Perfect In Your Weaknesses

I went to bed timid and woke up BOLD!

Posted on

Many of those who have heard my personal testimony know that my greatest weakness growing up was that I was Extremely Introverted. That weakness crippled me when it came to talking in front of groups of people in any way, which was why I failed speech classes over and over again.

As a child, it wasn’t just speech that I had issues with; I was also crippled by fear. The enemy would attack me with horrible nightmares almost every night, until one night, this Incredible Man appeared in one of my dreams riding on a White Horse and He drove the demonic away.

I discovered that night that that Man was Jesus Christ because the next day, the fear (which had crippled my life for years) and the nightmareswere gone. And with it went my fear of public speaking. I went to bed timid and woke up BOLD!

It was sometime after that the Lord walked into my room and made His Introduction and my life changed forever. For it was during that day that He spoke to me for the first time in my bedroom, and I couldn’t get off my floor.

When I asked Him what He had done to me, He said, “I have taken your greatest weakness and I Am transforming it into your greatest strength because I have given you my ability in that area in the place of yours!”

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for MY STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT IN WEAKNESS. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

God’s Grace isn’t just unmerited favor; it is God’s Ability manifesting His strength where we do not have any of our own! So when people hear my testimony and ask me how I do what I do in ministry, I get to tell them I don’t do it. It is Jesus Christ and His ability who does it through me.

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, BUT CHRIST LIVES IN ME: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20

Jesus Christ will not only deliver you from the devil and his attacks upon your life. He will Empower your life with His Presence and His ability in the place of your own.

If you have weak places in your life, give those weak places to Jesus Christ and watch Him transform them into your greatest Strength as He fills those places with His Supernatural Ability in place of yours!
