weaknessI've been studying weakness. I've written a book previously entitled "Cover my weaknesses", but now He and I together are dealing with the core gut issues we all struggle with, but try to deny
 
We should not try to avoid our inadequacy. God made us inadequate. God wants us to be exactly where we are. He made us and positioned me just as He wanted. He comes in His power when we cry out in our weakness. He comes in real close with compassion to our weakness. My weakness draws Him as a magnet. He reaches out to help. I understand the underdog. I go to protect the weaker, yet I fight being weak. Being the weaker. Showing weakness
 
Fragility is a gift, being delicate is a gift. Society and satan don't want us to know this. To realise would be Heaven on earth. It's not about us, it's about God in us. Fragility is a precious, priceless treasure which He richly blesses us through. When someone crisp in their weakness the stronger person at that time goes in love to the weaker
 
God is the same. He is our strength in our weakness (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 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
 
If we fight Him and try to control our own strength we shut our doors on Him and His glory. We think we are protecting ourselves, but we are annihilating ourselves. We are shutting our doors on Him and are on a loser. On a path with nothing but misery, turmoil and discontent along it
 
Every day I am working with Jesus on something. Not without Him. He's right in there with me, digging holes in my personality, sewing, stitching, healing and revealing. Showing me where I need to follow Him more closely. Walking with me with diligence and tenacity. Putting my faithlessness to shame. Thank You LORD GOD
