Weakness

“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 Cor 12:9)

The author of Hebrews reminds us that when God sees those who have placed their faith in him he doesn’t see someone who is frightened, or who has sinned, or who makes mistakes. God sees there faith! 

Do not let your faults discourage you! Do not believe Satan when he tells you that you are unworthy when your faith fails at times. For in each one us something sinful can be found. 

Like you, my faith is halting and imperfect many times. However none of that changes how God sees us. God sees us as men and women of faith.

When our faith falters at times, when our faith is imperfect and incomplete Jesus intercedes on our behalf to God, his Father and our Father. Jesus says “I died for their imperfections, and faltering faith.” And with great joy God says, “Yes! Because, I raised you, Jesus, my son, from the dead, I find no fault in these my precious children!” 

Hear the words that God has to say to you today … “I find no fault in you!”

Do not be discouraged!

Press on in faith!

God sees you and I as living stories of God’s power. Stories that bring renewed confidence to the people around us, and to future generations of God’s grace and forgiveness. 

Since God sees no fault in you faithfully fulfill the calling God has placed in your heart! 

Continue to be a faithful husband or wife! Continue to be a faithful worker, manager, student, entrepreneur, student, or author! 

May many people be inspired as your life story demonstrates God’s ability to turn weakness into strength and to deliver in times of need!

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. (Heb 4:15)

Prayer Gracious Father, thank you the gift of faith. Thank you that your grace is sufficient for me. May your power rest upon me so that I might faithfully fulfil the calling you have placed on my heart. Amen.

Blessings
