Reminded

I'm reminded of this, which I'm sure I've posted before…and I'm sure most of you have read before…but it never hurts to be gently reminded:)

2 Corinthians 12:9 (The Message)

7-10Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn't get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan's angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn't think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me, 

   My grace is enough; it's all you need. 
   My strength comes into its own in your weakness.

Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ's strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.

    Hey Kim, great reminder that our strength for anything comes from Him! There is this song that reminds me of this. I can’t remember who sings it or the title but I do remember this one line and it says,”when you see me on my knees it’s not because I’m weak I’m getting stronger”…how true!
