                                                             “WEAKNESS IS THE WAY
                                                                                 By:
                                                                         J. I. Packer
 
J. I Packer reflects on his own weakness –he was hurt by a bread truck when he was very young.
Mr Packer is also a renowned theologian , he is also a teacher of the Bible.
The weaker we are the closer God can come to us because this is the point at which we need to be in order to really need and find ourselves praying to God and reading in the word.
 
The spiritual part of us will want God more and more when we are so weak and God wants us to need him with all our hearts, so if we have to become weak in order to get closer to God then that is really what we need to do. Don’t look at it that God is punishing you but that he is wanting you to lay in his arms for the comfort and words he can give us to survive and come stronger for him.
 
This is such a small little wonderful jewel of a book with a lot of powerful words for the wisdom we need when we are at our weakest point. The Devil love to see us weak hoping that he will be able to win us over but God’s plans are different he wants us weak so we come to him for the strength he lack at this time.
This brings us to Hope in the Lord and we are humans so we need to have hope that keeps us going.
 
Christ said ” My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made by weakness” Therefore I will boast all the perfect in weakness.
 
This is a must have if you truly want to know about weakness and the Lord. I recommend it highly it really is worth getting and reading. There is so much more that could have been written about this book.
This is a small 118 page book so it is a fast read but like me I’ll beat you’ll want to take it at lunch and reread it at a slower pace and meditate on the words in this little jewel of a book with powerful words that will rock your soul.

I received this book free for a honest review from Crossway. I was not obligated to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions are my own and no one else’s.
