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.

  • Weakness causes you to recognize who holds your/our hand in times of adversity and our difficulties. Certainly it is not our power, but we can be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might!!! And we understand that wr are not strong in our might, nor our power, but by His Spirit, Amen
