Avenue to Power- A Devotional from a Man of God


I will boast in my infirmities, that the POWER of Christ may rest upon me .
Corinthians 12:9

The idea of surrendering to GOD can be seen in Paul's life as well . His surrender came after the problem - '' A thorn in the flesh '' had developed ( 2 Corinthians 12:7 ). Paul prayed repeatedly about this difficulty, pleading for the LORD to take it from him .

But God responded '' My grace is sufficient for you, My strength is made perfect in weakness '' (V9).

Understanding this, Paul adopted a positive view : '' Most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me .... For when I am weak, then I am strong'' (vs. 9-10).

In facing fears and struggles, it's vital that we yield totally to God. When we do, God can use our problems as an avenue for His power . Whenever life's burden's oppress you, and trials are too much to face, remember God's strength in your weakness; He'll give you His power and Grace. Wielding our power, is no substitute for yielding our will to God's power. End quote.

Oh look and see what the Lord has done! This is a word of encouragement, that my son in law, who is in prison, sent to me. He has been praying that the Lord would help him, put papers together, to share what He gives him, with his fellow inmates, who gather to Him daily for encouragement and advice.  The Lord is doing a mighty work through him.
The Lord has truly done a magnificent work in my son in law, a work that He can do in any who heed His voice. May you be blessed.
