Daily Devotional – Strengthened Weakness and Power

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from 2 Corinthians 12: 6-10. I still believe in God’s goodness and faithfulness. It doesn’t matter what stands in front of me!  

Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 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. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

God’s strength is evident in our weakness!

It is now that I feel God’s hand and comfort. I have drawn nearer to Him due to all that is around me. I wonder why I have been so distant recently? Why did I feel that I could manage on my own? I knew that God’s wind was behind me, pushing me along in the direction of His plans.

When faced with challenges and obstacles, I realize my size and inability. When it appears that the world is crashing around me and my life is held in the balance, I realize I weakness. In the same way, as me standing beside a car and not being able to lift it, so I am not able to remove the circumstances around me.

As I let go of it all, admitting to my weakness and disabilities, God is able to take control with His strength. His faithfulness and truth come to my rescue. No matter the past injustices and failures, God intervenes because of who He is. God stands behind and honors His promises from the dawn of creation.

Stand firm on the rock of Jesus! Know that your weakness does not limit God’s strength!

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Forgive me, God, for thinking that I have this. Thank You for reminding me of Your faithfulness and truth! I may not see the full picture, but I come back to believing You, trusting You and knowing that You are my strength!

In Jesus Name,
