Therefore, I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10

We all need power in our lives, but true strength does not come from relying on our own capabilities but on Christ. When Paul prayed for his “thorn in the flesh” to be removed, the Lord replied saying, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9). God allowed this weakness in Paul’s life so that Christ might be seen as strong on Paul’s behalf.

So, why do we have weaknesses? Sometimes, it is to keep us humble. It is very easy to take credit for the good things that happen in our lives. Another reason is to sense the power and strength of God. Our weaknesses make us reliant on God’s strength and power to help us complete a task that might seem impossible. The third reason for our weaknesses is that it is a testimony to others of what God can do if we let him. For when we are weak in our own abilities then we become strong in the Lord and in the power of HIS might.

Whatever weakness we are experiencing today, whether physical or spiritual, let us pray that God will keep us humble and relying on Him for everything. Let us allow God to make us and mold us and in the process use our weakness to show others HIS strength in our lives.

    This is exactly the situation where I am now .. I thought I’m weak .. but now I understood since I’m weak I’m trying to humble myself , I’m relying on God more than my own strength and I’m sure Godwill turn my weak situation into great testimonies .. I’m weak but I have been made to trust my saviour more and more 🙂
