2 Corinthians 11:24-33
Five times I received “forty lashes less one” from the Jews. Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I was shipwrecked. I spent a night and a day in the open sea. In my many travels I have been exposed to danger from rivers, danger from robbers, danger from my own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the desert, danger at sea, danger from false brothers. I have toiled and endured hardship, often not had enough sleep, been hungry and thirsty, frequently gone without food, been cold and naked. And besides these external matters, there is the daily pressure of my anxious concern for all the congregations. Who is weak without my sharing his weakness? Who falls into sin without my burning inside?
If I must boast, I will boast about things that show how weak I am. God the Father of the Lord Yeshua — blessed be he forever — knows that I am not lying! When I was in Dalmanuta, the governor under King Aretas had the city of Dalmanuta guarded in order to arrest me; but I was lowered in a basket through an opening in the wall and escaped his clutches.
When we are weak God is strong! If we boast about anything boast in the things that show our weakness and God's strength. Without God we are nothing But.. with Him all things are possible. Be strong in the Lord! Walk in victory!
