When it seems to me that the strongest position to be in is one of weakness.
And when we have the least, is when we actually have the most.
The Apostle Paul asked God to remove a weakness from his life three times.
Each time God said no.
Wanting to add some prolific words I read and then re-read the 12th chapter of 2 Corinthians.
Over and over again.
Each time I read it, I would ask God to give me something prolific, something profound to consider and to write.
And each time, I felt as though God was directing me to simply write what He had already written.
“Each time he said, “No. But I am with you; that is all you need. My power shows up best in weak people.”
Then a few words later, Paul wrote, “For when I am weak, then I am strong – the less I have, the more I depend on Him.”
That is about as profound as anyone can get.
The less I have and the weaker I am, the more I depend on Him.
