We cannot go forwards by backwards. We must stand. If we cannot stand where we are at we won’t stand elsewhere either. Jesus is a present help and the only one who can make us strong against this world and even against our own flesh. To dwell in the place of weakness is to dwell in defeat. It is standing up where we are that gains us the ground to go forward.
2 Corinthians 12:9 KJV
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
