Everybody you meet is weak.
We all struggle with defeat.
In that you’re not unique.
Weakness is a guide
That can free us
From enslavement to ego
And the prison of pride.
The realization of our weakness frees us from pride and enables us to surrender to God’s strength. If people say you’re weak, have the strength to agree with them.
Life’s better when we’re no longer dominated by desires and entrapped by ego. To ignore your inner weakness isn’t a sign of strength. It’s a sign of denial. A sneer is a sign of fear.
When we refuse to admit our weakness, we’re not free. We’re in bondage to pride and deception. The more we admit our weakness, the softer our heart becomes and the more mercy and kindness we have for other people.
The greatest weakness is pride because by preventing us from admitting our other weaknesses, it keeps us forever stuck with them. Combat demonstrates that humans are weak, not strong–any of us are able to be snuffed out in a moment.
Humbly letting people see your inner weakness encourages them and opens their heart to compassion. Masking your weaknesses with excuses and explanations is prompted by fear.
Human nature is weak. If you’re a person, everybody knows that you have weaknesses, no matter how much you try to disguise them.
When weaknesses train us to feel remorse and to make amends, they lead us to healing, recovery, and inner freedom. Tears are liquid light that reveals a compassionate heart. They’re a sign of humility. Almost no one takes pride in their tears.
It requires strength and courage to humbly admit weakness. Acute awareness of our weakness makes us willing to be helped by God.
Reliance on God isn’t passive. It requires a rigorous, ongoing pursuit to subdue self and surrender in obedience to Him.
Will make you go
“Are You real?”
And let Him reveal
To be Spirit-led
Is to do
What Christ in you
Tells you to.
And turned into church.
