Building on yesterday’s devo:
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made complete in weakness
–2 Corinthians 12:9
….Whatever fails we come up with, He can redeem. And that brings Him glory.
That doesn’t mean we should fail intentionally, especially if that failure is sin. Insufficiency comes naturally; we don’t need to create more for Him.
….Remember that a few loaves and fish were all that was offered to Jesus to feed a large crowd, and He was glorified. A leprous hand was offered to Him, and His power to heal was honoured. The tomb of a dead brother became a scene of awesome praise. And a disgraceful cross, as well as the horrendous sin behind it, became God’s greatest glory…..God is used to taking humility, brokenness, and even failure, and magnifying Himself in them.
How amazing is that really? And God has shown over and over again throughout the bible that He chooses the weak to shame the strong and wise. That no defeat is able to take Him down.
It’s the nature of God to make something out of nothing; therefore, when anyone is nothing, God may yet make something out of him.
