A word on weakness.
Contrary to what the world will try to tell you, your weakness is actually a gift.
In the Kingdom, it’s a key.
You see, it is through our humility and weakness, more than our accolades or strengths, that God demonstrates His strength and sovereignty.
So, whatever it is that broke you, if it has driven you to the feet of Jesus, praise God for that thing.
Be very thankful for it. It’s in our brokenness that we are driven to depend most on God.
And when we fully, desperately, wholeheartedly depend on God, everything changes.
*2 Corinthians 12:8-10
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.
But 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 weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties.
For when I am weak, then I am strong.
