The Power of Weakness...and the Delusion of Strength

When everything is going well and there's no trial, this is the most dangerous trial of all; for then we are tempted to forget God." Martin Luther

I pray always that God will keep me conscious of my weakness. I do this because it's only when I'm honest about my limitations that I'm open to God pouring His strength into me and making of my willingness to show up wherever He sends me something that's good and useful. As the apostle Paul writes, "When I am weak, then I am strong" and "God's power is perfected in (our) weakness."
