Made Strong in Christ Jesus

Made Strong in Christ Jesus

What do you think it means when we read in the Scriptures that when we are weak we are made strong?

As we are going through different levels of trials and tribulations, God is not only testing our faith and giving us the opportunity to call upon Him, He is refining us and making it known that without Him we are weak but with Him, there is nothing stronger.

2 Corinthians 12:9, “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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

Sometimes we do not want to admit that we need help or that we are weak. Our natural mind tells us that weakness or to be weak is seen as failing or being a failure. Our pride gets into the way if we do not want to be transparent with each other and just admit that we are weak in certain areas or had a weak moment.

When we backslide and do not wish to share that with fellow Christians to help in prayer about our backsliding, we are not following the advice and instructions given to us by Christ. Many times we are ashamed to even come to the feet of Jesus and lay our troubles on Him. We are not following the role models given to us by Jesus like the Apostle Paul and other disciples in the Bible. Let us be okay with our weaknesses and boast how when we are weak we turn to Christ to strengthen us.

2 Corinthians 12:10, “For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

Jesus Loves You!!!
Amen
