Walking On My Knees

God Help Me

by Leila Grandemange

 

I awoke this morning thinking about “weakness”. . .
Weary from the chronic joint pain that plagued me each morning, I couldn’t help but feel discouraged. I rolled out of bed onto my knees and prayed, “Lord, please help me through this day.”
The body and mind are a fabulous yet fragile thing. . . and weakness—feelings of anxiety, fear, and discouragememt can simply be part of life. I wish it weren’t so, but it is. The good news however is that our weakness serves a divine purpose. It brings us to our end so that God can take over!
Isn’t that what God desires for all His children, to recognize their weakness, and to live each moment fully reliant on His grace?
Sure, I’d love to be brave and strong every day, and while walking on my knees, dependent on God for all my needs, I can . . . and you can too! For God’s power is made perfect in our times of need.
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
