How often do we find ourselves in fervent prayer when we find ourselves in the midst of uncertainty and crisis? The answer is all to often. We seem to call out to God most often with heart-felt tears during these times. And, our God is so loving, He returns our prayers with grace. His grace is stronger when we are at our weakest. It is through faith that we receive God’s free unmerited grace.
“My grace is sufficient for you, For my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV
It seems that when we are in constant prayer, we open our hearts to Him in search of help. How wonderful would that be if we always prayed as if we are in crisis, and in some respect we are, maybe not as obvious, yet in crisis. The battle over our soul rages daily. The evil one does not want us free, he wants to strip away our salvation, shackle us to demons and lead us to hell. I would say that is crisis enough to stay in fervent prayer.
But through our Lords grace, we survive to tell our stories, our testimonies, to others to show them the way. It is through these testimonies that we share our relationship with God with others. It is through these experiences that we become disciples.
As the battle rages and we become more intimate with God through reading the scriptures and applying them in our daily lives, the stronger we become, the more we take the mantle of Christian Warriors, and the greater the number of people who want to establish the same relationship with God as you. Though our testimonies others come to Christ and more readily receive God’s Salvation. “My power becomes perfect in weakness” says the Lord.
When we are weakest, His grace is sufficient to carry us through times of uncertainty. When we are weakest, we stay in prayer. When we are weakest, we seek His lifeline.
When are we weakest? The answer is every day because we are under attack everyday. The evil one wants our soul. We must be ever vigilant and stay in prayer.
Our strength lies on our weakness. Our weakness connects us to his grace and mercy.
