Finding Strength in Weakness

Finding Strength in Weakness
November 17, 2018

There was a situation several days ago where my finger was hurting. I thought to myself, how am I going to type for long periods of time if this persists. I tried some natural treatment, epsom salt soaking in water for 20 minutes and it gave some relief, but typing for long periods of time would make the pain come back.

Interestingly, I had a very unique week. I had one appointment call in and want to reschedule. I had one appointment that did not show up and these moments gave my fingers enough rest time to finish this week well. There is a passage in the Bible as I reflect upon this week that comes to mind:

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

It is in moments where we feel weak or limited when God shows us His sufficient strength and grace to make it through. Earlier this week I had no idea how I would make it, but somehow I finished well.

What strength or limitation do you feel is hindering you from thriving in what you do?


Father in Heaven, thanks so much for the reminder that You help us and walk with us in our weaknesses and limitations. As we surrender our weaknesses to You, moment by moment, Your strength and grace shows up in amazing ways. Please help us to trust in You that Your power would strengthen us in our daily lives.
