‘Lord, here is my human weakness…’

“”It is a thrilling discovery to make,’ writes J.S. Stewart, “that always it is upon human weakness and humiliation, not human strength and confidence, that God chooses to build His kingdom; and that He can use us not merely in spite of our ordinariness and helplessness and disqualifying infirmities, but precisely because of them…. Nothing can defeat a church or soul that takes, not its strength but its weakness, and offers it to God to be His weapon. It was the way of Francis Xavier and William Carey and Paul the apostle. ‘Lord, here is my human weakness. I dedicate it to Thee for Thy glory.’ This is the strategy to which there is no retort. This is the victory which overcomes the world.”” -“Spiritual Maturity” by J. Oswald Sanders, p. 45
