Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:10 (NKJV)
World Changer: All born again Christians can embrace this beautiful scripture because that is God’s heart when He looks to each one of His children, of those chosen that He predestined and who opened their hearts to their Creator and received Him as a beloved Father.
God wants us to understand that the ransom of our life was paid with a very high price because it was the precious blood of His Son Jesus Christ and that is why those of us who now serve the Lord, we need to understand His eternal purpose so that we are not entertained in pleasures and temporary things of this life and of course that to achieve it we will need the grace of God acting in us.
Apostle Paul begged three times to God so that he would take away a weakness that he had, but God answered that he would not do it, that he would leave it in the life of Paul, so that this Apostle would understand that in his weakness, God was going to glorify himself. So he could live in peace trusting in God’s power and purpose for him (2 Corinthians 12: 1-10).
*Also in our weakness we will need of God’s grace tu fulfill His eternal purpose to receive Jesus’s holiness in us and to be able to walk in the process of sanctification that starts since the day of our conversion.
So no one trust in their own strength or talents to obey God, because we will be what He wants by His grace. Today is your day of salvation if you have not yet surrendered to Jesus (Romans 10: 8-13).
May God’s grace allow Christ to always be our only hope of glory and our victory to change the world (Colossians 1:27, 1 Corinthians 15:10, 57). Hallelujah.
