God’s POWER is made perfect in our weakness.
We have been brought up to BE STRONG….not weak. No wonder we find it hard to surrender.
God has something for us in every circumstance, so while we are praying for “it” to leave us we are MISSING the very “thing” God longs to do within us…the blessing that seems so “disguised”. We want to tell God what we need, when duh, He already knows:)
Contentment comes from the assurance that our God and Creator is ALL we need. He is sufficient.
It is only there, with Him (through His Grace), that we can ACTUALLY BOAST of our weakness…so that CHRIST’S power will be “upon us.”
-in surrender we FIND and can UTILIZE HIS POWER…instead of trying so hard and failing in our own.
May we LEARN what it means to be content in Christ…that is becomes a reflection in our prayers…that we would not ask for God to take us from our circumstance, but that He would reveal Himself within it.
