SUFFICIENT GRACE


2 Corinthians 12:9


"But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.'" NIV


"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." KJV


Why do we seek God's deliverance from seemingly unbearable circumstances in which we are living? Do we not yet understand that it is only through these trials and barren seasons that the Lord pours out His power on us to shine as lights in this dark world? If we are lavished by grace with God's holy power because we have no strength of our own, we can rejoice as we cling more fully at His feet. We are not only blessed by His power and grace in our tribulations, but we are shining lights that illuminate the way for the lost and weary.


Heavenly Father, forgive us for our complaining and bucking against the difficult things that come against us in this world. Give us eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts to understand that it is through these times that your power works greatest through us. In Jesus' name, Amen.
