My Power is Made Perfect in Weakness

This is from the devotional Jesus is Calling by Sarah Young
When some basic need is lacking – time, energy, money – consider yourself blessed. Your very lack is an opportunity to latch onto Me in unashamed dependence. When you begin a day with inadequate resources, you must concentrate your efforts on the present moment. This is where you are meant to live – in the present; it is the place where I always await you. Awareness of your inadequacy is a rich blessing, training you to rely wholeheartedly on Me.

The truth is that self-sufficiency is a myth perpetuated by pride and temporary success. Health and wealth can disappear instantly, as can life itself. Rejoice in your insufficiency, knowing that My Power is made perfect in weakness. James 1:2; 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NASB)

    I have been amazed at just how much each day’s devotion seemed to be written specifically for me and my present situation! Thanks, again, Janice.
    You are very welcome; that’s what I love about it too. I feel at peace after reading them.
