II Corinthians 12:9 ” But He said to me, ‘My grace is made sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.’ “

The great Theologian Charles Spurgeon once penned, “Great tribulation brings out the great strength of God.” But we don’t like to confess that we are indeed weak. That’s because in today’s world, weakness is looked upon with distain, but Paul reminds us in verse 10 of this Chapter that, “When I am weak, then I am strong.” In other words, our weaknesses can become a reason to rejoice, for we see Christ’s power at work in our life. And when suffering abounds, comfort from God abounds more…and in the midst of all our struggles, there can be the peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7)…our weakness driving us to seek Christ. And thus as we rely on Christ’s power & follow His example, we can face all circumstances that come into our life. For the grace of God can accomplish His plan & purpose despite any of our weaknesses… endowing us with strength & encouragement.
