Power in Weakness – God’s Word Today & Thought to Ponder
God’s Word Today:
2 Corinthians 12:9 NCV
But he said to me, “My grace is enough for you. When you are weak, my power is made perfect in you.” So I am very happy to brag about my weaknesses. Then Christ’s power can live in me.
Thoughts to Ponder:
Our text reminds us that we can’t overcome in this life by our own power.
We have to recognize that we are not capable on our own.
We need Jesus close-by to be conquerors in this life.
It’s then only then, we can shine our light for others.
A song that closely tells us this truth is a great prayer as well.
Just A Closer Walk with Thee
I am weak but Thou art strong;
Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
I’ll be satisfied as long
As I walk, let me walk close to Thee.
Just a closer walk with Thee,
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,
Daily walking close to Thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
2 Thro’ this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee. [Refrain]
3 When my feeble life is o’er,
Time for me will be no more;
Guide me gently, safely o’er
To Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore. [Refrain]
