I am a person who finds it special that God speaks to me and humbling to think that God might use me to speak to others.

Scripture:   2Corinthians 12:9   But He (God) said to me (Paul), “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.  

10  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.  (NIV) 

Observation:   Paul had learned that when he relied on his own strength, he could only accomplish what his own strength could endure.  But when he relied on God’s strength, he could accomplish what God’s strengths could endure!  

Application:  In areas I am weak I obviously need to rely on God.  But I am finding that even my areas of strength are extremely weak compared to God’s strength!   Whether I have to rely on His strength or choose to rely on His strength, I am always further ahead for having done so.   

Prayer:   Lord, how desperately I need you!  Every hour I need you.  In every situation I need you. I just need you!   Amen
