My grace is sufficient for you!

roots on rocks2 Cor 12:9 My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

I was walking in the rain today and the creek was running quite strong along a portion of the trail that I walk. Over the years it has gouged out quite a depth at a certain spot. It is has become several feet deeper at a particular narrow channel as the water runs faster there. It has exposed the roots of the trees that line that section. There is even a tree that has fallen over and has formed a bridge over the deep little gorge. It struck me that the deeper the waters run then the roots are exposed. If we as Christians have the deep waters of life running through us, if we allow the living waters that flow from the throne of grace to freely run through us then we become more transparent to the world. The world can see our foundations, it can see our roots, it can see who we are. It may weaken us in a sense, it may make us more vulnerable, but it will bring to light the foundations upon which we stand. No where is this more clearly apparent than in the storms of life as the waters run swift. When we are confident enough to allow the world to see not only our strengths and successes but also our weakness and failures then they world will see something authentic. They may not agree with the roots and foundations that hold us up but they will see it. God indeed is magnified much more so in our weaknesses rather than in our strengths.
