“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 about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me” 2 Corinthians 12:9, NIV.
As I laid my head on the kitchen table one morning, I confessed to God that I didn’t feel like praying. It wasn’t that I didn’t love Him, but I felt as though I had no energy left to press into Him like I usually do. Right there as I poured out my heart before my loving Father, He began to strengthen me.
God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness. So there’s no need for us ever to pretend that we’re not weak and needy of Him. Let Him be your strength. Let Him give you the spiritual boost you need to go on.
Thank the Lord that He hears the faintest cries and He lifts us. He is a good God who is faithful to give us the grace we need right when we need it. Pour out your heart to Him and let Him renew your strength today.
When you are weak, my friend, He is strong.
Prayer: Father God, I bless you for your goodness and your faithfulness. When I don’t feel like praying, thank you that you’re not mad. You know my need, and you meet it every time. Thanks for loving me the way you do. I need you more than anything. I receive your strength right now. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
