AVENUE TO POWER
I will boast in my infirmities, that the POWER of Christ may rest upon me .
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.
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.
