Missions Update & Family Discovery Bible Study
2 Corinthians 12:7-10
or because of these surpassingly great revelations. 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. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
And when we start to move out, we all the sudden sense our weakness–and it’s at this moment God shows up in power.
Because when we ACT in our weaknesses, God also ACTS in our weaknesses!
1. It’s God’s desire that our weaknesses are surfacing. (12:7)
2. Our weaknesses teach us about God’s Grace (12:9a)
3. Our response in the face of weaknesses is the KEY that opens God’s intervention in our lives (12:9b-10)
What previously has made us fearful or ready to panic – no longer has influence!
- I will be glad in my weaknesses!
- I will glory in my weaknesses!
- I will MOVE OUT and ACT in my weaknesses!
- I will MEET GOD in my weaknesses!
