The Value of Your Weaknesses!

I often hear individuals calling another person weak because that person did not respond the way he or she thought they should have responded. Being labeled weak isn't always a bad thing.

In II Corinthians 12:7-8 Paul wrote, "And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me." The Apostle Paul did not identify the thorn but it troubled and weakened him enough that he took it to the Lord three times in fervent prayer.

Several key things we learn from Paul;

* He did not broadcast his weakness.

* He simply petition the Lord about it.

* He never gave Satan any room to attack him as a result of the thorn.

We all have weaknesses but we should not place it on a billboard for all to see or sound it into the atmosphere for all to hear. If the enemy knows that you are afraid of something, then that is where the attack will come through.

Paul did not receive the answer he wanted. "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." (12:9)

Paul was told that the strength of the Lord is made perfect in his weakness so based on this he learned to take pleasure in feeling weak in regards to what he can do in the natural.

Hear is the closer. There is a battle going on for you weakness!

* God wants his strength to be made perfect through your weaknesses.

* Satan wants our failure through weaknesses to make him dominant over us.

Your weaknesses are more valuable than you thought so valuable that both the Lord and Satan are waiting for you to play into their hands.

Whose hand will you place your weaknesses in?
