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.
Sometimes when we pray the answer that we receive from God is a “no”. We want Him to bring relief to painful situations in our lives. But we must not miss God’s voice because He is saying something that we don’t want to hear. We think that the answer to our prayer is what we need, but what we really need is more of God. If He is telling us “no” then He has a better plan. We must learn to walk through brokenness. We do this by realizing that God’s strength works best when we are weak. When we are at the least of us, that’s when we get the best of God.
God tells us in Corinthians that His grace is all we need because His power works best in weakness. Describe a time of weakness in which God’s grace rescued you. How was this better than competing with your own strength?
Oftentimes we think we need “something,” when what we really need is more of Him. What are some ways that you can receive more of God during your quiet and prayer times?
