Finding God's Strength In Our Weakness

by Margaret Cagle

The Apostle Paul had a thorn in the flesh.
He had a physical weakness, we see.
He prayed to God three times asking,
"Please let this problem depart from me."

God chose not to take Paul's thorn away.
He said, "My grace is sufficient for you.
My strength is made perfect in weakness."
Paul found God's promise was true.

Paul chose to glory in his infirmities.
He wanted Christ's power on his life.
He found God's strength in his weakness
And His power in the midst of strife.

You and I may have some weakness
That God chooses to help us to bear.
He may choose not to remove it from us,
But for His reasons, He leaves it there.

Let's find God's strength in our weakness,
For He can give us sufficient grace.
We can find joy in serving our Savior
Until we behold Him face to face.
