But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
Paul couldn’t understand what was happening to him. Three times, he had asked the Lord to alleviate a negative situation in his life. God answered Paul’s prayers, but in an unexpected way. The Lord chose to not dissolve Paul’s problem. Instead, He assured Paul that His grace was sufficient for him, even during difficult times.
God’s grace enables us to continue no matter what circumstance we may encounter. If everyone turns against us, it will still be there to strengthen us. His grace is never inadequate. It will never run dry. It never spoils. It has no expiration date. It is never depleted. It never fails. His grace, without any merit of our own that would cause Him to act so incredibly favorably toward us is certainly adequate for our own needs. It is more than we deserve. It is more than enough to accomplish more than we could ever imagine.
Lord, thank You for Your grace! It is more than sufficient for me.
