“I want to be weak,” said no one ever. Why? Because weakness is a horrible experience. When we’re weak, we can’t do the things we want to do. Weakness means saying “I can’t,” and “Can you help me?” Words of only one syllable, yet the hardest words to say in the English language.
But, in the spiritual realm, weakness is strength. “I can’t” and “Can you help me?” are the most powerful words in our spiritual vocabulary. That’s why, in Psalm 59, David invites us to The Weakness Gym, whose tagline is, Our Strength is Weakness. Why would I want to get weaker? Let’s hear David’s answer.
