Topic: OUR WEAKNESSES ARE GOD’S RAW MATERIALS 1
Bible Reading: 2 Corinthians 12:8-9
📖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.”
🔥God is a mystery that can neither be understood nor fathomed. No one has conclusively understood Him…except in obedience. When you live in obedience unto God and the lines are falling in pleasant places, it looks like you understand God totally. But the truth is that, your obedience has turned your weaknesses into strength by God. Paul complained to God about a weakness he had in 2 Cor 12:8-9, so that God would take it away and make him perfect, but God replied that if He did not see any weakness in Paul, He wouldn’t be able to manifest His Almightiness through him.
🔥🔥This shows that the relationship we have with God called Christianity, is an exchange of strength with weaknesses. Faith is the contribution of weaknesses by man to God at the meeting place called the Cross, which is attainably referred to as the Church; while God brings in His strength to the Cross, but Church meeting. Because God is the Elohim (Triune Creator), He will lose nothing exchanging his strength with our weaknesses. While we lose our weaknesses to Him after the meeting, He returns with newly created strength from our praises, worship, adoration, glorification, and so on; as He receives our weaknesses.
🔥🔥🔥This makes our appreciation of him in prayers, praises and thanksgivings, His raw materials for future blessings for us…Joshua 6:20-21, 2 Chro 20:22-24, Acts 16:25-26. So, as believers in the omnipotence, omnipresence and omniscience of God, we don’t need to feel too weak to be used of God. If you convert your weaknesses to praises, you have just produced raw materials for God to inject strength into you with. Keep praising and thanking, to keep receiving strength from God.
🙏Omnipotent Father, turn my weaknesses into victorious strength as I follow you obediently, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Heavenly Father, as I meet with you in the Church, at the behest of the Cross, exchange my weaknesses with your strength, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Thank you Father, for using my praises, worship, and general services to you, as raw materials to produce strength for me, in Jesus’ name.
