You may be wondering, boast in what? Continue reading and you will find out. 🙂
We may not fit the description and we may not qualify, but God will use us anyway.
When we are not adept or skillful in a thing and God uses us for that thing, the praise and glory belongs to God.
“Most gladly therefore will I rather glory (or boast) in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 (b)
When we allow the power of Christ to rest upon us we negate ourselves knowing that we are incapable of doing something on our own but also knowing that with God all things are possible (Luke 1:37) and we can do all things THROUGH Christ who STRENGTHENS us (Philippians 4:13).
This scripture reminds me that I have a flaw and we each have a flaw, probably even more than one, but we should not be hopeless because of our imperfections we should boast in our infirmities so that the power of Christ may rest upon us and so that Christ may be exalted above us.
Times where we are in infirmities, reproaches, needs, persecutions and distresses are times, rather opportunities, in which we can exalt Christ and praise Him because in these uncomfortable times we have the chance to be strengthened in Christ and used by God.

All praise, honor, and glory be to the living God. In Jesus name, Father I pray that all who read this will receive it with understanding. I pray that Your Word will take root in their hearts so that the enemy will not be able to steal it from them. Lord, I know Your word does not return unto You void but it accomplishes that which You please and it will prosper in the thing whereto You sent it according to Isaiah 55:11, so Have Your way O God, in Jesus name, Amen.
