Topic: DEALING WITH WEAKNESS….Part 4
Text: 2nd Corinthians 12:9KJV
9 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.
In part three we discussed an important perspective of men about weakness which is a belief that weakness is a tool or God’s deposit into man to check mate man.
If we say weakness is not God’s plan for a man, how then does weakness enters a man’s life or what are the possible causes of weakness in a man.
* The Devil: Weakness can be a seed of destruction sowed by the devil into a man’s life. This is clearly explained in Matthew 13:25-28 saying
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared. So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’…
The devil is an arch enemy of man (God’s perfect creature), he has been envious of man from the beginning, he has been condemned already and so he is set out to thwart God’s purpose of glorious future for a man and so one of his potent tool to achieve this is to deposit a seed of destruction (weakness) into a man.
* The World: This is another source or cause of weakness in a man. According to 1st John 2:16, the world is filled with lust of the eye, lust of the flesh and pride of life. Every man on Earth is exposed to these three things and they almost naturally form the part of that man’s life except the man who has been redeemed and delivered by the blood of Jesus Christ. These three source of weakness in the world account for the common weaknesses you will find in almost every man, I mean so common that many believed it’s a way of life, some examples are sexual immorality, cheat, lies, deception, theft, corruption, illegitimate quest to make money e.t.c Beloved, these things are not ways of life and they are not of God, that’s why 1st John 2:15 says Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.
Dearly beloved, whatever the source or the cause of that weakness, God can help you, just cry to God and he will help you. God bless you.
* Father, please deliver from every weakness in Jesus Name.
