Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – 2 Corinthians 10:10


For some say, “Paul’s letters are demanding and forceful, but in person he is weak, and his speeches are worthless!” – 2 Cor 10:10

It seems like it’s human nature to focus on our weaknesses. We often look at ourselves and only see where we fall short and mess up. I want you to imagine for a moment what would have happened if Paul had focused only on his weakness. This verse talks about Paul not being that great at giving speeches.

What if Paul had only focused on the areas he was weak in? I can imagine Paul hearing things like this, and thinking, well, I guess you’re right. I’m not that amazing to be with in person. I’m not that good at giving speeches. I guess I should quit. I should stop here.

I’m so glad that Paul didn’t do that. If he had not focused on his gifts like writing, we might not have a lot of the New Testament.

Don’t Let Weakness Hold You Back From What God Has Called You to Do.

The same is true for us too. Yes, it’s a challenge to not focus only on our weaknesses. Most of us are very aware of all the ways we fall short. Here’s the truth, however, if you focus only on weakness, it can stop you from doing what God has called you to do.

So today, don’t let your weaknesses hold you back from doing the things that God has called you to do. If you learn to rely on God and His help, you’ll always succeed in whatever you put your hand to.


Don't let weakness hold you back from what God is calling you to do.
