Weakness is deemed by many as the arch-nemesis of happiness. Most of us would go to great lengths to avoid it at all costs. But in God’s system, earthly weakness (of any kind) is a catalyst to the formation of heavenly strength. And when the believer finally grips this fact, they can begin to take pleasure in this weakness, instead of fight it, beg it to go away, and waste its virtue through complaining. To rightly appropriate the power of weakness is one of the cardinal secrets of a successful Christian life.
