God’s grace is sufficient in your weakness – whatever that is – today as well. If you are physically weak, spiritually weak, emotionally weak, or mentally weak, in any case, God promises to provide you the strength in your weakness today and this week. What an incredible gift from God!
Do you ever feel a bit overwhelmed? To be sure, all of us can feel overwhelmed sometimes. Pressures in life, unpleasant relationships, and busy schedules produce the environment that could encourage being overwhelmed. It has for me at times. In addition to the normal things that happen to us and around us, we also have our own weaknesses. For some of us our weaknesses may be physical, others mental, others intellectual, others social, and others spiritual. Weaknesses are common to man and abound greatly in some. As I have aged, I possess weaknesses now that may have been hidden with youth or have cropped up over time. God provides us good news though – God’s grace is sufficient in your weakness.
Do You Remember What God Told the Apostle Paul?
Immediately after discussing some powerful revelations to himself from God, Paul makes the following acknowledgement:
And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. (2 Corinthians 12:7-10)
