2 Corinthians 12:9 (KJV) And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
When Darlington was eight months old, he could speak clearly. At that tender age, he did things considered impossible for his age. He was therefore referred to as a genius. Darlington grew to be very popular because he was exceptional. However, he became very proud and arrogant. At twenty-one, he had a Ph.D. It was shortly after this that he met Christ. Christ stripped him of pride and arrogance, but his fame and intellect remained with him. These he used to serve God; he wrote many books (scientific and gospel), tracts and articles which were best-selling because of the fame he already had.
We all have our strengths and weaknesses. When our weaknesses are subject to God’s authority, they give expression to God’s strength, but when we fail to subject our ‘strengths’ to the Lord’s government, they become our biggest weakness. Our gifts, talents, and endowment may either constitute strengths or weaknesses depending on who rules them.
Who are you subject to? Who is lord over you? The answer to these questions will determine whether your gifts, talents, and endowment will constitute strength or weakness to you when viewed in the light of God’s kingdom.
Go into today knowing that God is interested in every detail of your life. The weaknesses you struggle with today will cease to be when you subject them to God’s strength.
Prayer: pray that God’s strength will be made perfect in your weakness.
—Dr. Emmanuel James
