God created us; He knows our desires and understands our weaknesses. Paul the apostle wrote: “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 the power may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)  

It’s a comfort to know we are a child of God and then, we may always just simply acknowledge that we need help from our Daddy.

He longs for us to trust Him for everything! When God takes our weakness and does His mighty works, they become transparent snapshots of Him. Others can see what it looks like to be a part of His family and they observe how He solves problems, how He loves, and how He gives peace and rest.  

If we pretend we don’t have weaknesses, then we lose our transparency and people see us instead of seeing God work through us. We also lose the precious gift of empathy—because how can we empathize unless we’re willing to admit our own weaknesses? The fact is, whether we are in God’s family or not, we all have weaknesses. When we choose to put our weaknesses and trouble in the hands of the Almighty Father, we receive a double blessing because we are able to help others and we help ourselves!
