“I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace given me through the working of his power”
There is one thing you must understand about grace. Grace equals power.
This power is so unique that it can raise a dead soul to life.
It is a supernatural power. It’s a unique power.
No matter what your hurt may be, whatever your suffering is, whatever grief is crushing you,
God’s promise for the apostle Paul is yours today:
2 Corinthians 12
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” .
No matter what you are facing, God’s grace is sufficient.
God’s grace shines the brightest against the darkness of our circumstances.
God’s grace is manifested most clearly when we are weak.
That is why Paul was glad to boast about his weakness. Why? So that Christ’s power would rest upon him even more.
“My grace is sufficient for you.”
Is God’s grace sufficient for you?
If you don’t think that God’s grace is sufficient for you, maybe you are focusing so much on the thorn that you cannot see the rose of His grace blossoming in your life. Look up and remember His grace, Truth, and promises–and rejoice.
Pray: Lord, help me to take my eyes off my thorn. May my gaze instead be fixed upon Your throne.
This is my Word of Hope for you. My Friend.
