When You Are Weakest, You Are Strongest


(Philippians 4:13 AMP- I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency.)

When we’re feeling troubled, weak, and torn or let down our first thought or initial assessment is usually not that we’re positioned in a place of eternal strength. In all honesty, our initial response emotionally is usually a sense of brokenness, hopelessness, and despair. But The Word of God says, when we’re at our lowest and weakest point, that’s when we’re able to truly experience the perfection that is His grace; that’s when we’re able too see the strength and glory of Christ come to fruition in it’s greatest form within our lives. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NOG- But He told me: “My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak.” So I will brag even more about my weaknesses in order that Christ’s power will live in me. Therefore, I accept weakness, mistreatment, hardship, persecution, and difficulties suffered for Christ. It’s clear that when I’m weak, I’m strong.)

I often tell people that they are gems in whom our God treasures, but I think more often than not they take it as just a kind gesture and not as the love and life that I speak it forth in faith over their lives as; not as a promise of truth that is to be sincerely embraced within their hearts. I don’t think they realize or understand that I say it because God has gifted us the treasure of Christ’s Spirit to live within our hearts and we then in turn radiate and glow of the very essence that is His beauty and majesty. (2 Corinthians 4:6-7 NLT- For God, Who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.)

Though Jesus endured brutal suffering, He overcame and conquered it all, even death itself. And He loves and values us so much that He chose to instill that same power within us by sending us His perfect Holy Spirit. My point is, there is nothing that shall come against us in this world that we don’t hold the power to conquer. God so treasures us that He allows us embody very the light, love, and life of Jesus within us ensuring that nothing will be too difficult for us to bear or too hard for us to endure and that we will always overcome victoriously through The Spirit of our Savior! (2 Corinthians 4:8-9 NLT- We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.)

Today, I pray over you and encourage you with my whole heart to take ahold of the truth of this great promise from our Heavenly Father: When you are at your weakest, you are at your strongest because The Spirit of Christ living on the inside of you will eternally be your strength!
