Let the weak say, I am strong

I recall an incident from several years ago during an activity where the person leading said, “If you’re weak, this isn’t the place for you; you can leave.” I was struck by these words, feeling a sense of indignation at the arrogance displayed by those who believe they are strong while labeling others as weak.

However, weakness, especially in a spiritual context, holds a profound advantage. It teaches us not to rely solely on our own strength or abilities but to turn to someone far superior: Jesus Christ.

The Bible conveys this beautifully in Joel 3:10, urging us to transform our weakness into strength through faith: “Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.”

In the Lord, our strength is not measured by victories but by our connection to Him. Recognizing our inherent weakness is the first step towards acknowledging our need for God. We cannot boast in our wisdom, wealth, or strength, for it is in our vulnerabilities that God’s strength is made perfect.

Beloved reader, we are all frail before the Lord, and it is in this weakness that we find strength through Him. We mustn’t underestimate the power of God, who empowers even the weakest among us to stand firm in Christ Jesus, our Redeemer.
