Mere opportunities...

1 Corinthians 1:25-31: Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.  For you see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;  and base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yes, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:  That no flesh should glory in his presence.   But of Him are you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:  that, according as it is written, He that glories, let him glory in the Lord.

The very weakness the enemy torments us about can be the chosen conduit of God’s omnipotence, all we need do is relinquish ourselves to Him as Lord and Master.
Fear not therefore fellow soldier, our weaknesses, frailties, infirmities, reproaches and failures are merely opportunities to magnify His grace.
