Text: 2 Corinthians 12:8-10

📖8….For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
📖9….And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
📖10….Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”

Message:

🔥If you come to God with your own power, you will be disappointed because he doesn’t use an already made person; instead, he gives power to the faint that go to him, and increases the strength of those without might (Isaiah 40:29), if they come to him with their laziness to wait on him for remolding (Isaiah 40:31). So, anyone with God who is still fearful, and full of inadequacies, is often replaced by God with the bold, as Elijah was replaced with Elisha in 1 Kgs 19:14-16. What we call weaknesses, which often debar us from being faithful in God’s vineyards, are manures and veritable tools when handed over to God.

🔥🔥You can see in our main text taken from 2 Cor 12:7-10 that, the infirmities which Paul was scared of as some deterring clogs, became the magnetic forces that retained God with Paul. If there is no weakness in a place, God’s strength becomes irrelevant there. If God didn’t see the weakness of Samson when the lion roared against him in Judges 14:5, He wouldn’t have supplied him the Exousia that Samson used to defeat the lion in verse 6.

🔥🔥🔥Since the faith era, God has neither called the strong, nor used the powerful. He prefers to use the weak, hence he reduced Gideon’s army with 32,000 soldiers to 300 in Judges 7:2-7. God calls and uses people not because they are clever, talented, powerful or educated, but because they are available for Him. As a matter of fact, any time he calls the strong, before he uses them, he removes their strength…1 Cor 1:19, as he did to Jacob in Genesis 32:24-31. Child of God, instead of trusting in your abilities, expose your weaknesses to God, to manifest his strength from.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏Glorious Father, remove from me, every worldly qualification I have, that can puff me up, and replace it with your qualifications in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏O Lord, turn my weaknesses into divine clay and remold me with them into a vessel of honour for your own use in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏Thank you Father for using me as I am, to your glory in Jesus’ name.
