“And He has said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.’ Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore, I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
Regardless how many pounds we're able to lift or how often we work out to get strong, we are still weaker than God. 1 Corinthians 1:25 says in part, "...the weakness of God is stronger than men." Even at His weakest (and we know God isn't weak), He is still stronger than us. Thus, wisdom tells us to lean and rely upon God's strength at all times.
When we rely upon God in our weakness, His strength manifests in us in numerous ways, delivering us from the toughest of situations.
