Weather Report From Heaven: Sunny and bright, with an abundance of light and lots of singing and rejoicing.
Scripture- “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are” -1 Corinthians 1:27-28
Thought of the Day- The Lord is attracted to our weakness. Really? What exactly does this mean? It means that when we are puffed up with pride and think we can do all things in our own strength, we are not much use to the Lord. However, when we reach the end of our rope and admit how weak we are ,then God can move into our life and do a mighty work through us. This way, there is no doubt about who deserves the credit when miracles happen in our life.
Many times in the Bible God uses the people who we would view as the least likely to be His choices. Moses, the stutterer, was used to communicate with Pharaoh to set God’s people free. David, a Shepherd Boy, was used to slay the giant Goliath. Joseph, while imprisoned, was chosen to interpret the dreams of Pharaoh. Gideon, the least of the weakest clan, was used mightily by God to deliver an inconceivable military victory for the Midianites.
What is it you are trying to overcome in your own strength? Have you tried to quit smoking, drinking or gambling in your own power? An addiction to sex or pornography? Haven’t been able to forgive someone who badly hurt you in your past? Admit your weakness and ask God to help you gain the victory. For only when we admit how weak we are, can God show us how great and mighty He is. The apostle Paul sums this up perfectly for us in 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 when he says “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. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
