Think about this YAWEH'S strength is made perfect in our weakness. The only problem is we never hear about how His glory is manifested through the failures of mankind let me explain.
The Bible does not spin the flaws and weaknesses of its heroes. Abraham lied. Hosea's wife was a prostitute. Peter rebuke Yewah ! Noah got drunk. Jonah was a racist ,reluctant to preach repentance to Israel's enemies Jacob lied. John Mark desereted Paul. Elijah burned out. Jeremiah was depressed and suicidal. Thomas doubted. Moses had a temper and murdered an Egyptian. Timothy had ulcers. Even David,one of Yahweh’s beloved friend, committed adultery with Bathsheba and murdered her husband. Yet all these people teach us the same message: that every human begin on earth, regardless of their gifts and strength, is weak,vulnerable, and dependent on Yaweh and others.
The pressure to present an image of ourselves as strong and spiritually "together" hover over most of us. We feel guilty for not measuring up, for not making the grade. We forget that all of us are human and frail and need to depend on Yewah. As He has used these men in biblical times He will use you today. If you are willing Yewah is able.
