2 Corinthians 12:8-9 Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
The light you carry is not for you in light, but for those in the dark. Every opportunity in life is not always a self-benefit or accomplishment like many perceive. It is actually for the benefit of others. However, it is sad to know that many people may push you down. As long as you are trying to rise beyond the normal or reasonable in their eyes of understanding.
Amazingly, you do not have to be bothered much about the way people perceive you. Because God in His own amazing way, will strengthen you in your weakness. And as you wake, you will rise up like the eagle and sour in the grace that brings you to the level of peace.
Remember, the right way for grace to work in your life, is to be lifter of others.
