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?
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
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.
