The Power of Weakness (Exodus 2:23-3:6)
Jul 13, 2020 Season 3 Episode 31

We admire powerful people. We’re attracted to powerful people. We want to be with powerful people. We want to be powerful people.

Here’s the problem with that. God is attracted to powerless people. Exodus 2:23-3:6 gives us a double demo of that.

A POWERLESS PEOPLE ATTRACTS A POWERFUL GOD

  • A powerless people (2:23)
  • A powerful God (2:24-25)

A weak prayer is the most powerful prayer.

I get how God would see and be attracted to a powerless nation. But I’m just a powerless person. How could he see me and be attracted to me?

A POWERLESS PERSON ATTRACTS A POWERFUL GOD

  • A powerless person (3:1)
  • A powerful God (3:2-6)

People say knowledge is power, but God says knowing your weakness is power.

LIVING THE BIBLE

Admit all your weaknesses to attract the all-powerful God
