2 Corinthians 12:9
My grace is sufficient for thee for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

Have you ever been to the point of ‘I just can’t take this anymore?’ Well, you’re not alone I can’t image there is a person out there that hasn’t experience this at one time or another in their life. We all have come to a point where the pressures of life seem a little overwhelming and almost too much for us to bear. Jesus experienced the same thing too, once in the garden of Gethsemane and than again on the cross. In the garden he prayed in agony saying, “Oh my Father if it be possible, let this cup pass from me nevertheless not as I will but as thou wilt” (Matt. 26:39). And on the cross he cried out “…my God, my God why hast thou forsaken me” (Matt. 27:46).

Jesus went through it so that we could have his life. Isaiah 53:4 says, “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted.” Why? So we can have his life. He bore it; he didn’t give up so that we would never have to give up. Jesus knew that you and I would not be able to bear it alone. Therefore, he came to dwell within us so that when you feel like you just can’t take it anymore, all you have to do is lean back and rest in the strength of the Lord for his strength is perfect in weakness. He took our weakness to give us his strength.

Heb 2:18 says, “For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.”
