God’s Strength in our weaknesses

There is a popular slang use by so many believers and non-believers which says that “Heaven help those who help themselves,” but I have come to know that it is not true “Heaven can only help those who cannot help themselves” God loves to use weak people who cannot help themselves, but are willing to lay down their weaknesses and take upon themselves the strength of God. Even the bible says ; He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength ( human effort)  shall no man prevail. (1 Sam 2:9).

Everyone has weaknesses. In fact, I have a bundle of flaws and imperfections. The most important issue is what you do with them. Usually we deny our weaknesses, defend them, excuse them, hide them, and resent them. This prevents God from using them the way he desires. We think that God only wants to use our strength, but he also wants to use our weaknesses for his glory. The Bible says, “God purposely chose what the world considers weak in order to shame the powerful (1 Corinth. 1:27)Your weaknesses is not an accident. God deliberately allowed them in your life for the purpose of demonstrating his power through you.

God has never been impressed with strength or self-sufficiency He is drawn to people that are weak and admit it. Poor in spirit

Let me shock you a little, who made Judas Iscariot a treasurer of the ministry? Jesus of cause. Now think of it, Jesus gave an opportunity for greedy man to handle his ministerial money. Did Jesus not know that Judah had a problem with money? Certainly Jesus knew that Judas had a weakness. The book of John 12:6 tells us that he was a thief, but God still gave him responsibility and opportunity in that area to serve despite of his weakness. The question is does God want to set you up to fail?. WE WILL LOOK AT THIS IN OUR NEXT POST; Do well to visit https://www.erykingdomforum.org for more inspiring articles.

The Bible is filled with examples of how God loves to use imperfect, ordinary people to do extraordinary things in spite of their weaknesses. When you think of the limitations in your life, you may be tempted to conclude, “God can never use me” But God is never limited by our weaknesses. In fact, he enjoys putting his great power into ordinary containers(man). The Bible says, “We are like clay jars in which this treasure is stored. The real power comes from God and not us”

          All God’s giants were weak people

Moses weaknesses was his temper. It caused him to murder an Egyptian, strike the rock he was supposed to speak to, and break the tablets of the Ten Commandments. Yet God transformed Moses into the humblest man on the planet

Gideon’s weakness was low self-esteem and deep insecurities, but God transformed him into a mighty man of valor

Abraham’s weakness was fear. Not once, but twice, he claimed his wife was his sister to protect himself. But God transformed him into the father of those who have faith.

Impulsive, weak-willed Peter became a rock.

The adulterer David became a man after his heart and John, one of the arrogant sons of thunder became the apostle of love. (1 Sam 13:14; Mark 3:17) Respectively. The list could go on and on.

God specializes in turning weaknesses into strength He wants to take your greatest weakness and transform it. You need to come to Jesus just the way you are with a heart of humility and repentance he will accept you and give you a new life.

Jesus Christ is waiting for you. Shalom!
