The worst of all imprisonments…

Commonplacing Christian

One day we will all find out that being sincere, does not give us license to be wrong. Truth demands investigation and commitment. Our conclusions must be in keeping with truth that can be tested. To be handcuffed by a lie, is the worst of all imprisonments.

God helps us through failures and the Lord delivers us out of them. God also makes goodness come from our failures. Even Christ’s strength was made perfect in weakness.

Christ’s strength made perfect in weakness

2 Corinthians 12:9    And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
