“But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me” (2Cor 12:9)
We are on a vacation trip that we planned since last year. Because of my injured ankle, for a moment, I was afraid that we cannot make it. But God has been so faithful and good to us… I limp a little… I have some pain…but I can walk by myself... Thank God! I decided to take one of my crutches so that i can support the weight of my body when we have to wait for a long time. My husband and I also decided that I shall not use a wheelchair. By faith, I have graduated from that level.
At the Lagos airport we were waiting on a long line to check in… Suddenly, the immigration officer, seeing my crutch, he said that we should go to the fast track. It has red carpet… This is what I call favor… We went along with the VIPs and the Business class people. I was surprised at the authority connected with that crutch. Let me say it is God! Thank You Holy Spirit… When my two legs were strong I always had to take the long road and wasted so much time. With this injury (plus my crutch), I made it faster than when I was strong by my power.
Please my children, let me encourage you… I am not planning to use this crutch longer than necessary. But this incident reminded me that when I am weak, when I depend on God alone for His strength, I make faster progress spiritually. I had to learn not to be ashamed of my weakness. I had also learned to boast of my weakness. So that my weakness will point men to Jesus! This is my testimony: if there is any strength you see in me, you should know that it belongs to My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! To Him alone be all the glory!
