Another thought about enough…

But the Lord said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.   2 Corinthians 12:9

can you honestly say that the grace of god is enough for you?

we love talking about the greatness of god and the blessings he floats down on us.   right on the heels of answered prayers and good fortune come our praises extolling the power and love and protection and provision of a sovereign god who is in control of everything…the keeper of promises and prince of faithfulness.

but what about when difficulty comes your way?   does your song change?   most of the people i’ve been around in my life complain and whine in the bad times…and speak of how awesome god is in the good times.

human nature?   probably.   is it right?   no way.   the problem?   we miss the point.

life is not designed to be viewed through the lens of good and bad. as long as that is what we do,  we will be controlled by circumstances and driven away from what is really needed:   to be able to know that the grace of god is enough.   to know that jesus…and the surpassing contentment that comes from simply living in his presence through whatever comes our way…is enough.

enough. the great equalizer.

  1. As usual… good thinking and insight…. how do you come up with good stuff so consistently.

    My first thought… Job, Joseph, Daniel, Paul and a flock of others…. I think they got it…. if only we could.
