It just doesn’t make sense!

(Apostle Paul is talking)  

Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time He (Jesus) 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. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. FOR WHEN I AM WEAK, THEN I AM STRONG.”  (2Co 12:8-10 NLT)

“WHAT!?! How can that be? That means, Jesus Christ wants me WEAK ‘BEFORE’ He can make me STRONG, it just doesn’t make sense.”  

Slow down cowboy!  We have a great little thing called the Bible. If we can slow down and read the ‘message’ again, we will find our answer. 

“So now I AM GLAD TO  BOAST about MY WEAKNESSES, so that the power of Christ can work THROUGH ME. That’s why I TAKE PLEASURE in MY WEAKNESSES, and in the INSULTS, HARDSHIPS, PERSECUTIONS, and TROUBLES  that I SUFFER  for Christ.”

                  ‘FOR WHEN I AM WEAK, THEN I AM STRONG.’ 

In Him,
