Weakness or Strength?

Do you ever feel spiritually weak?  If so, you are not alone.  In fact, if anyone ever tells you otherwise, they are lying; if they seem otherwise, they are posing.

The church in Philadelphia was also weak, but in that weakness remained true to God and his word. [See Revelation 3:8]  This is most encouraging to all of us weak people.

A strong weakness may seem like an oxymoron, but it’s not.  When we are weak, we can turn to God who gives us the strength we need.  As Paul said, “When I am weak, then I am strong.” [2 Corinthians 12:10]

So, despite our weaknesses, we can prevail by God’s strength.
