2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV “…“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”…”
Paul was facing certain challenges in his ministry, and he records in his letter to the Corinthian church, “Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” God was revealing to Paul that the challenges he faced were no match for him if he operates under grace. The grace of God is the power of God used on behalf of men.
For every assignment God has called you to fulfill, there is grace that is available in immeasurable quantities. 2 Tim. 1:9 reveals that God has called us according to His own purpose and equipped us with grace. This means that for as long as you are staying the course of your divine assignment your perceived weaknesses are not your limitation. God expects that you trust him for the grace to overcome, because in your weaknesses, His power is perfected in your life. As a Christian, once you have a conviction in your heart in a certain direction, you should not back down because of challenges, rather you should walk with God each step of the way leaning on Him for grace.
The walk of faith is one of complete adherence and trust towards God. Leaning fully and trusting in Him no matter what the circumstances present. As you lead this life of faith, you will be able to say “I am what I am by the grace of God” (1 Cor.15:10). That is the mantra of the one who has learned to live by faith, relying on God’s grace to attain to greater heights in life. Commit yourself to receiving God’s grace today.
