You're a Weakling
“Undertake it? No; not by yourself. You are too weak. You will fail before the day is out. But what you cannot do yourself Another can do for you. His iron will can work through your feeble will, and strengthen it with a strength which is not your own.”
- Forbes Robinson
Paul says, “We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that the surpassing power is from God and not from us” (II Cor. 4:7). You feel like a weak, cracked, chipped vessel? Paul makes it clear. It’s not about the vessel, but the contents. We are weak vessels with powerful contents. Your contents are exceedingly great - the very death and life of Jesus in you.
You say, “I have nothing to give. I'm too weak.” God’s word respectfully disagrees. God says, “Someone needs what you have. Start pouring and see what happens." Someone needs your contents. Give away and watch God give more. We act as if we're squeezing juice out of a raisin while God is pouring into us, our cup spilling over. We are weak vessels with powerful contents.
