Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. II Corinthians 12:9 (NLT)
There are so many variables in life. It is good to have dreams, to make plans and to choose paths; however, you and I know that things don’t always go the way we plan. Troubles happen. So what do we do when things seem to get all messed up? We’ve asked for wisdom, for guidance, but now it calls for something more. It calls for grace. According to Merriam-Webster grace means “unmerited divine assistance”. This was given to us when we asked Him to forgive us. It was totally unmerited. There was nothing we could do to deserve it. So in today’s verse, Paul is saying that God wants us to live life in the same way we received His forgiveness that is to live by relying on His unmerited divine assistance. Paul did. When nothing was going right, Paul kept asking God to move in certain directions. But God said, “No, you’re going to have to trust me; but don’t worry, my grace is going to get you through.” This is what hope is about. This is what faith is based on. This is the reality of our walk with Christ, no matter what we go through, God promises that His grace is all we need! Today, admit to God your need for His grace in your life. Humble yourself before Him, and acknowledge His desire to see you through this day.
Father, I need You in my life today. I need Your divine assistance. I need Your amazing grace. I know that I do not deserve it. You have lavishly poured Your love into my life and I praise You. Thank You for all that You have done for me. Thank You that today, Your grace is all I need to get me through. In Jesus Name.
