Living Mysteriously

9 But he said to me,“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10

2 Corinthians 12:9

By now, most of us know that things can go wrong in life and sometimes there’s nothing we can do about. We can try to fix things and solve some problems here and there in hopes to make things right but the reality of this life we live and the world we live in tells us that some problems are too big to solve and the issues go way back. Way, way back.

If we’re going to be honest, sin is really intense. It is not something to take lightly. We are all affected and don’t really know how to control it. We not only have to deal with our own sins, but the sins of those we love the sins of those we don’t like and the sins of those we don’t even know. This is the mess we live in.

But for those of us who know Jesus, we can actually live in a different reality – a very mysterious reality where we can somehow overcome our sins and not be bogged down by them. When we live depending on Jesus to do something about our problems, our worries, and our bad choices He helps us get through it in His way. All we have to do is recognize it and own up. We have to accept the reality of our state of being – that we are broken and in need of Jesus every day for everything.

When we are depending on Jesus to deal with our sin, we see something quite amazing happen that is often unexpected and beautiful. We see a different reality open up where sin, pain and death is no longer the ruler but Jesus is and He is love. He makes things right by way of healing, comfort and peace and often times we experience this through His Body of believers. A simple confession breaks chains of guilt and softens hearts of those who listen. A simple renouncing of negative thoughts and the resistance to behaviours of addiction leads to freedom and spiritual strength to overcome. What is key is our trust in Jesus that He is able and has overcome already. Saying, “amen,” to His victory and reality makes all the difference!

I pray you are able to fully live in the mysteries of Jesus’ ways this weak! I pray you can see His power in your weakness and enjoy a week full of peace and joy, no matter your circumstances.

With love
