But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Grace for Today
When you come to the end of your strength, you will find God’s grace is enough to bring you through any problem or difficulty you may face.
The Apostle Paul was in a particularly difficult time in his life. He had prayed and prayed for God to remove what he called a “thorn in his flesh.” We don’t know what the “thorn in the flesh” was. It could have been a physical ailment, or it could have been the continued persecution he received as he preached the Gospel.
We do know that Paul felt the “thorn” limited his ministry and affected his life. Paul asked God on three different occasions to remove it.
God’s Grace is Enough
God finally answered his prayer by saying, “My grace is sufficient for you.” Then God went on to say that His power was made evident in Paul’s weakness.
What is God’s Grace? God’s grace is His unmerited favor. It’s God’s love, expressed for no other reason than He is a loving God.
God’s grace in your life strengthens and empowers you. His grace brought about your salvation. There was nothing you did that caused God to love you. It was His grace that drew you to Himself in the first place.
Grace to Face Any Problem
We pray for God to remove or resolve the problems we face. How many times have you thought, “If God would just get rid of this problem I face, life would be so much better?” Sometimes God’s answer is not to remove the problem but to give you His strength and power to go through the situation.
You may feel you aren’t strong enough to bring glory to God. God says His power, combined with your weakness, is the perfect formula for His glory.
Whatever you are facing today, God’s grace is enough. It has been said that you will never know Jesus is all you need until Jesus is all you have.
Let’s review that promise once again.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”– 2 Corinthians 12:9
