(2 Corinthians 12:9, NIV)
But HE said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for MY power is made perfect in weakness.”
The apostle Paul asked three times for GOD to remove something that was deeply troubling to him. But GOD’s response to Paul was, “My grace is sufficient for you.” GOD’s grace doesn’t mean HE’s going to remove the challenge or that the opposition will let up. It means HE’s going to increase your strength, so that what you’re up against becomes easier. Now you can handle what you couldn’t handle before. That coworker who used to get on your nerves hasn’t changed, but you’ve changed. You don’t let him steal your joy. The obstacle isn’t changing, but it’s changing you. That’s GOD’s plan working. You may have situations you’ve been dealing with for a long time, and you’re tired and discouraged. Right now, grace is coming on you in a new way. GOD is breathing strength into you, fresh vision, fresh passion, and a second wind, so you can stand strong and outlast what’s trying to stop you. Receive HIS grace. It’s sufficient for all you need.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
FATHER, thank YOU that YOU know what is best for me, and YOUR grace is sufficient for everything I’m facing. Thank YOU that it is serving YOUR plan for my life. Whether it ever changes or not, I declare that I’m not just going to go through it, but I’m going to grow through it. In JESUS’ Name, Amen.
