Weaknesses are insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities. They are circumstances, situations, experiences and wounds that make us appear and feel weak. They are things that we would get rid of quickly if we had the strength. If you are dealing with a weakness, I encourage you allow God to meet you in that weakness. God allows weaknesses so that we can draw near to Him and receive His Strength to overcome. His Strength helps us to endure each day. What is God’s Strength? It is His Power that guides us. His Grace that delivers us. His Might that upholds us. His eye that watches over us. His Ear that hears us. His Word that gives us speech. His Hand that guards us.. His Way that lies before us. His Shield to shelter us. And His Host that secures us. “God is my strength and power, and He ways my way perfect” (2 Samuel 22:23 NKJ).
