When I am weak, then am I strong
2 Corinthians 12:10b - 'for when I am weak, then am I strong.'
I used to think why the Lord does not take away all my problems? Why do they keep coming in my life? Does not the Lord love me to take them all away?
It was only when I realized that because the Lord loved me that He let them come into my life to keep me in His ways. If I did not have problems in my life I deeply realized, that there are very high changes of me losing the Lord. And this, the Lord does not want to happen.
Unless and until we come to realization of our weaknesses, our sinful nature and overcome them, our problems keep us humble, they strengthen us by building our immunity to sin and keeps us in the Lord's ways.
Do not thank God for your problems for He too would like them to disappear from your life, but thank Him that He builds you through them. Helping you overcome them one by one till you overcome them by your own self. Unless you are an overcomer you do not get a great reward in Heaven, which the Lord wants you to have.
Realize your weakness and understand the strength of the Lord in you. Do not hold on to your weakness but to His strength.

I thank You Lord for your love and strength by which You re-enforce me with to overcome these problems. My problems are below my feet and I am over them, because You are with me. I make this prayer of faith in Jesus' Name, Amen.

2 Corinthians 12:8-10
8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
