When we find ourself in a place of weakness,
It is the stage God uses to display His power.
Jesus in His first few phrases of Mt 5 says
we’re blessed when we’re at the end of our rope
When there’s less of us there’s more of God
as we turn to Him to control our circumstances
we’re blessed when we feel we’ve lost what is most dear to us.
Only then can we be embraced by the One most dear to us
we’re blessed when we’re content
with just You
Just You! no more, no less.
This is when we find ourselves in possession of everything that only God can give us in His enabling grace
Matthew 5:3-5 paraphrased
