The Peak of God's Power
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—2 CORINTHIANS 12:9.
We’re often our own worst enemy when it comes to suffering. Headaches and stress can be made worse by bitterness or anger, just as we can be injured in a car accident by choosing to disobey a signal or the law of the road.
A legitimate response to suffering is to examine ourselves before God to determine if we’re suffering because of personal sin. Or because of someone else’s sin.
But sometimes your suffering is no one’s fault. When Jesus’ disciples were sure a man’s handicap was someone’s fault, Jesus said, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, …this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life” (John 9:3).
God’s grace and power seem to reach their peak when we’re at our weakest. You can glory in your weakness, rejoice in your suffering, because it gives God opportunity to display His work in your life.
