“My grace is sufficient for you; My strength is made perfect in your weakness.” (II Corinthians 12:9)
Hey friend! Let today be a joyful one for you. If you have seen Jesus Calls calendar or our website, you would have seen God’s promise for the day. God says one of the most beautiful promises to you today. It is found in II Corinthians 12:9, which says “My grace is sufficient for you; My strength is made perfect in your weakness.” This is where God’s greatness meets man’s weakness. These words were spoken by God to Apostle Paul. When Paul was tormented by a certain weakness, he prayed thrice for it to be removed. However, God replied to Paul saying that his grace would be sufficient and made strong in Paul’s weakness.
On a certain day, I was thoroughly weak and unable to sing in a Sunday service. I had unbearable headache, but then God told me to go and sing and that his grace would sustain me. In the midst of all my weakness, I believed God’s word and went and sang. Do you know what happened? Much to my surprise, I received God’s divine strength and I experienced immense anointing to enjoy and sing that song. This at is how God’s grace gives you divine strength to be able to do the things, which would have been otherwise impossible for you.
My friend, what are you worried about today? Are you saying that you do not have the strength or the skills to do a certain job? Do you lack the talents to complete a task successfully? Is inability to speak eloquently causing you trouble? Whatever may be your deficit, God offers you a solution. Reach out to God’s grace. All the wisdom, power, talents and knowledge hidden in Jesus will be given to you. This is the very reason why the grace of God is absolutely important. When you ask God, you will definitely receive it. Come let us ask God and receive it from him.
My loving heavenly Father,
Thank you for the wonderful promise you have given me today. Lord, I very much need your grace to be sufficient in all my weakness. I reach out to your grace for your wisdom and strength, which you have made available for me. I humbly ask you to enable me to do mighty things and bring glory to your name.
In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
