As a result, most people are left with the belief that they do not have to work on their imperfections to become a better version of themselves. However, God has given me the mandate to espouse how you can make your weaknesses become an advantage, rather than the initially presumed disadvantage. Today, I will be talking about ‘How to Turn Your Weaknesses to Strength.’ Therefore,I urge you to stay put to harness all that God has for you as it will impact your life positively, in Jesus name!
Why Should You Turn Your Weaknesses to Strength?
Today, the world is filled with lots of manipulators who would leverage your weaknesses to exploit and negatively present you. Most importantly, it is the will of God that you become a better version of yourself. Jesus says in Matthew 5:48, Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. This implies that you are under an obligation to live above your imperfections. God has created you in His image and after His own likeness. See what the Bible says about you in 2 Peter 2:9, But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. This is a clear picture of who you are in Christ.

An understanding of your weaknesses is a way forward to making it your strength. Admit them and see them transform into your greatest strengths.

The Bible buttressed this fact in Philippians 4:8, Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
- Seek Help: No man is all-sufficient, and no man is an island. Therefore, you need help at all times. Seek counsel and advice from elders, Pastors or more experienced individuals who will help with valid advice and constant counselling about the area you constantly need help. More so, when you find someone who has strengths where you are weak, acknowledge them and ask them to help you. While helping you, you will be able to learn and improve on your weaknesses.
