Help in Weakness

. . . . Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness…  Romans 8:24-26 (NIV)

Many times we think that we have to be strong and not show any weakness.  We think we have to know everything about the situation we are facing.  We figure we need to get it all correct the first time through.

But God reminds us that we have help in our weakness.  In our weakness, God shows Himself strong on our behalf.  We can ask for God’s guidance and help.  He is there to see us through and never leaves us or deserts us (Hebrews 13:5).  God is strong in our weakness.

Prayer: God, thank you that you are strong in my weakness.  Help me to remember that I don’t have to be strong all the time and that I can depend on you.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
