He fills in the gaps that we as imperfect humans cannot fill.
Submit your weakness to him. Kneel all your pride at his feet. Recognize you can’t live another day without His guidance. When we admit we are weak, we then find miraculous strength in Him. Then our pride cannot control us no longer and our faith in Jesus becomes the anchor of our lives.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV
He makes you strong!
