I am Weak and He is Strong

God often showcases his power on the stage of human weakness.

Over the past ten years, I’ve spent significant time helping individuals and organizations create strategic plans for their future.

When I facilitate these sessions, I help the client look around corners, play chess instead of checkers and anticipate and prepare for what isn’t.

Occasionally we hit bumps in the road, and sometimes, the bumps seem like twelve-foot-high concrete walls. In these instances, I have to help my client remove the wall, climb over it, or go in a different direction.

When we hit the “wall,” I always privately call upon my secret resource, e.g., the Lord, to help us decide what to do, and He has yet to let us down.


Have you ever come up against a wall in your life?

If so, have you prayed for God to instruct you on what to do with the wall? He’s fantastic at knowing what is around the corner and creating what isn’t…I write from experience.


Suppose you are someone who has never called on God for help–no problems. Unlike any other relationship on earth, which takes much time and effort to develop, we can instantly be in a relationship with God. He knows our situation and is always willing to guide us through…if we are willing to ask, seek, knock, and listen.

When I am weak…he is strong…2 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.”

Matthew 7:7-12, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!”
