Edging God Out
“My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak.” So I will brag even more about my weaknesses in order that Christ's power will live in me. 10 Therefore, I accept weakness, mistreatment, hardship, persecution, and difficulties suffered for Christ. It's clear that when I'm weak, I'm strong (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 GW).
Apostle Paul said, “ There is no good thing in my flesh.” He wasn’t talking about his body or his skin. The flesh is our ego. In Christ, we must let go of our ego. Why? We must let it go because it's hostile to the Lord’s way of seeing and doing things. Ego opposes the Holy Spirit. As long as we follow our egos instead of our shepherd we shoot ourselves in the proverbial foot and limp through life with little victory and joy.
