In his song, Weak Man, Leeland Mooring repeated this line throughout: “I’ll be weak for You are strong.”
Dr. Travis Myers, professor of church history at Bethlehem College and Seminary, offers three ways in which God uses our weaknesses.
- Weakness reminds us that our life depends on God.
- Weakness reminds us that we deserve wrath, but receive grace.
- Weakness refines our trust in God’s providence.
Weakness can be a good thing. It is when you learn to say “I can’t” that you can experience a God who can.
Recover Step: The psalmist said, “He remembers that we are dust” (Psalm 103:14). Embrace your weakness as you embrace God’s strength.
