“So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.”Galations 5:16
How can you be strong in grace?
By understanding and admitting that your flesh is weak.
That it was, is and will always be weak. It is flesh. It will always fail.
“You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 2:1 NIV)
The more you are able to readily you embrace the truth that you will never be strong enough in your flesh, the more you can embrace the reality that you need God.
And when you readily embrace God and His help in every area of your life- you are learning to be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
We perceive weakness as failure, God perceives it as the reality of the flesh.
He does not ask you to make your flesh stronger. He asks you to make your dependence on Him stronger.
What are you depending on God for today?
