2 Corinthians 12:9
And he hath said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my power is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
His power is made perfect in weakness.
When a barren old couple suddenly conceives …
When a man rises from prison to become Pharaoh’s right hand man because of dreams he interprets …
When a shepherd boy kills a gigantic war veteran …
When a carpenter becomes the greatest teacher Israel has ever seen …
When an execution tool that extinguishes life, becomes the symbol of God’s hope and promise of eternal life for all of mankind …
Oh yes indeed.
He loves to show His power when we are at our weakest.
When it looks like it’s inconceivable that any glimmer of hope might still exist- God comes and does the impossible.
Then glory isn’t given to one’s body or abilities or accomplishments.
It’s not possible that any of these created the miracles we note in the above cases.
The answer is clear.
The direction our praise and thanksgiving should go to, is also clear.
It’s God who did it and who deserves the praise and glory.
