Strength in Weakness

Rare is the person who has not thought himself or herself weak and inadequate.  Turns out, that’s the point.

Dane Ortlund to those entering the ministry:

God’s grace is sufficient for you. Get over yourself. You are weak. You are inadequate. You always will be. And the story of the Bible is God’s delight in taking weak, inadequate men and doing the unthinkable. Stop insulting the Holy Spirit. Your weakness is the single crucial prerequisite for him to make your life a miracle. To think “I don’t have what it takes” is precisely what it takes. Don’t try to overcome your weakness. Leverage your weakness into a lifetime of 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 ministry.

God’s power is made perfect in your weakness.
