Day 35 of the Purpose Driven Life

1. God loves to use weak people.

2. God has a different perspective on your weakness. He says, "My thoughts and my ways are higher than yours," so he often acts in ways that are the exact opposite of what we expect.

3. God has never been impressed with strength or self-sufficiency. In fact, he is drawn to people who are weak and admit it.

4. God is never limited by our limitations. In fact, he enjoys putting his great power into ordinary containers.

5. Be content with your weaknesses.

6. Our weaknesses also prevent arrogance. They keep us humble.

7. Our weaknesses also encourage fellowship between believers. While strength breeds an independent spirit ("I don't need anyone else"), our limitations show how much we need each other.

8. Christians, like snowflakes, are frail, but when they stick together they can stop traffic.

9. Your greatest life messages and your most effective ministry will come out of your deepest hurts.

10. Honestly share your weaknesses.

11. Vulnerability is emotionally liberating.

12. The more honest you are, the more of God's grace you get.

13. Vulnerability is the pathway to intimacy.

14. Glory in your weaknesses

15. Sometimes God turns a strength into a weakness in order to use us even more.

16. If you want God to bless you and use you greatly, you must be willing to walk with a limp the rest of your life, because God uses weak people.
