2nd Corinthians 12:10 When I am weak, I am strong…
This article is not about Dwayne “the rock” Johnson’s weakness from the lst movie of the Jumanji remake.
This is about THE ALMIGHTY ROCK. The ONE who can stop a heart from 💓 beating if He chose, the ONE who could rip the Earth open if He wanted.
We are ALL, only humans. We have ALL done idiotic, sinful, selfish, cruel, greedy, sleazy stuff at one point in our lives, maybe now even. We are ALL broken, messed up sinners. Everyone, even those claiming to be Christian.
So why choose God as our strength?
1 Corinthians 1:20-30

- New King James Version /Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. 27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; 28 and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, 29 that no flesh should glory in His presence. 30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God–and righteousness and sanctification and redemption
All of our sin proves NO ONE, NO BEING, NO OTHER DEITY, NO KING, NO QUEEN, NO GODDESS, NO ENTITY, NO VOODOO, NO MOTHER NATURE, NO BLACK MAGIC, NO ANIMAL, NO SPIRIT, NO BUDDHA, NO ALLAH, NO PET ROCK, NO LUCKY UNDERWEAR….NOTHING!!!! CAN do what God Almighty has done through Christ, and is doing Now! We are all weak, we are incapable, and without capacity in mental power, physical stength, and every other way. We ALL fail everyday at something, whether its remembering something, making a wise decision, avoiding temptation, keeping our temper in check, on and on and on …we fail, we could never take over God’s job, not by any means!
So knowing we are weak, we must fall back on God is ALWAYS PERFECTLY STRONG.
When we acknowledge openly that we are weak, being able to own up to our flaws and our failures, not being embarrassed, not trying to hide, cause God sees everything anyway, forget the government watching you through the camera on your phone or air bnb cameras( recent news) GOD sees it all, and your thoughts, and your every intention… You acknowledge that we ALL NEED GOD, and stop trying to be God when trying to keep living without Him.
It is then that our weakness is our strength.Knowing we are weak and always will be, and choosing to fall back on God, makes us 💪 strong.
This gives God His rightful glory, showing that we cant ever do what HE does, so HE deserves all praise, honor, and glory. Amen!
