comfortable with weakness

Ephesians 6:10 NLT

A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.


2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT

Each time he said, "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.


There are some people that we think are strong.  They are like a rock and so solid.  Yet if you peal back the layers of their confidence or persona, you will find some kind of fear and struggle.  Is that true of you?  I've learned through the years how to put on a good or strong face.


One of the things that is important to our church and to me is to be real.  As we are transparent with people we will connect more and be able to help others even more.


Think about this a little deeper.  When we are fake, we will crumble.  When are real, we will get stronger.  That is what God says in the verses above.  Lean on God.  Let Him be your strength. 


It is in God's power that we will get through.  It is in God's power that we will find victory and success.  Let all of the fake stuff and the lies be set aside and allow God's power to overcome your struggles and trials. 


I leave this week with this thought … God's power works best in my weakness.  I need to get comfortable in my weakness so God will stand out and get all the glory!
