YOUR KINGDOM COME
We are spending this time examining the spiritual discipline of prayer. God uses the spiritual discipline of prayer to cultivate Christ in us. Prayer is real, personal communication with the God of the universe. Is prayer a defining characteristic of your life? Walk with us through this study and dust off your prayer life.
Devo from Mallory Galloway
“He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NIV
How often are we taught that there is no room to show our weakness? Oh, you’re having a hard time? Just rub some dirt on it and shake it off. You’ll be fine. Oh, you’re exhausted and don’t think you can keep going? Too bad. You have to wear yourself even more thin and just make things happen. It’s so backwards! We live in this non-stop, no-weaknesses-allowed kind of world. And it doesn’t make any sense.
When we can acknowledge our own weaknesses, we simultaneously acknowledge that we cannot do everything on our own and that we need God’s help. Acknowledging your weaknesses makes room for God to show His perfect power in our lives.
It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to grieve. It’s okay to be frustrated that you’re going through a hard time. It’s okay to be tired. It’s okay to face difficulty. And not only is it okay, but we should boast in those moments of weakness. Why? Because when we boast in our weakness, we glorify God and allow His power to sustain us. For His power is made perfect in our weakness.
There is no need to act big and bad. We aren’t supposed to hold in all our emotions or feelings. We aren’t supposed to act like we aren’t going through hardships. We aren’t supposed to hide these things at all. Because when we boast in our weakness and acknowledge that we need God’s power to sustain us, He never leaves us hanging. Never once has He made His children walk alone in life. He is going to sustain you and walk through your moments of weakness with you. He is going to uphold you, always. Because that is how good of a Father He is.
So, boast in your weakness today and lean into the power of God. For it is the only power that will get you through this crazy thing we call life.
