2 Corinthians 12:9-10 “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”‭

Have you ever noticed when a major problem comes into our lives that’s out of our control, we tend to go to God? The world looks at going to God during troubling times as a sign of weakness because we can’t handle the situation on our own, but the Word of God lets us know that’s when we’re at our strongest.

When we face negative situations, sicknesses, and persecution, that’s when we’re at our strongest because we’re totally relying on God. A lot of us heard the lie that “God helps those who help themselves.” God was helping us when we couldn’t help ourselves.

God didn’t create us to go through life using our limited wisdom, resources, and skills. The pattern God established since the beginning of time was for mankind to totally depend on Him. When we’re totally dependent on Him and not ourselves, we’re at our strongest because we’re using His unlimited power and infinite wisdom during times of turmoil.

Stop trying to handle life’s situations on your own. Maximize your strength by totally relying on God.
