“He gives power to the weak, And to those whohave no might He increases strength.” Isaiah 40:29NKJV
God’s Power Thrives In Your Weakness
The world acknowledges those who have great strengths and are able to stand on their own two feet. The world loves to showcase brilliant and independent minds and speak of their strengths and achievements giving them accolades and nobel peace prizes. It is the other way round with God.
While the world looks on the outside and acknowledge people, God rather looks on the inside and boost people’s confidence and support them to great heights. God chooses the foolish things of the world to surprise the wisdom of this age. What the world abandons, God takes, polishes, uses and showcase it and takes all the glory.
Infact, God does not want our strengths because it means nothing to Him. Man glories in his strengths and abilities but God loves to tap into our weakness and make people wonder how such a feeble weakling can rise to the top. That’s why God says ‘my strength is made perfect in your weakness’.
He makes grace available to the humble and takes a simple shepherd boy, David, who was rejected by his own father, to become king. He empowers him to kill Goliath and David acknowledges that it was God who did it and not himself. May God tap into your weakness and surprise you in a unique way.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your amazing love, kindness and tender mercies, I see day to day. I am happy, Oh Lord to know that in my weakness You give me strength and when I faint, Your power will always be available for me, thank You. You take the foolish and despised things of this world and make them greater, You are worthy of our praise, so that man will not glory in themselves but in You.Be praised forever and ever. In Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen!
