As a Christian, the battle for survival is not a personal challenge but one against God. It is an opportunity to honour God before men. Upon our
own strength we cannot rely. It is only upon God’s strength that we can go forth and go on. Our natural strength is as perfect weakness. Our natural courage is as perfect cowardice. All our sufficiency is of God. When you read the Bible, you will notice that God always seemed to chose the weak to put to shame the strong; He choose the foolish to put to shame the wise.
In the book of 2 Corinthians 12:8-9, we read that God’s strength became perfect in Paul’s weakness. All Biblical characters if they did not make God their strength would have ended up living their lives unnoticed, uncelebrated and in obscurity. This explains why the young, rustic and seemingly inexperienced and tactless David could defeat Goliath, the giant, in battle. This explains why Moses, the son of a Hebrew slave could stand before Pharaoh and make known the will of God concerning his people.
After reading the book of Ephesians 2:8-9, makes us understand that no one is too good or too bad to qualify for God’s grace. If the weak come to God, He is ready to help them just as He is ready to help the strong.
