Jesus replied to Paul's prayer: "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness." This is not a new principle, but a prominent theme in the Old Testament. In Judges chapter three, God used an inadequate leader with an inadequate weapon to deliver an inadequate army against their superior enemy. God delights in changing the world using inadequate people like you and me. This ensures that He will receive the proper credit. Better still, adequacy is an illusion. We're all inadequate instruments desperately depending on God. Have you seen God use you for His glory despite your inadequacies? When He does, our response should be that of Paul: "When I am weak, then I am strong."
