Our Weakness, God’s Platform
I’ve not been able to sleep one minute since my pain injection this morning. However, I’m finally getting more comfortable with my nighttime medications digesting. I’ve been trying all I can to put finishing touches on my Christmas Eve message for this Sunday. Preaching to a couple hundred folks is not something I ever take lightly. All I desire is to be a vessel that God spreads His good news through.
Lord knows Satan is fighting me constantly. He knows if people hear and receive the truth about Jesus their hearts will be changed forever. Practically every week of this entire year I’ve had to fight my way through the wilderness of pain and fogginess. Nothing has come easy, yet God continues to be faithful.
I have no doubt that God has and is using my pain as a platform for many a message. All I can do is trust God to do this week what He has already done the past 50 weeks of this year. I’m thankful that in our undeniable weakness God is able to display His unbelievable power.
“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. 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.
