Today's Good News


10/20               2 Corinthians 12:9-10

9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. 10 That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.


It is difficult to understand this until you experience first-hand what Paul is saying. Christians are just passing through this world.  Whatever hardship that is faced is met by their faith and the power of God.  He will see us through.  Sometimes we will suffer deep loss and deprivation which results in our growing in Christ.  To see the unseen God in our heart and mind equips us to know Him better and know from experience what Paul is declaring here: whatever we face the Lord is with us and the more difficulty we face the greater we experience His power in us. Life is hard but Jesus is always victorious.
