Weak but Strong

But he replied, “My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak.” So if Christ keeps giving me his power, I will gladly brag about how weak I am. Yes, I am glad to be weak or insulted or mistreated or to have troubles and sufferings, if it is for Christ. Because when I am weak, I am strong.

(2 Corinthians 12:9-10 CEV)

I know very few people who are willing to admit their weaknesses. Yet it’s through our weakness that the divine power is mostly displayed. This is what Paul discovered during his time of weakness. When he desperately pleaded with God to remove his “thorn in the flesh,” he heard God’s reassuring voice, “My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak.” Therefore, Paul could boast all the more gladly about his weaknesses, knowing that when he was weak, he was strong. No matter what weakness you may have, remember that God’s power is made perfect in weakness, and that when you’re weak, you’re strong.

God proves Himself strong through our weakness.
