The Strength of Weakness

When challenging circumstances reveal our weaknesses, it can be tempting to despair. To help us battle discouragement­­—especially in the face of prolonged trials­­—Scripture teaches us to view our situations from God’s perspective. When we seek the Lord in prayer and call to mind His faithfulness and promises, we are reminded that He is able to work all things for His glory and our good. In this series, Alistair Begg explores the lives of several biblical figures who learned that it was actually their limitations that made them most useful in God’s service. As men like Paul, Gideon, and David discovered, honestly recognizing our weaknesses enables us to proclaim the sufficiency of God’s grace and boast in His strength alone. We must not be sidelined by our frailties, knowing that the Lord often calls the least likely individuals to defend His name and minister to His people.
