I often get frustrated in my walk with God. How could I have been a Christian pretty much all my life and still struggle. Sometimes I’m shocked at my lack of faith. Other times I really have to fight temptation. And there’s usually an overwhelming fear of failure. How can this be? I’ve preached this stuff and done studies on it and heard it my whole life. I think the answer is that it is my carnal, fleshy, human side that I will never completely escape. What’s cool about it is that God knows about it and loves us for it.
2 Corinthians 12:9
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 about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
After all, if we had it all figured out, we wouldn’t need God.
