Daily devotional: God's power made perfect in our 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
God does not call us to do anything that cannot be done through His power within us and outside of us. We can trust that His grace is sufficient to accomplish all that He has in mind. And in fact, our inadequacies give an opportunity to God to show His power as He accomplishes that which otherwise would not be possible.

Application
Don't get caught up in inadequacies. Instead, trust God and His grace for me. Know that His power is made perfect in my weakness.

Prayer
Lord, You are so good. Your love and your grace and your mercy amaze me. Thank you for blessing me with so many blessings and privileges. Thank you for sharing today with me that it is not about my inadequacies, but rather it is about Your power! I love you!
