Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong. - 2 Corinthians 12:10
Paul could operate in his own strength or God’s. For the power of the Lord to work through Paul, his own had to be diminished. The man who headed for Damascus, “breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord” (Acts 9:1), was a hard-headed, strong-willed character, arrogant in his own might. Such a person is unusable as an instrument of Christ’s Kingdom because God “resists the proud” (James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5). Thus the equation of strength, Paul discovered, included the “W-Factor.” To the extent his flesh was weakened, God’s power could take over.
