grace“Three times I called upon the Lord and besought [Him] about this and begged that it might depart from me; But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!” (2 Corinthians 12:8-9 AMP)

Do you have something facing you that you don’t feel capable of doing? His grace is al you need. This passage says that His strength and power are fulfilled and complete and show themselves most effective in our weakness. It’s in the midst of weakness that God shines the most in our lives because there is no way we can take the credit. Like a father in the natural who runs to the aid of his children when they need help, our Heavenly Father loves to run to our aid when we are weak. Rest today in His grace. Whatever you have going on in your life, know that His grace is all you need.
