PostSubject: His Strength in our Weakness   Wed Jul 30, 2014 2:57 pm

...Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 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.      

When we are young, we don't see our weaknesses very well. If we go back to our teen years we may even recall feeling invincible. But our weaknesses seem to be ever before us as we age, don't they? We all - young people, too - have "thorns" in our flesh. Some are from other people who harass us or persecute us; others are physical ailments or heartaches. Whether our "thorns" are sent directly by a messenger of Satan or are a result of our sin, they can be a severe but humbling load.

In one way or another, the toxic by-products of this sinful world affect us all. Like Paul, we want the things that hurt and vex us to go away. As Christians. we must lay our burdens before the Lord again and again. We begin to wonder if He is hearing us at all. As with Paul, sometimes the Lord's answer to our plea is "No." But it may be through this very hardship that the Lord is shaping us, causing us to truly understand along with Paul that "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Hold on; He cares for you!

Insight: Remember what 1 Corinthians 1:27 states too: But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. Ever feel foolish or weak? Trust in the Lord your God to use it to shape you, strengthen you and make you "His Shining Light" to the (seemingly) strong in this world!

Dear Lord, Please help me to remember that Your grace is sufficient for matter how weak or foolish I may be...for Your strength makes us all strong. In Jesus' Name, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
