IT is in our very weaknesses that the strength of God is perfected. If we are so foolish as to admit of no weaknesses of our own, may we not be, in that very attitude, denying God the opportunity to work in us and through us? This must be a possibility to consider. Paul’s thoughts on the matter indicate that, at the very least, it may be suggested as a possibility and with all reverence, that Divine strength needs human weakness as its vehicle or medium of operation. Indeed, this could be just why Paul affirmed, “When I am weak, then am I strong”.
