2 Corinthians 12:9 Each time He said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. 10 That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Paul says a great deal here, about the attitude we must take in our daily walk, and our weaknesses. First, God is ALWAYS with us, including when we are struggling, be it a physical struggle, or financial, emotional ~ you name it, God is there! If you are faithful to seek Jesus in times of pain, of weakness, you will learn to “take pleasure” in your weakness; for in your weakness, GOD is strong! When we can learn to give God glory and praise, even through the darkest of storms, we become victorious THROUGH JESUS CHRIST! Then, in Christ we may boast: a testimony of how He helps us to overcome our trials.
Do not be scared into submission. Do not allow Satan to have the win. When you feel you cannot move forward, ask Almighty God to BE your strength. Rebuke Satan's efforts to sabotage God's work. Bind fear, worry, doubt, anxiety, anger, and other destructive emotions, in Jesus name. Ask God to pour His grace into your life, so that you may boast in HIS VICTORIOUS NAME, the name above all names, the LORD of Hosts, Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Our Savior, Jesus Christ!
