II Corinthians 12:9-10

“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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (ESV)

This morning, I woke up, and I was about 99% sure I was going to die. Of course, I tend towards the dramatic side, but it was bad. I had the migraine of the century, a fever, nausea – the whole nine yards. And I thought, There’s no way I can survive today on my own. All day, all I could do was push for a little more at a time. Just make it through this class, I repeated to myself over and over and over again. And somehow, miraculously, I reached the end of the day.

But it wasn’t me that got me through today. It wasn’t my strength, because I’m weak. I’m not strong enough to support myself. But I have a Refuge Who is. I don’t have to be strong enough, because He is. I don’t have to support me, because He can. His strength is made perfect in weakness, and He loves to come alongside and support the struggling.

So, friends, remember: no matter where you are, no matter what you’re doing, you don’t have to be strong enough – you just have to lean on the One Who is. When you are weak, He is strong.
