Daily devotional: Strength through weakness

Scripture
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV

Observation
Jesus' power is made evident through us when we are incapable. When we think we can do it all on our own, there is no room for Jesus to be glorified.

Application
In hardships, difficulties, and weaknesses, rely on Jesus. Let His power rest on me and may His name be glorified as a result.

Prayer
Good morning, dear Lord! Thank you for this beautiful day and opportunity to be Your servant and enjoy You. May Your name be glorified and Your reputation increase wherever I am. Help me to decrease so that You will increase. I love You and praise You! I devote myself fully to You. I accept Your grace, which is much more than sufficient for me! I am available to You. Please help me to be comfortable with all that You nudge me to do, knowing that Your power will accompany me. Glory and honor be to Your name forever and ever! Amen!
