When weak then strong
“Most gladly then will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” (2. Corinthians 12:9)
“My grace is sufficient for thee” is a favourite text and a blessed one, but is it greatly understood? The circumstances are unchanged, but you are changed. It is not now so much what you have to do and bear, but what you are.
The power of Christ rests upon you; it is the strength of the glorified Man, and the disappointments and fears and sorrows of life are met in that heavenly power. You will view your circumstances in another light, not as under them, weighed down and oppressed, but as being sustained and morally elevated — "strengthened with all power according to the might of His glory" (Col 1:11).
