In Psalm 6:2 David said, “Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.” Notice with me David’s realization. He said, “I am weak.” God brings us to a place in our lives where we become very aware of our weakness. I turned 31 a few weeks ago and for the first time in my life, I am starting to feel older. My mom used to call me “the strong man,” but I am learning that really my strength is very small. This realization is not necessarily a bad thing. Why? Because this knowledge causes us to be strong in the Lord. It prompts us to turn to the One that has all power. Consider also David’s request. He said in the above verse, “Have mercy upon me, O LORD.” He said, “…heal me; for my bones are vexed.” David’s recognition of his frailty thrust him to the Lord. It compelled him to ask for the help of the Almighty. The Apostle Paul said in the book of 2 Corinthians, “…when I am weak, then I am strong.” There is a value to weakness. The value is we learn to lean on the Lord.
