My Weakness + God = ...

...P O W E R !  💪

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 says "But He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.  Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may reside in me.  So I take pleasure in weaknesses, insults, catastrophes, persecutions, and in pressures, because of Christ.  For when I am weak, then I am strong.'"

Okay, this is magical!

It's hard to believe at first glance that this can actually be true.  But I am telling you I've experienced it first hand, and I've found it to be miraculously, exactly true.

The areas in my life I have been weakest in, I am now strongest in.  BECAUSE where I am weak, I look to Christ more to find strength.  I pray about it.  I count on God to help me in my weakness.  And also, bottom line,  the places where I am weak I am very empty there... which gives my Father in heaven more room to fill HIS power up right exactly there!

SO...TAKE PLEASURE in weaknesses, insults, catastrophes, persecutions, and in pressures today because it's in these exact places that CHRIST'S POWER will RESIDE in you and me both! 

This is magical!

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
— Ephesians 6:10
