“‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness…’” 2 Corinthians 12:9a
I love this verse because it’s so simple, yet profound. It’s one of those verses that is easy to memorize and as a result, pops into one’s mind readily in trying times. It’s a comfort, not only because God has promised His grace is sufficient, but because in this passage we are reminded that the Apostle Paul suffered a great deal in his life. If God’s grace was sufficient for all Paul endured, surely God’s power can be made perfect in our own weaknesses, as well.
I’ve found in my own life that when I have reached a point where I don’t think I can endure any longer, crying out to God and telling Him honestly and openly, “Lord, I’m weak. I’m tired. I’m hurting. I can’t do this…” is so freeing. It’s then that I hear His still, small voice speak the above verse and He fills me with supernatural strength and peace.
Have you experienced this? Meditate upon this verse and hide it in your heart so you will be reminded of His sufficiency the next time you feel weak.
