Why Do I Feel Weak & Strong
2 Corinthians 12:8-10 – (8) Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. (9) Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. (10) Therefore I am content with weaknesses, with insults, with troubles, with persecutions and difficulties for the sake of Christ, for whenever I am weak, then I am strong.
YOU have more potential in you than you realize!
What do you do when you think you’re all washed up?
John 7:5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 – (9) Each time he said, My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness. So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. (10) Thats why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
With God your weakness becomes strength.
Jesus can take you, however messed up you may be, and work a work of grace in your life that will become a wonderful display for his love and power!
John 1:11-12 – (11) He came unto his own, and his own received him not. (12) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Hebrews 11:32-34 – (32) And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: (33) Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, (34) Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
I Corinthians 1:25-29 – (25) This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and Gods weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength. (26) Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the worlds eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. (27) Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. (28) God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. (29) As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.
2 Corinthians 12:8-9 – (8) Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. (9) Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best (is made perfect) in weakness.”
