“For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.” 2 Corinthians 13:4
If God’s strength is made perfect in weakness, then He has a lot of opportunity to show Himself strong in this day in time. Many of us are at our wits end. Barely hanging on by a thread. We have come to an end of ourselves and have nothing left. We have been broken beyond belief and our pride has been crushed. And just like someone says, “Stay right there. Don’t move a muscle.” That’s what God is saying to His church today, “Stay right there. Don’t move a muscle.” We are now all ears and are in perfect position to receive an abundance of grace. We are right where He’s been trying to get us to be–in that broken place of humility. Not for one day, or two, but from this point on.
Who will God use in a mighty way in these last days? Not those who think themselves wise. Nor those who think themselves strong. It will be those who know “I am what I am by the grace of God.” It will be those who can take no credit for themselves, because they know if it had not been for the Lord on my side where would I be. God will supernaturally turn your weakness into strength and you will be a mighty force against the kingdom of darkness. “The weak will confound the mighty” God says. You may not feel strong right now, but that’s ok, “Stay right there! Don’t move a muscle.” Your weakness is the entry point to God’s great and mighty grace flood.
Prayer: Thank you Father God for speaking to my heart by Your Spirit. Yes, I have reached an end of myself. I can’t do anything without You. I need to hear Your voice. I need Your strength. I need Your grace. I can’t make it without You Lord. Activate Your power in my life. Build me up in my inner man. It’s in You I live, move and have my being. I yield to You. Be glorified in me God. Please flood my life with Your grace. And when you do, help me remember to give You every ounce of the glory due Your name. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
