Daily Devotional Rev. Johnnie Flakes,III - March 17, 2008
Our devotion for today comes from 2 Corinthians 12:7 (Msg) "So I wouldn't get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations."
Wherever you are today, meditate on this; God often attaches a major weakness to a major strength to keep our egos in check. A limitation can act as a governor to keep us from going too fast and running ahead of God.
Remember, when Gideon recruited an army of 32,000 to fight the Midianites, God whittled it down to just 300, making the odds 450 to 1 as they went out to fight 135,000 enemy troops. It appeared to be a recipe for disaster, but God did it so Israel would know it was God's power, not their own strength, that saved them.
Whose strength will you depend on today?
Have a blessed weak day!
