ďAnd He said to me, ďMy grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.ĒÖfor when I am weak, then I am strongĒ 2 Cor. 12:9-10, NKJV.
Youíre a father and a husband. You have to love your wife as Christ loves us and make her happy. You work to provide for your family. You possibly are in leadership in the workplace or have a business where you make weighty decisions. Youíre a protector. When something breaks, youíre the repair man. Where you go in life, whether good or bad, right or left, so your family goes too. You are the one God put in charge of leading your family to fulfill their purpose, and you are responsible for getting your family there. Sometimes, it is downright tough being a man.
However, as the Lord said to Paul, He says to youĖHis grace is sufficient. To everything on your shoulders, His grace is sufficient. There is a dependency, a weakness in the Lord we must establish ourselves in and accept. When you are weak before Him, then you will find yourself strong. He will be strong through you. He is the only way you can be it all. You canít do it without His grace, and He designed it that way.
Be humble each day before God and glory in your weakness so He can be your Strength. He created us to find our Source and Strength in Him. He wonít let you down.
Prayer: Father, itís tough sometimes, but Your grace is sufficient. The tougher things get, the more I understand I need You. I stand weak before You. Be my strength. Give me wisdom. I ask for more grace to completely be the man Youíve called me to be. Whatever I need to be in the moment, from husband to father, I receive the strength to be it. In Jesusí name, Amen.
