How God uses your weakness for His glory
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest
on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in
persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. - 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
A man lay seasick in his bunk one stormy night during a long voyage across the Atlantic. He
could hardly move from the severe discomfort. All of a sudden, he heard a cry of “Man
overboard!” from the deck above. His first thought was, God help that poor fellow – there’s
nothing I can do.
Then the thought struck him, There is something I can do. So he took his lantern and held it up to
the porthole next to his bunk. The drowning man was rescued, and the next day he recounted, “I
was going down in the darkness when someone put a light in a porthole. It shone on my hand and
a sailor in a lifeboat grabbed my hand and pulled me in.”
“I’m too sick...” “I’m too weak...” “I’m not able enough...” Very often, people who fail to
attempt anything for the Kingdom of God will use excuses like these. They see their weaknesses
as debilitating and never take the initiative to do what they can.
But weakness is no excuse for not putting forth all of the strength we have for God’s purposes.
And the truth is it’s in our weakness that God’s power is often shown the strongest. So whatever
situation you may be in today, put forth the effort to share Christ and watch how God will use
your weakness for His glory!
Pray that God would open your eyes to the ministry opportunities He’s placed around you – even when you face tough challenges.
Questions for Thought
In your life today, how are you tempted to let your challenges become excuses for not doing the ministry God has called you to do?
How might God use your challenges to make His name great in the world around you?
