If you’re suffering, don’t be ashamed. Praise God that He has chosen you to be a demonstration of His strength!
God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things — and the things that are not — to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. 1 CORINTHIANS 1:27 – 29
The apostle Paul pleaded with the Lord to take away his “thorn in the flesh” three times. Instead, the Lord answered, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
Weakness gives God opportunities to display His strength … His glory. What kind of weakness has caused you to suffer? Weak health? Weak finances? Weak family relationships?
Could it be God has given you a platform from which you can be a witness of His strength, His power and grace to those who are watching? If you’re suffering, don’t be ashamed. Praise God that He has chosen you to be a demonstration of His strength! Our ultimate aim in life is not to be healthy, wealthy, or problem free. Our ultimate aim is to bring glory to God. So … delight in your weakness!
