There’s a secret the enemy will do anything to keep hidden from you. He doesn’t want you to know, because it will automatically put a spring in your step and cause you to hold your head up high, free from every trace of shame, worthlessness and insecurity. It will change your life! Wondering what it could be?
Here it is: GOD IS ATTRACTED TO WEAKNESS.
Yes, take a deep breath and let that sink in. So what if you have areas where you’re weak? So what if you have shortcomings? God is well aware, and undeterred!
It is not the skills, talents and gifts that God places in our hands that matter. It is the full, complete, unequivocal surrender of those meagre abilities to Him that He uses to do great things in our lives and in the world!
William Booth, the British Methodist preacher who founded The Salvation Army, was known to have said that his greatest secret was “he made up his mind, that God would have all of William Booth there was.”
Several years later, his daughter said, “No. That was not his secret. His secret was that he never took it back.” And that’s a secret we all need to discover.
Whether you’re working, enjoying a weekend of rest and fellowship or planning for the week ahead, remember that we all have our weak spots, and need help to accomplish our audacious dreams or move to the next level in any area of life. The wise thing to do is surrender your weakness to Him and exchange it for His strength to do great things!
