But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
When we go through trials we often feel like we’re victims of some type of punishment, we can also feel like God is not listening. God’s grace is manifested in our weakness, when we’re stripped bare and our reliance lays strictly on His strength. At this point God can do great things, He is glorified in our living testimony.
Lord, help me to not focus on my situation when things get tough and help me to allow your strength to sustain me to your glory.
