“Weakness Is Our Biggest Strength”

“Strength & Power is made in perfect weakness. Disease, addictions, spiritual challenges – all weaknesses that we cannot defeat on our own strength.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV) – 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.

“We try our own methods, remedies, and diets but our health does not improve. We think we can talk ourselves out of dependencies, but that addictive behavior just won’t leave. We might even commit to building our relationship with the Lord, but as soon as something goes wrong – we question His presence. All these things are our ’thorns in the flesh.’ Some of us have so much pride and are so stubborn that we will experience the pains of our thorns over and over and still not humble ourselves to receive that it takes more than our own strength to defeat the pain…it takes the power of God. Our biggest weakness is admitting we are to weak to remove these thorns on our own. But, MY GOD, when we humble ourselves and turn our weakness into the need of help from God – that my friend is when we feel His strength and power! That is when we will receive that He wants us to come to Him when we are in need. Let’s go from bad and boujee to humble and needy and know that the Lord wants us to remain in our weakness and dependent on Him. Know this, it is our thorns that perfect us so that His divine power can be revealed through the defeat of our weaknesses.” – #ToddCPittman
