Strength Through Weakness

Manna For Today: Thursday, August 9, 2018
Wake up every morning, look at yourself in the mirror and know that because of Jesus, you are looking at a winner!

II Corinthians 12:7-10Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn’t think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me, My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness. Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.

What issue in your life could be viewed as a gift that you may have felt was a burden?

Practice the following:

Know that wherever you may be in life, His grace is enough.

• Allow Christ’s strength to come into its own in your weakness.

• No longer allow yourself to focus on any handicap.

• Take your limitations in stride.

• Let Christ take over.

Practice these things and experience His grace!

Peace and blessings!
