His Grace Is Enough

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.  (2Co 12:9)

The Apostle Paul learned about God’s Grace.  In Corinthians the Lord tells Paul, My Grace is sufficient.  No matter what Paul was facing, and even though he desired so severely for this pain to leave him, he found out that Grace was enough.  Think about that today.  If you are seeking God for relief from a situation and you are believing He will bring that relief, will you receive a word from God that His grace is enough?  We want the circumstances to change.  For Paul he had been through so much.  In the chapter before this Paul writes of all his hardships.  He went through shipwrecks and beatings and insults.  He was tired of all this stuff and was crying out to God to relieve him of his pain.  Sometimes, we need to remember that God’s grace is sufficient.  If we are truly obeying God’s will for our lives, then we can’t rely on circumstances to lead us or show us the approval of God.  We already have his approval and we can make it through any circumstances if we will simply rely on the Grace of God and not on our own understanding.
