Oh, this verse has been speaking to me for so long. HE IS ENOUGH. HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT. I have come to a point in my walk with Christ where I realize that I must make this true. I love Jesus more than my husband or children. This is not easy and only possible with Jesus. I mean we all have to get to this point where His Spirit just oozes out of our pores and we literally can’t stand it if we don’t shine Him. I mean a crazy in love relationship with OUR LIVING GOD.
I can’t worry about my children’s safety because I trust His promises.
I can’t keep doubting every little thing because I trust His promises.
I can’t worry while my husband is driving because I trust His promises.
I can’t fret over the future because I trust His promises.
I can’t try to control situations because I trust His promises.
I can’t show anymore unbelief because I TRUST HIS PROMISES.
He doesn’t promise me that nothing won’t ever happen but He does promise me it will be for the good. He does promise me that I am loved. I certainly was not happy when my daughter was stillborn and died before she was out of my womb. I wondered where His Grace was then????
My point of surrender has to be this statement. Even if something happened to Michael, Kalee, or Emilee then my God is still enough! Period.
He. Is. Enough. I don’t need these worldly things. More of Him, ya’ll! Less of ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am on the crazy God seeking journey to be so madly in love with Jesus Christ that nothing else will matter. That the truth that He is enough rings so true that all my fears and failures ARE smashed in the grace and sovereignty of my Lord and Savior! Woot! Will you join me? When Jesus comes back nothing else will matter. When Jesus comes back all knees will bow and all tongues confess!
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Cor 12:9
Christ’s power is best displayed against my fleshly weakness. It just is. Because then God alone is praised. I can’t do anything on my own. Instead of removing my problems (boy don’t I wish He would), my Father gives me grace in my problems. His grace alone is sufficient. This means contentment. The Greek word “trans” in verse 7 means to keep one from being conceited. Yep. We all need a humbling dose of reality. I got mine this week.
God is telling me once and for all that His grace is enough. Get it through your head, Kristy!
What is grace? We all have definitions and most of us forget the real meaning of GRACE. It sure is awesome to receive it but it can surely STINK to give it.
Bible Exposition Commentary says this about grace, “It is GOD’S provision for our EVERY NEED when we need it.” Wow.
Do you need to feel loved?
Do you need to be comforted?
Do you need to be delivered?
It also goes on to say, “It has been well said that God in His grace gives us what we DO NOT DESERVE, and in His mercy gives us what WE DO NOT DESERVE.”
Thank you JESUS!
It took a long time for me to rely on God’s strength during the stillbirth of my daughter, Mackenzy. You know “it was NOT fair” that this person was pregnant. It was not “fair” that “they” had healthy babies. I was a mad person. I never thought I would get past it. But you know what, I didn’t have A RIGHT to be a mom. It wasn’t my right to be a wife. Why did I think that I had a right to these things??? Why did I think I owned them? God owns everything, ya’ll. I mean everything.
I would not have gotten through the death of my daughter IF it weren’t for God’s grace being sufficient for me in my weakness. So, I come back to what God has been teaching me for 2 years now. HE IS ENOUGH. HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT. When I am weak then my Father can be glorified because we all know I can’t do it on my own. So, I say with boldness that only a child of God can say. No matter what happens here in my temporary and quick life, IT DOES NOT MATTER! My God, ya’ll…HE IS STINKIN’ MORE THAN ENOUGH.
Always At His Feet,
