Precious Promise #16: II Cor. 12:9

Do you feel helpless? Do you feel powerless? Do you feel weak? That's exactly where you need to be!!

It is in our weakness that God's power works best. His grace is enough. It's all you need!!

Do not seek more control, more power, more of what you can do. Seek Him alone and watch what He will do!

II Corinthians 12:9
(NLT) "Each time he said, 'My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.' So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me."
(MSG) "'My grace is enough; it's all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.' Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ's strength moving in on my weakness."

What promise have you been reminded of?

    My oldest has certainly reminded me this week of my weakness and lack of ability to control!  He also drives me to my knees asking God to be my strength and his healing!

    As you are in this place of recognizable weakness on your knees, may you find HIM alone to be your strength made perfect through Him!  Blessings, hugs, and continued prayers friend!

  3. I am horrible at grabbing back control because I hate the feeling of being powerless.  I'm still learning this one all the time.

    Feeling weak leaves me feeling vulnerable, and that causes me to grasp again for control.  Like you, learning this one all the time!  Giving it back over, and over, and over again.


Thank you for taking a moment to stop and chat. I enjoy the presence of you!
