When I am weak, then I am strong…

2 Corinthians 12 : 9 – 10 (ESV)
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 weakness, 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.

When you read 2 Corinthians 12 : 7 -10, it talks about how Paul pleaded to God to let Satan go away for he was given a thorn in flesh in which to prevent him from being conceited. God reminded Paul that even when he was going through this kind of trial, God didn’t leave him and showed him that He has the capacity to give him sufferings in his life. Despite of this, He didn’t give Paul a distress in which he couldn’t handle.

That is why we should continue to believe in him and to ask for the endurance. For God gave us a trial or a problem or a situation that you may think you can’t handle it for a reason. He may be silent about it, especially when we communicate with Him. But in our very downfall of our life, you will be surprised how God blesses you in many different ways.
