Comparison latches onto to my heart this morning, trying to pull me under, “Why don’t you have the energy she has? Why can’t you do what she does?” An embarrassment only I feel, I wonder what is wrong with me.
Then Jesus whispers to me as I read His Word, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I must be going to be awfully powerful today, because I feel so awfully weak. I guess I am exactly where I need to be to get the supernatural help I need. “Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me…for when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 – 10
Maybe you too feel weak today. Maybe raising children has made you want to raise the white flag of surrender. Maybe yesterday no one in your house acknowledged it was Mother’s Day. Maybe the responsibilities you face this week seem bigger than the heart and strength inside your body.
You’re in the right place, my friend. It is here, when we are at our weakest, that He is at His strongest.
Jesus, Monday morning brings a new list of responsibilities and challenges. Help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that You and I can’t handle together. And not just handle, but conquer and have victory over. Amen
