Grace Is Enough
February 04, 2024
"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." 2 Corinthians 12:9
When we go through things in life, we think we know what is best for us, so we pray and ask God to do certain things to deliver us or alleviate the pain that we are in. When we pray and ask God to do what we want Him to do that He may answer us with a resounding no. When we go through situations, we are looking at them with our physical eyes, and going through it physically, but God does not look at it the same way, He looks at what is best for us. The Scripture reminds us that Paul had a thorn in His flesh and asked God to remove it three times, and each time God said no, and instead He told Paul, My grace is sufficient for you, and in your weakness my strength is made perfect. I encourage you today to remember that no matter what you are facing in life, God's grace is enough to see you through. There may be some aggravating things that you will face, but God's grace is enough to see you through. What you are going through may be painful, but remember that God's grace is enough to see you through it all. It is in your weakness that you can really see God's strength at work in your life, and you can glory in His power that is working in your life. God will always give you His grace to sooth the thorns in your life, and when you can concentrate on His grace and not your pain, you will be able to make it through anything. Every day I need His grace in my life, for no matter what I face as long as I have His grace, He assures me that it is enough for me. Since I have God’s grace working in my life I know for sure, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord thank you for your grace that is more than enough to see me through. Help me to remember that in my times of trials, your grace is more than enough for me. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
