Weakness and Trials
by PamFord Davis
6/16/2015 / Devotionals
Paul was a proud man. That adequately describes the Apostle Paul. I don't want you to get the wrong impression; he was not arrogant or boastful about his natural abilities or encounters with Christ Jesus.
Not at all, he was a man of great humility. He boasted about his weaknesses and trials.
"And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure . For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, 'My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.' Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak , then am I strong (2 Corinthians 12:7-10 KJV)."
Oh, how the present day church needs Christ's power to rest upon us!
'LORD, rend our hearts to discern weakness as the entryway to your perfect strength.'
