Turning Your Weakness into Strength!

When we are going through tough times, it can be so hard to feel strong. It seems like everything we face tries to get us to quit or just give up. We began to feel depressed,

, fearful, trapped, and helpless. And being strong is not on the top of the list.

However, I am finding out more and more that the opposite is actually happening. Whenever, we go through seasons of feeling weak and discourage. That is the time when God is doing His greatest work in us and through us! When we yield to him in those moments, he shows us that we are stronger when we are weak!  We are gaining ground, when we feel like quitting! We are actually succeeding, when we feel like we are failing! Hallelujah!

In 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 Paul said…“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. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in the insults, in hardships,in persecution, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong“.

God is saying, I want to use your weak places. My power is stronger when you are weak. It’s not in your strenghts, but it’s in your going through. Paul was revealing to us….When times are hard, that’s when God stands up in us. When we face persecution, that’s when the anointing shows up. When they talk about us, he shows forth his power. When we are at our lowest, we are at our best!  So, I encourage you. The next time you experience a season of weakness, know that God’s power is resting upon you. And that’s the time when you are STRONG!
