Psalm 116:5-13

I am working on my project again – specifically on the chapter about a “theology of weakness.”  Any verses of Scripture that you hold dear that speak to your weakness and enable you to live in the power of the gospel?  Share them!

For example, this morning I saw the gospel engage my weakness yet again in Psalm116:5-13…

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; our God is merciful.  The Lord preserves the simple; when I was brought low, he saved me.  Return, O my soul, to your rest; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you. 

For you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling;  I will walk before the Lord in the land of the living. 

I believed, even when I spoke, “I am greatly afflicted”; I said in my alarm, “All mankind are liars.’

What shall I render to the Lord for all his benefits to me?  I will lift up the cup of salvation, and call on the name of the Lord.

    Isaiah 6:5 – “Woe is me! I am undone.” Whenever I allow the presence of God to be paramount in my life through worship or prayer, I can’t help but see the holiness of God and I must recognize my own weakness. That’s when I need to give thanks to God for His undeserved mercy and grace to me. I’m not only weak – I’m undone!

    Mark 9:24 Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”

    My mantra.
