There are times in your life when you feel like you are in complete control. Its amazing that its during these times that usually things go out of control! God has a funny way of keeping us humble, it we don’t keep ourselves there. But its in these times when we are not in control, or in times when you feel completely broken that great things can happen!
Take a look at this from the pen of Paul:
2 Corinthians 12:7-10 (New International Version)
7To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9But 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. 10That 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.
Absolutely Amazing! Can we accept this? Can we accept that we are stronger when we completely rely on God? Can we accept not being in control? Can we be more glad in our weakness, in our hardtimes, in our difficulties?
Think deeply about this and see how this can transform you to be more dependent on Christ and less dependent on yourself.
Have a great (rainy) Wednesday!
