The world, the flesh, and the devil want us to buy into the lie that we have to have it all together, figure it all, and stay strong to be empowered.
However, God designed the Christian life in just the opposite way! It is full of loose ends, unsolvable puzzles, and things that make us continuously feel dependent on Him, His power, and His wisdom.
She only needs to realize that her inner weaknesses are the keys to unlocking her grace-empowered potential.
What else could the Lord have meant when He said,“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV)
Since the beginning, the enemy has been trying to offer women a counterfeit version of what is already theirs.
But who wants a fake, when you already have the REAL thing?
And what Christian woman would want to rely on herself when she can rely on GOD and His GRACE.
That is what boasting in weakness is all about – relying on God and His GRACE.
It’s not about putting yourself down or feeling bad about what you can’t do.
It’s about looking to God to do what ONLY HE CAN DO and rejoicing in what HE HAS DONE FOR US IN CHRIST.
It’s about understanding that He has created each one of us with DIVINE INTENTION.
It’s not about buying into the cover-girl lies or putting a spiritual spin on the Cosmopolitan girl.
It’s about REAL EMPOWERMENT – not the worldly counterfeit.
It’s about EXPERIENCING GRACE – not giving it all YOU got.
It’s about KNOWING GOD AND THE CHRIST WHOM HE HAS SENT – not giving the Sunday school answer.
Welcome to Boasting in Weakness!
