Embrace

 

It’s an unwritten rule that you’re supposed to highlight your strengths and hide your weaknesses. Everyone does that, right? But, what if God wants us to do the opposite? What if Paul was on to something when he said, “Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me” (2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV)? Bringing our weaknesses to light allows God to prove to us and others that His strength is well able to come through on our behalves. The best depiction of this is the story of Gideon and the 300. God intentionally dwindled down their army (i.e. their strength) in order for His strength to be obvious (he was flexing lol). So, it seems as though weaknesses and/or clay jars (2 Corinthians 4:7) are the best stage for God to reveal His glory to us and to the world around us. I don’t know about you, but I want to be a stage for His glory.
