Re:Verse reading–2 Corinthians 12:1-10 (day one) “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness”. (vs 8) It is a rare story. Judging from the encounter 14 years ago, visible/audible post-resurrection encounters with Christ weren’t everyday experiences, even for the Apostle Paul. We must pay attention when the Lord does speak. His power is made perfect (grows to full size, accomplishes its intended purpose) in a time of weakness! We expect the opposite. Progress for me looks like competence and strength and health and command of the situation. Not for the Lord. His purpose is deeper than my success and his power is never more effective than when I am weak, when I have no other choice than to surrender all expectations and demands, TO TRUST! There is much to learn here for all of us. This week as I am away, I will be praying for you (and for the guest bloggers). Read deeply, dear friends. This is powerful truth.
