“My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
The definition of grace is the favor of God’s gift of good things which are not deserved, especially salvation. Did Jesus deserve to die on a cross for us? No. But did He? Yes. God has shown us grace through His son Jesus Christ in ways we cannot even begin to fathom or understand. Romans 3:23 says, “For we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” We know that we are not perfect. But despite our imperfections Christ still loves us unconditionally and covers us with his amazing grace.
We must remember that our weaknesses, while they are part of us, do not have to determine who we are or where we are going in life. It is what we do with our weaknesses that makes the difference. Do we give them over to God so that His grace and power can be perfected in us, or do we dwell on them, never seeking God but instead allowing these weaknesses to tear us apart? Which one sounds like a better choice to you? I urge you to choose the former of these choices. Let God's grace strengthen and empower you to overcome your weaknesses so that He may receive the greatest glory possible with each passing day.
