Are You Operating in Weakness or Strength?

Do you ever feel spiritually weak? If so, you are not alone. In fact, if anyone ever tells you otherwise, they are lying; if they seem otherwise, they are posing.

The church in Philadelphia was also weak, but in that weakness remained true to God and his word (see Revelation 3:8). This is most encouraging to all of us weak people.

A strong weakness may seem like an oxymoron, but it’ s not.  When we are weak, we can turn to God who gives us the strength we need. As Paul said, “When I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Corinthians 12:10).
