Weaknesses Never Contradict God

Is it the weak, that contradict God? The unlearned? The not-so-bright? The young and immature? The ignorant? Is it they that oppose God?


Pride always opposes God. Weakness is always a prerequisite for God's grace.

Humility is not saying "I am nothing." It is saying that "I have nothing."
So, what is your boast? What do you posses? Do you HAVE that it takes to do anything of lasting value? ... or are you dependent/humble/needy?

If you have something that nobody else has, then welcome to the fringe of the Kingdom or worse. Welcome to the windy, dry, and cold pinnacle of the pyramid of your own boastful accomplishment, while the rest of us sit below as the lowly of the lowly. Right?


The grandiosity of piety knows no end, and relies fully on your strength. Ability is the boast of the proud.

Meanwhile, those that lack - will find. The weak will be strong. The needy will be filled. The gentle will be victorious. The burdened will have rest. ... for they have God.

I know what you say is true because the world hates weakness. God loves us in our weakness. He loves me much!

If we posses anything, may it be a deeper understanding of our depravity apart from the Grace of God, so that He may safeguard His power within those that have no claim to strength of their own.

Ripening for the harvest,

Humility is not saying "I am nothing." It is saying that "I have nothing."

Profundity with such simplicity. I hope it is okay for me to repeat your sayings since I believe that truth is His not ours.
