The Light Daily Devotional – Acknowledging Your Weakness
Focus: Acknowledging Your Weakness
WORD FOR TODAY
To receive help at any level of life, you must acknowledge your weaknesses. Grace will only be made available to the humble, not the proud!
“God sets Himself against the proud and haughty, but gives grace [continually] to the lowly (those who are humble enough to receive it)” (James 4:6b AMP)
When a man is weak but claims to be strong, he is arrogant. God is the most powerful opponent of every proud man. Every man created by God has a weakness by any standard. As a result, whenever it tries to bring you down, do not be afraid to admit your weaknesses. Help will be made available to you if you acknowledge it before God.
When they ran out of wine at the wedding in Cana of Galilee, they confessed their problem to Jesus and received divine assistance (John 1). The prophets’ sons recognized that their meeting place was too small for them, and grace was made available to them (2King 6:1). Help is readily available to you if you admit your shortcomings to God. There is no other way to die than to demonstrate your strength when you desperately need assistance.
+ Don’t you think you need help?
Prayer: Lord! I am weak but you are strong; make grace available for me in every area of my incapacitation in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: It is only the man who asks for help that will receive help. Until you involve God in the affairs of your life, there will be no intervention!
Have a Delightful Thursday!
