Devotional: God's Strength in Our Weakness
Christian Devotion on God's strength
But He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you [My lovingkindness and My mercy are more than enough—always available—regardless of the situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness." Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ [may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me. v.9 (AMP)
God's strength shows itself most effective in our weakness.
We all have moments of human frailty and weakness, distress and difficulties, struggles and tribulation, but it's in those moments when we're at our weakest and most vulnerable point, we can draw on God's strength.
It's God's power within us that enables us to stand strong in the Lord and to walk through it with Him. He doesn't take the weaknesses or struggles away, but He strengthens us with His power and might, so we can go through it in His strength and with complete peace—we will then come out the other side victorious.
Our prayers should not be for God to "take it away", but rather we should pray for His strength and power to endure it and to be able to stand strong in the midst of whatever life throws at us.

I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.] - Philippians 4:13 (AMP)
Lord, I know your strength's revealed
In the difficult times I face,
For in my moments of human weakness
I have your empowering grace
