2 Corinthians 12:9
"But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness....'" NIV
"And he said unto me, 'My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness....'" KJV
Haven't we all prayed for the Lord to remedy a situation, heal a sickness, remove some trial from our lives? Haven't we thought we could be of much more use for His kingdom if He answered positively to these prayers? If so, we are missing the mark. Whatever we are facing, no matter how difficult our challenges, God's grace will never let us down and will support us in our difficulty. In fact, if we get to a place where we feel too weak and we've reached our limit, God will use us so that all will know He has used His own power through us to accomplish His work.
Heavenly Father, we confess that we want to be the ones who do great things for You. But You have a different plan. Help us Lord to do all we can in our weak and human ways and then trust that You will work through us with Your mighty power. We pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.
