2 Corinthians 12:10 (NIV)
For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Weak is not a word that we like much. Culture and society that celebrate raw and toxic masculinity do not like the sound of that word. Weakness is admitting one's inability; today's society will not forgive such weakness. Today's culture would instead shoot the weak and wounded than care for them and love them. But the mystery of God's grace is that the Lord's power can not dwell in natural strength. God's power can only dwell in our weakness. That is why the Lord said, "Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated" (Romans 9:13). God despises natural and carnal strength but rejoices in exalting Himself in our weakness. For when we are weak in the flesh, then we are strong in the power of the Lord.
