The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

When I Am Weak, Then I Am Strong

“Therefore I am well content with weakness, with insults, with distress, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10 (NASB)
When the believer feels he is strong, he is weak. But when we face the fact of how weak we are and how totally dependent upon Christ we are, then His strength is imparted to us. The heavier the trials and the more we feel the need of divine power and grace, the more grace we will receive from the Lord and the more we will trust in His grace and strength rather than in our own ability.
The Christian is on dangerous ground when he feels that he can fight the battle in his own strength, that he himself is strong enough to live the Christian life. We are not strong enough. We must depend upon the strength of the Lord. We must trust in the power of God. We must walk by faith.
