HE IS ENOUGH

By Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

 

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.  Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2 Corinthians 12:9

As a child of God, you will never face a circumstance that exceeds His grace.  Where sin abounds, His grace will always much more abound.  When you are weak, He is strong.  When you are empty, He is full.  When you have no resources left of your own, His divine resources have not even begun to be depleted.  When you can't, He still can.

The truth is, whatever you're going through right now, His "grace is sufficient for you."  And whatever you'll go through tomorrow, or next year, or fifty years from now, His grace will be sufficient for you then too. 

His grace is sufficient to deal with the memories, wounds, and failures of the most scarred or sordid past.  His grace is sufficient for a lifetime of singleness or a half-century of marriage to a spouse with no interest in spiritual matters.  His grace is sufficient for a single mother trying to raise four children or a divorced dad trying to salvage a relationship with is kids around unreasonably restrictive custody arrangements.  

His grace is sufficient for the parents of three toddlers or three teenagers.  His grace is sufficient for the person who's tending to the care of elderly parents, for the empty nester, for the woman going through the change of life, for the widow living on social security, and for the invalid in a nursing home.  

We need to keep speaking the truth to ourselves and reminding those around us of its eternal reality.  In every season, in every circumstance, His grace is sufficient.  For you. And for me.

What situation in your life feels beyond the reach of God's grace? Counsel your heart with this truth: "His grace is sufficient for me!"
