2 Corinthians 12:9
And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee. My strength is made perfect in weakness.
I will happily boast about my weaknesses so God’s power may rest upon me.
I ask myself often, “What are you doing for Christ’s-sake?”
I cook, clean, and do all the seemingly menial tasks of being a wife and mother. Spiritually, I pray! and I pray and pray and pray. Because just as I sensed an urgent need in my days as a young mother to find the Lord, I now feel an urgency to pray for my prodigal children to find their way back to God. I also have a keen sense of running out of time. I’m begging the Holy Spirit to make Himself real to them now – – to bring back to their remembrance all of the “deposits” of scriptures they memorized when they were at home. I cling to verses about training up children so that when they are old, they will not depart from it. I teach those still at home to pay attention to what’s happening around them. Learn from others’ mistakes and know that all actions have consequences.
Working, praying, teaching, I still don’t feel it will ever be enough – – praise God that He will intercede for me in my weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9 And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
I will live for Him and no other.
I will seek Him daily and know that He is made strong in my weakness. His grace is sufficient
So I encourage you this day to:
Pray daily. Pray against indifference, discouragement, and compromise.
Take every thought captive. Thinking of the past allows the enemy to break down what you’re trying to rebuild. Leave no gap for the enemy. Pray with “your eyes open.” and Expect attacks.
Face obstacles courageously and trust God to help you overcome them. Pray and keep on working. Do not compromise and stop the work.
I vow and pray that God, by the Light of His Spirit, will show His loving and almighty will concerning me so that it will be impossible for me to be disobedient to His heavenly vision.
Oh Lord, my heart is glass, and you can see right through me. But I know that Your grace is sufficient for me, for, in my weakness, You are strong. I am humble before You and ask for Your strength to be compassionate to others this day. Allow me to see burdens transformed into blessings.
Please help me to be a godly visionary who sees the invisible, chooses the imperishable, and does the impossible. Help me measure my problems by the greatness of God, not by my weakness and inexperience. Please help me to stand by faith like Nehemiah and change my world.
