Power In Weakness

2 Corinthians 12:9

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

After an amazing vision of heaven where Paul "heard inexpressible things...that man is not permitted to tell", he received a "thorn in the flesh" to keep him from "becoming conceited." On three separate occasions, he pleaded with God to take the thorn away. God's answer and Paul's response are found in today's verse. God knows all about power made perfect in weakness.

Omnipotence wrapped in flesh...and nailed to a cross.
The Eternal One lived...and died in time.
The Creator constrained to a manger...and a tomb.
Jesus held down...and bursting forth!

God knows all about power made perfect in weakness. His "weakness" provided the power for our resurrected life and eternal life. Now, that's something to boast about!

Father, may the power of Christ rest on us today. In Jesus' name. Amen.
