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. II Corinthians 12:9
"Christ is building His kingdom with earth's broken things.
Men want only the strong, the successful, the victorious, the unbroken, in building their kingdoms; but God is the God of the unsuccessful, of those who have failed.
Heaven is filling with earth's broken lives, and there is no bruised reed that Christ cannot take and restore to glorious blessedness and beauty.
He can take the life crushed by pain or sorrow and make it into a harp whose music shall be all praise.
He can lift earth's saddest failure up to heaven's glory."
"..and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:" Romans 1:25b-26
"…and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;" Romans 1:27b
So, let us glory in our brokeness.
When our strength has been set aside, God's mighty power may be clearly seen!
