And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
[2 Corinthians 12:7-10 ]
However,Ephesians 6:10 says,
…be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
•Our strength is always in the Lord.
•Anyone that is strong in their own strength is dangerous to them self; and to others.
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
•When we realized that the Lord is our strength, and the strength of our lives, and the strength by which we live, we will live life without fears.
•In 1Sam Ch-17 David faced Goliath and took him on in the Name of the Lord of Hosts (Armies). David didn’t look at the giant size difference between he and Goliath to determine his victory. David didn’t looked at the strength difference between he and Goliath to determine his victory. David knew the Lord was the strength of his life and the Lord was his Victory.
•Likewise the Lord is your Strength of your life and your Victory.
•Let the word of God be the standard for your life. Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
