Spiritual Warfare: 'God’s Power Works Through Our Weaknesses'

God's Power for Our Battles — Friday, March 29, 2024

Each time he said, ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
— 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, open my eyes to how my weaknesses give You the opportunity to show others Your power through my witness. Remind me that others are watching how I respond to the troubles and trials of life, and that they are looking for strength to overcome their own problems. Use my life to encourage others. Bless others through my hardships. Help me to smile and continue being faithful in spite of my persecutions. Shine Your light on others through my life. In Jesus Name, Amen.
