In my weakness, HE is strong

22 Mar

Today I stumbled upon a tweet by John Piper that really got my attention. He wrote:

“I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

I’ve really been dwelling on this today. Sometimes life just hurts and things happen to us that we don’t understand. We think we would have been better off if those things had never happened, right?

I beg to differ.

In our weakness, HIS power is made perfect.

My grace is made sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.Ā 2 Corinthians 12:9

AND, we get to learn total dependence on the one who will never leave us nor forsake us. It is a sweet thing to think on. A trial can do so so so much good for your relationship with Jesus. He’s making you more like him, I promise…

    Yes – that is a good reminder, and it goes against our natural inclinations

    Awesome post today Jennifer… I enjoy John Piper’s writings and sermons, too. I also noticed that you have a heart for youth, and drink too much coffee. Me too! Blessings to you today…
