“God’s Strength Revealed In Our Weaknesses!”(II Cor.11:21b-12:10).
The long public prayers of the Pharisees which Jesus challenged is very much in vogue in God’s house today. The pride with which we list our achievements in the guise of being visionaries is worst that those long public pharisaic prayers.
Boasting about our achievements in the service of the Lord is not what we should be proud of. Boasting is an advertisement of our strengths, abilities and capabilities in a lizard-like manner.
When we show strength it means we are self-sufficient. It is like saying, “without God we are something,” whereas in truth, without him we are nothing.
God himself has a way of humbling us, such that he places upon us certain defects and will not take it away, no matter how much we plead with him to relieve us of such burdens.
Instead, when we are hard-pressed he assures us, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
When we boast in our weaknesses, Christ’s power rests on us.
My Christian pilgrim progress has led me to this acceptance: “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.”
The shoulder cannot grow above the head. The Lord Jesus Christ whom we follow talked about his suffering and eventually underwent it. He suffered many things, he was rejected and killed, but that was how he became the Christ. We too must deny ourselves, carry our own crosses and follow him.
In the service of Christ we have to learn the secret of being content in every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” Our affirmation should be, “I can do everything through him who gives me strength”(Phi.4:12-13).
If God’s grace is sufficient for you, it will lead you through the valley of the shadow of death and you will fear no evil, for the LORD will be with you.
Submit your weakness to the LORD and he will be your strength through all tribulations, trials and temptations. Be steadfast till you get to the finish line.
Sunday prayer: Lord Jesus Christ thank you for being my strong deliverer as I wade through the murky waters and enticements of life. Amen!
Have a blessed Sunday! Peace be with you!
Rev Babila Fochang.
