When I Am Weak, Then I Am Strong - 2 Corinthians 12:9-11

Last night as we gathered for Bible Journaling, there were a couple of our ladies who have experienced great loss, of a loved one, in their life. They were saying people will look at them and say, "You are so strong." and they would always reply, "No, I am not!" They went on to say how God had helped them through all they have gone through. I looked at these ladies and realized they are strong. 

These verses immediately came to my mind. 

2 Corinthians 12:9-11
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.

Shortly after this we received a phone call from some dear friends of ours, whose father had just passed away. As we went and sat with them and tried to offer some words of comfort I saw this verse above lived out in them. These dear people of God were suffering and are suffering over their loss but in their weakness I can see their strength. 

I'm not sure if I am at the point in my life where I can say, as Paul, that I delight in weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and difficulties but this I do know....No matter what I face I have this assurance that Christ is my strength! I need not fear or stress over my weaknesses because when I am weak He is strong and will uphold me and sustain me. I can stand on that truth today.
