God is Good EnoughMarch 18, 2007
My [the Lord’s] grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.”
-2 Corinthians 12:9a NASB
How often do we forget that God will give us the strength we need? How often do we brush aside the greatest power in the universe? Too often, that’s for sure. It’s rather simple after all. God is on our side – all we have to do is live for Him.
True, that’s what I once thought. How can I, a mere human being, live for God? How can I give my all to Him? I can’t see Him, I can’t feel Him, I can’t talk to Him – so how can I put all of my trust into something I can’t see? That my friends is called: faith. What exactly is faith though?
1: confidence or trust in a person or thing
So, what I’m saying is, all we have to do is place our confidence and trust in the Lord, live for Him, and follow His commandments. If we do so, God will give us the strength we need.
Again, you’re thinking, “Yeah right.”
I thought that same thing as well. How, by any means, can we place that much trust in something/one that we cannot see? That is a tough one – and the answer isn’t an easy one.
We need to know there is a God, that He is the God of the Bible, He loves us, and that He sent His son to die on the Cross for us. Then live for God. If you do so, and truly believe it, and truly live it, faith (true conviction of the heart) will follow. Then the Spirit of the Lord will dwell in you and give you the strength you need for when the rain comes – for rain will come.
“And He [the Lord] has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I a weak, then I am strong.”
-2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NASB
God’s the only one we need. If we place our trust in Him, he will give us the strength so that “when we are weak, then we are strong” – through Him.
