But he said to me. “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is make perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weakness, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. “For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
Living in dependence on the Lord is a glorious adventure. Most people scurry around busily, trying to accomplish things through their own strength and ability. Some succeed enormously, others fail miserably. But both groups miss what life is meant to be: living and working in collaboration with the Lord.
When you depend on Him continually, your whole perspective changes. You see miracles happening all around, while others are only natural occurrences and “coincidences.’ You begin each day with joyful expectation, watching to see what the Lord will do. You accept weakness as a gift from Him, knowing that His Power plugs in most readily to consecrated weakness. You keep your plans tentative, knowing that the Lord’s plans are far superior. You consciously live, move, and have your being in Him, desiring that He lives in you. The Lord lives in you, He in you and you are in Him. This is the intimate adventure He offers to you.
Grace and Peace to You My Friends
