Our weakness, His launchpad.

January 15, 2014

Yesterday, I was reading to Ian from Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing by Sally Lloyd-Jones.  Initially I was reading to him, but the more I read, the more I was reading to us:

What does a rocket need to lift off and go zooming into outer space?  It needs a launchpad.

Do you know what God’s launchpad is in our lives–from which he can do ANYTHING?

Is it great faith?  Our perfect record?

Incredible courage?
No.

It’s our weakness.

God’s power comes to us in our littleness, in our brokenness, in our not knowing, in our not being able.

And when God’s power meets our weakness?

Liftoff!
