that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
2 CORINTHIANS 12:9
All those who want power with God must see that His power is released through our weakness. Do realize that you are weak whether you admit it or not, but the power of humility is in recognizing and agreeing before God that we really can do nothing of our own selves.
God’s power is not for those with natural charisma, talent, leadership skills, education, training, or “connections.” God is not looking for volunteers to serve at their own convenience as their schedule permits, but calls for disciples who will lay down their lives. The flesh counts for nothing in spiritual matters.
