Through Him July 19
2 Corinthians 12:9
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Jesus told Paul His strength is made perfect in weakness. Paul goes on to say that he would rather glory in his infirmities. Infirmities originated from the Greek word astheneia / as-then'-i-ah it means feebleness of body or mind, sickness or weakness.
I sometimes find myself praying to God for strength, when in fact, I should be praying to God to show His strength in my weakness. When we are young, there seems to be no mountain that we can’t climb, and slowly we start to realize that we can’t do everything in one day, that we can’t do the entire job by ourselves without help from others.
As you get older, you start to understand that weakness is an opportunity for God to show you Who He is. That’s why I always end every devotional with the name of God and the word Blessing’s.
His names are insights into His character, and by understanding His nature, He can reveal to you who He wants to be for you during trying times in your life. I use Blessing’s instead of Good-Bye because I want you to: Be Blessed, I add the apostrophe because it indicates possession, and I want you to possess all the Blessings of God!
With this knowledge and through His Strength, you will be made strong. Through His Strength you be made glad; through His Strength you will be able to lift your head up again.
