Dependence on Christ

Description

It is foolish to rely on the weakness of the flesh when we can walk in the power of Christ who lives in us.

As I turn from dependence on myself to dependence on Christ, I discover His power in my life.
 
Your grace is sufficient for me,
for Your power is made perfect in weakness. 
Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 
Therefore, I can be content in weaknesses,
 in insults, in hardships, in persecutions,
in difficulties, for Christ’s sake. 
For when I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:9-10).

Lord God,

Teach me to realize that Your grace is always sufficient for me.  It is foolish to rely on the weakness of the flesh when I can walk in the power of Christ who lives in me.  May I discover His strength by acknowledging my weakness, even in those areas in which I am tempted to think I am competent.

Amen.
