Strength in Weakness
"And He said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.' Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Is it possible for God to be glorified through everyday people like you and me? The answer is absolutely yes! In fact, the “ordinary” is God’s natural avenue for glory. In our scripture, Paul says that when we are weak, God is strong. This has been God’s way throughout history. Moses, a discarded baby in the bulrushes, eventually overthrew Pharaoh and his kingdom. God Himself became a baby in Bethlehem and turned  our world “right side up” with His coming. It’s as if the limitations of His people are a perfect backdrop to display His brilliance. I have a friend in the diamond business. Whenever he shows a diamond, he places it on a piece of dark velvet. The dark cloth sets off the diamond beautifully. Can God’s majesty and glory shine in our dark world through us? Yes it can…and it does…and it will.
