Weakness is not a deal breaker

Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is fulfilled in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 2 Cor. 12:8-9

Nobody has a perfect life and nobody executes life perfectly. Everybody is dealing with something. Sometimes God uses His power to remove our weaknesses. Sometimes He empowers us to overcome our weaknesses. Sometimes He empowers us to accomplish things in spite of our weaknesses. Sometimes He empowers us to live in His love, grace, and peace in the shadow of our weakness and to accept the ways our weaknesses change our lives. The weaknesses we see in others and in ourselves is no indicator of the power of God working in our lives.

Lord, thank You that the power of Christ dwells in me.
