Sometimes I feel that I need to put on a happy face, quote the right scriptures, and say all of the things a follower of Christ is expected to say. I feel I have to be tough – because, of who I am in Him.
But, I don’t have to always be tough.
You don’t either.
As a matter of fact, God wants us to be WEAK. That’s right.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 says, “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. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses…For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
How stinkin’ cool is that? Not only can we kick it back all weak like, but Christ digs it. Because, our brokenness before Him makes His miraculous power perfect. And, EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED WHEN WE NEED IT.
I’m not suggesting that we aren’t strong in the Lord. But, I am suggesting that we realize our brokenness before Him. And, once we tire of fighting a battle that’s really not ours anyway, we become weak.
THEN, once we become weak, we will be made strong.
