2 Corinthians 12:7-10 MY STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT IN WEAKNESS.God choses to accomplish His most important tasks despite our imperfections, not because of our speaking ability, looks, or fitness for the task. God was looking for someone weak enough to use, and he found (you and me)! We don't have to have a whole lot of beauty and skill and position and grandeur in order to be within God's accomplished people. =)
I am with the LORD........
PEACOCKS AND KIN.
Male peacocks are resplendent creatures with iridescent blue-green plumage and elongated trains tipped with 'eyes' coloured in hues of gold, red, and blue. They are strikingly beautiful birds, but they have ugly feet !!!!!! To be honest most of us have some type of physical limitation. It may be something we've borne all our lives or one we've recently acquired. Paul described his deficiency as a "thorn in the flesh" that kept him humble (2 Cor. 12:7-9). Three times he asked the Lord to remove it, probably thinking that he could then serve God better. Yet the Lord assured him, "MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR YOU, FOR MY STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT IN WEAKNESS." Paul replied, "Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
One of the ironies of faith is that God often chooses us to accomplish His most important tasks despite our imperfections, not because of our speaking ability, looks, or fitness for the task. Missionary Hudson Taylor said, "God was looking for someone weak enough to use , and he found (you and me) !!!!!" When we find strength in Him, He can use us in ways we could never imagine (v.9). - David Roper. God's strength is best seen in our weakness.
LORD, I HAVE MANY WEAKNESSES. PLEASE SHOW YOUR STRENGTH THROUGH ME BY USING ME IN WHATEVER WAY YOU PLEASE. MAY OTHERS SEE YOU AT WORK IN ME AND PRAISE YOUR NAME. AMEN.
P/s : I may have ugly or small droopy boobs but my hands are skillful and I can cook well and laid the table extremely well. It is the hands they are looking for, not looks but skills !!!!!!!!
