Finding Pleasure in Weakness
by PamFord Davis
1/07/2016 / Devotionals
Why do I assume that weakness equates failure?
When I admit my weaknesses, I exhibit strength of character.
Through weakness, I find supernatural strength.
Consider the compelling testimony of Apostle Paul.
"But He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.' Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may reside in me. So I take pleasure in weaknesses, insults, catastrophes, persecutions, and in pressures, because of Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 2:9-10 HCS)."
Consider some of the key words in his message grace, sufficient, power, weakness, boast, Christ's power, pressures, weak, and strong.
I am prone to see weakness as being negative and strength as positive. Paul's testimony opens new meaning to the key words. He found pleasure in weakness; he received God's strength.
Focus on another of his divinely inspired messages to believers.
"Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength (Ephesians 6:10 HCS)."
Amen and Amen.
