His Grace is Sufficient

When we encounter troubles and we wonder where God is, Scripture reminds us that God says His grace is sufficient.  Sometimes His grace means He covers over the problem.  Sometimes His grace means we don’t feel the pain as acutely.  Sometimes His grace means that His hope sustains us for another day.  Sometimes His grace overflows so powerfully we become ashamed at our little problems and feel totally unworthy of His outpouring of mercy.

But sometimes, the pain hurts too deeply, the troubles are far beyond our ability to cope, the sadness is too profound, and the distress cannot be corrected by any man.  Sometimes God knows the benefit of our suffering is worth His not stepping in and solving it.  At these times, God wants for His glory to shine in the midst of our suffering.  When we’re tempted to give up because His grace seems far off from our present grief, Scripture reminds us that His grace is sufficient.  Maybe not lavish, over the top, wow-factor type grace…but enough to see you through.  What seems on the surface to be not quite enough somehow ends up growing and stretching and multiplying in our faith until it becomes a display of God’s amazing grace.

Where are you today?  Do you know His grace is sufficient?
