Im just wiping out these blog posts mainly because I have a lot of draft post and I want to clear it out to add more, (I know...) but here is a devotional I get in my email everyday and this is kinda old but it speaks to me even now! On the bottom of this page is the link to the devotional and here is just, my notes on what God is speaking to me!
2 Corinthians 12:9-10:(amp)
"But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!
So for the sake of Christ, I am well pleased and take pleasure in infirmities, insults, hardships, persecutions, perplexities and distresses; for when I am weak in human strength, then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful in divine strength)."
God is not going to allow those weak areas of my life to utterly rob me of my right standing with Him, but He does require that I persevere. He says to me, “You can trust me not to let you go under. I will never let go of you, Daughter.” It inspires me to keep moving forward without quitting, because in the end it works out for my good.(Romans 8:28(AMP):
"We are assured and know that God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose."
God wants to bless me and build me up in character, even though it's not how I would do it but God knows me and His ways are not my ways. I trust God with all my heart! (Isaiah 55:8-9(AMP): "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.)"
