For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Cor. 12:10)
There is no question of our weakness. Whether entangled by sin or praying for one who is--
We are all weak.
Yet, Paul states when we’re weak, that’s when we’re strong.
Maybe it’s when we are truly at a loss—
When there is nothing we can do because we don’t have the strength or the power.
When all is out of control in the depths of confusion—wondering how on earth we are who we are and what we are—
Then, it is time to open empty hands to Heaven and proclaim, “God, I am weak; if you do not help me, no one can.”
No one else has the power to lift us,
to cleanse us,
to comfort us and give us peace.
And it’s when we realize that we are truly weak and cry out to God—
Then, and only then,
we are strong.
