When am weak then am strong?
For when I am weak, then I am strong. I have made a fool of myself, but you drove me to it. I ought to have been commended by you, for I am not in the least inferior to the “super-apostles,” even though I am nothing.

A third concept of Heaven, also called shamayi h’shamayim (שׁמי השׁמים or “Heaven of Heavens”), is mentioned in such passages as Genesis 28:12, Deuteronomy 10:14 and 1 Kings 8:27 as a distinctly spiritual realm containing (or being traveled by) angels and God.

What God says about struggles?
Joshua 1:9 Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Deuteronomy 31:6,8 Be strong and bold; have no fear or dread of them, because it is the Lord your God who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you.
What do Philippians 4 13 mean?
Philippians 4:13 tells us we can do all things through Christ. Many people have misused Philippians 4:13 and taken it to mean that you can do all the things you desire through Christ. When you take this verse out of context, you will think it means doing anything you want.
Who said when Im weak then I am strong?
He pleaded with God three times to remove this affliction, but God would not. Instead, God responded by telling Paul that God’s strength is made perfect in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). Because God said this to Paul, Paul found pleasure not only in this particular affliction but in the other difficulties in his life.
Do Christians believe in cremation?
Most Christian churches agree that when cremation is chosen, the cremains should be treated with similar dignity and respect as would be afforded in a traditional funeral. Funerals and memorials aren’t just about the body of the departed, or grieving. They are also a reminder of Christian beliefs about eternal life.
Who goes to Heaven according to the Bible?
Christians go to Heaven when they die. (Philippians 1:21-23) Heaven is paradise. (Luke 23:43)
What is the difference between Heaven and heavens?
“The heavens” refers to everything you see when you look up into the sky (beyond the clouds at any rate), whereas “heaven”/”Heaven” is a place. Since God presumably created both, this does not really help in (1). Different Bible translations use “the heaven” and “the heavens” in Genesis 1:1.
