His Grace is Enough

Are you having a difficult time seeing and believing that the grace of the Lord is sufficient for you — for whatever concerns you — for the circumstances in which you find yourself today?

Do you long to know — to see and believe — that His grace is enough?

[cp_quote style=”quote_left_dark”]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[/cp_quote]


[cp_dropcaps]I[/cp_dropcaps]n seeking to rest in knowing that His grace is enough, I pray, Lord…. please show me that Your grace is sufficient for me.  Please show me Your strength in my weakness.  So I determine to not run from this place of weakness — or to reject this season of struggle, change, and uncertainty — this season of weakness.   I don’t want to waste a day of His grace, I don’t want to waste a moment of weakness.  For it’s here that I find Him — it’s here that I clearly find His comfort and grace for each moment.   I don’t want to wish this all away—for I surely want the power of Christ to rest upon me.

I recall to mind the many times He’s shown me His great grace (or, actually, the many times I’ve noticed).  I wonder what He had for me that I missed — I wonder what grace I’ve dismissed or exchanged for despair, worry, regret.  I wonder what peace I’ve passed up.  I wonder how He would have/could have used me had I been yielded to Him.  What a thought, eh?  But you know what I’m discovering in this great season of redemption–this season of the Lord redeeming the time for me?  There’s grace for all those things, too.  This is the love of God.  That while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Yes, and throughout my life, wherever I’ve been… while I was yet a sinnin’, yet a falterin’, yet distracted… Christ ever lives to make intercession for me. I miss this great grace, this great love when I’m too cool, carrying on in my own strength, independent, “in need of nothing.”

Yes… His grace has been sufficient.  It’s enough.  It’s full.  How full is full?  Enough.  Enough is full.
