God's Power is made perfect in our weakness
Our Weakness Reveals God’s Character.
21 And he said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.”
Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
Our Weakness is for God’s Victory.
Our Weakness is for God’s Provision.
Our Weakness means Salvation.
5 They shall be like mighty men in battle,
trampling the foe in the mud of the streets;
they shall fight because the LORD is with them,
and they shall put to shame the riders on horses.
Our Weakness reveals the Gospel.
Where does that leave us?
The Lord has more need of our weakness than of our strength: our strength is often His rival; our weakness, His servant, drawing on His resources, and showing forth His glory. Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity; man’s security is Satan’s opportunity. God’s way is not to take His children out of trial, but to give them strength to bear up against it (Ps 88:7; Jn 17:15).
