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 of my weaknesses, so that the power
of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Corinthians 12:9
father and his son were out working in the yard. The son, who was about 13 or
14 was trying to move a heavy rock from one place to the other. He was
straining and grunting and sweating, but he couldn't make the rock move.
dad stopped and watched for a moment. He
said, "Son, you're not using all the strength you have available to
young man determined to push harder, but still he couldn't make the rock
the father said, "Son, you're not using all the strength you have
son backed up and pushed again, but the rock stood still.
son was exasperated. He said, "Dad, I'm pushing as hard as I can. I don't
have any more strength to use."
father shook his head and said, "No, you haven't used all the strength you
have available, because you haven't asked me to help."
Are you feeling weak today? Be encouraged! Remember that God’s grace is sufficient for
you. Christ’s power is made perfect in your
weakness. All of the power of Christ is
available to you to accomplish any task He has given you or to faithfully face
any circumstance He allows in your life.
a great day, and keep moving forward!
