Living in the Promise of God:
God's power will rest on you when you are weak. 
He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Cor. 12:9
Today's promise comes from an encounter that Paul the Apostle had with the Lord Jesus Himself. In a nutshell, Paul has this incredible third heaven experience where he sees amazing things that he is not able to share with others. Afterwards he encounters a 'thorn in his flesh', a messenger ofSatan sent to harass him.

Three times he asked the Lord to take away this 'thorn in his flesh' and Jesus' response to Paul in the first part of verse 9 was... He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (WEB) After Paul heard these words from Jesus Himself, he received a new revelation of how the kingdom of God works.

May we have eyes to see the kingdom of God and embrace it with all our hearts. When we are empty of our own ability to manage life, may we see that it is then that Christ's power rests on us. Amen
