And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. — 2 Corinthians 12:9
weakness: an inadequate or defective quality, as in a person’s character; slight fault or defect:
Weakness as defined above really describes all humans in the flesh. We are flawed, our person is faulty. Compared to Christ our quality is defective. But the good news is God’s grace through Jesus Christ. His grace is sufficient.
With grace we are given power through the Holy Spirit and strengthened by that power. Our inner person needs to be connected to the power. How? By prayer. We need to practice a consistent prayer life to receive the perfect power in our weakness. Jesus is that perfect power to do the will of the Father in and through us. We might be weak but with the Holy Spirit we are strengthened for the purpose of walking in power for the glory of God.
If you are not connecting with Jesus everyday through intimate, consistent prayer then you are walking in weakness instead of the power of the Holy Spirit of God in Jesus Christ. Would you make a commitment to Christ right now to practice a consistent prayer life? You won’t be disappointed. Jesus is waiting to spend some quality time with you.
Continually seeking Him,
that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, — Ephesians 3:16
