In today’s society we often find ourselves drawn to those that we deem to be strong. Someone we feel who embodies great strength; whether it be natural, physical strength or someone who embodies great inner strength.
God is not attracted to our strength, but rather to our weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9 (KJV) 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.
It is only when we realize that we are nothing and He is everything will we realize where our true strength and our potential in this life comes from.
Here are three things we should ask God every day:
1. Search me.
Ask God to search every corner and corridor of your heart. Seek out those things we have hidden and remove them.
2. Mold me.
Ask God to mold you into the Christian He would have you to be.
3. Use me
Have a willing heart. Ask God to use you in anyway He feels.
God will never ask you to do something without giving you the strength to do it with.
We must remember that weakness is not laziness. Laziness is a sin and God is not attracted to sin.
