Quote from: BryanN84 on April 16, 2014, 11:12:12 amFrom Andrew Murray, Abide in Jesus, Ch. 28:Matthew 28:18Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.Ephesians 6:10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.2 Corinthians 12:9But 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.The Christian often tries to forget his weakness; God wants us to remember it, to feel it deeply. The Christian wants to conquer his weakness and to be freed from it; God wants us to rest and even rejoice in it. The Christian mourns over his weakness; Christ teaches His servant to say, "I take pleasure in infirmities. 'Most gladly...will I...glory in my infirmities.' (2 Cor. 12:9)" The Christian thinks his weakness his greatest hindrance in the life and service of God; God tells us that it is the secret of strength and success. It is our weakness, heartily accepted and continually realized, that gives us our claim and access to the strength of Him who has said, "My strength is made perfect in weakness" (v.9)
