2 Corinthians 12:9
“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee; for my strength is made perfect in weakness…”
When we come to God for salvation we come totally depending upon him to save us. We realize that we need a savior and that we can’t save ourselves so we look to Jesus Christ and the finish work of Calvary and we receive what He has done.
Well, the same way we come to God to receive eternal life is the same way we must receive all the blessings and promises that accompany our salvation. Simply receive. There need not be any effort on our part. The grace of God is sufficient to meet our needs and to perform miracles in our lives. Grace shows up in our weakness. In other words, when you come to the end of your ability grace is there. When you throw your hands up grace is there. When you gone your last mile grace is there. When you cried what seems like your last tear grace is there. When you’ve spent your last dime grace is there. His strength is made perfect weakness.
Remember Elijah and the widow woman she was at her last when Elijah asked her to make him a cake first. “And she said, As the Lord thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse and, behold, I am gathering two sticks that I may go and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it and die” (I Kings 17:11-12). When she completely let go and gave what she thought would be her last meal God’s grace sufficiently supplied for her, her son, and Elijah.
Child of God, His grace is sufficient for you today. Whatever the need, ask and then simply receive.
