Weakness And God’s Grace

by Hazel Straub

Where is your focus? Do you mull on and worry about all your problems or do you look at the Lord, with thankfulness? Flying on an aircraft at 35,000 feet, your point of view is much different than viewing things on the ground level. In the same way, God’s grace gives us his empowerment, despite our weaknesses. In his presence we get the ability to go through the difficulties and gain a different perspective. Our issues do not disqualify us. God asks for our surrender to him and he gives us his grace through Christ, despite our weaknesses. Thank God for his grace!

Three times I pleaded with the Lord to relieve me of this.  But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me. So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my love for Christ—I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power. (2 Corinthians 12:8-10 TPT)

  4. It’s such a relief to remember that we don’t have to get through things in our own strength.
