2 Corinthians 12:9-10 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. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”

“Have you ever felt too weak to win the battle? Friend, you may not be weak enough. God identifies  Himself with our obedient weakness. It is  when we stop trying and start trusting that God’s power can be manifest.

You see, your weakness is not a liability; your weakness is an asset. The battle is not yours; it is the Lord’s! If only we could learn that God does not need our strength. God calls for our obedience!

God has the strength. And He wants to give you that supernatural strength in place of your own. It is not your ability; it is your  availability. It is not your fame but your faith. It is not who you are, but Whose you are!

You may think that doing something in your strength is something of which to be proud. But read 1 Corinthians 1:26-31. In what should you boast?”
