I’m thankful for my weaknesses

Strength in weakness

Jesus: strength in my weakness; lifter up of my head; he has made me glad.

1 Peter 3:18(KJV) “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit”.

If I look over my life on any given day, I would blush to consider the life style I had before giving it to God; no, I lie, even after giving my life to God, I had some questionable behavior as well.

I regret getting involved in some of those behaviors, but I’m not going to beat myself up over it. I would rather dwell on the fact that as humans we tend to falter and fail, but the focus is getting up, running as far away from those things which can be detrimental to one’s faith.

Every day you live, things might arise which might move or shake you from your path, but the integral part of this walk is keeping a focused eye upon Jesus. The Apostle Paul mentions a certain affliction he dealt with which perplexed him no end and he cried out for it to leave him and when He went to God so many times to get it out of his flesh, the response was, “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me (2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV).

I would not dare to presume on my strength as an individual as being the rationale for me overcoming some things I have been confronted with on a major scale, but I would bow my head down and lift up praises to Jesus for all His sacrifice has made possible for me. I actually am thankful for all the filth in my life, which enables me to see the purity of Christ. I glory in beating down my ego, for with that I think I can acknowledge that Jesus is lifted up.

Let the pride, ego, allow the swell headed attitude I am capable of take a back seat for if left up to me, I would think myself something, when in reality, I do nothing, but the strength and power of the cross has done it all for me.

I’m happy for that man Jesus; I confess my weakness from every bad habit and proclivity I am prone to engage in. I guess what I am saying really is that I am glad for my filth, it makes me know who I am.

Trivia: A set of ladies approached Moses to have certain laws overturned and succeeded in their petition. What are their names?
