But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. (2Cor 12:9 NIV)
Hey, come here just a minute; let me tell you some things about myself. I am weak! That's right, I don't have any strength. I can't do anything for myself. You might say I'm hopeless. I am lost as a sheep, weak as a wet noodle. My decisions are worthless. I have no sense of direction. I am easily distracted; readily confused. I couldn't find my way out of a paper sack. I would have a hard time getting water to bowl.
Yea, and guess what else? I'm proud of it! You heard correctly! I'm just tickled pink to be so empty......empty, worthless, ignorant, lost, weak, etc...without my JESUS!
You see, I can brag about having nothing, because when I am weak, then He is strong. His power is made perfect in my weakness. He really gets going when I can't (or won't) do anything for myself.
Oh sure, I know, I can do some things for myself. I have a good education, street smarts and practical experience, but when I compare my resume to His...well, let me put it another way...I CANNOT compare my resume to His! He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Creator, Sustainer, Designer, Planner, Orchestrator, Provider, Caretaker of EVERYTHING! I pale many times over in any attempt at comparison.
So, when I recognize that He is able...so much more than I could ever imagine, it is best if I just get out of the way! When I am the weakest, He is the strongest!
I feel kind of weak today. How about you?
Heavenly Father...we're ready now!
