I love doing word studies, going back to the original language, and studying more deeply what things mean.
One particular passage I have learnt alot from doing this says,“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness”. (2 Cor 12:9)
Grace is the free unmerited favour of God. It is favour shown to the unworthy and is an undeserved blessing and gift.
It also means privilege, pardon, and where God raises us from debasement to dignity and dishonour to honour; placing His likeness within us.
The word grace comes from the same root word as joy, or to rejoice. Grace causes rejoicing and describe God’s supernatural ability to work miracles, answer prayer, heal the sick, and bring deliverance.
I think grace is like a buried treasure; you experience more as you dig deeper and deeper into it. No matter how we have or continue to mess up, fail, disappoint ourselves or feel unworthy, God’s grace is sufficient. Sufficient means to be possessed of unfailing strength; to defend, ward off and be satisfied and contented. Grace enables us to exchange our feelings of unworthiness for God’s acceptance, our failures for His supernatural ability to work miracles and answer prayer, and our weakness for His strength
Whatever God asks of us, He promises His grace is sufficient and more than enough for the task. His grace is always available to sustain us.
What’s so amazing grace is that you can’t and don’t have to earn it. Grace is extended towards us, because Jesus bought and paid for it. As we find and experience more and more of God’s grace, it enables us to live free as we take hold of this gift and let it work in us.
.If you are feeling tired, worried, weak, unworthy or unaccepted, then you are a perfect candidate to experience God’s grace in your life today.
God’s Grace Is Enough for you!
Prayer: Lord, I need to experience your grace today. Thank you that your grace gives me supernatural strength and ability and that when I am weak, you are strong in me. I receive your grace right now. In Jesus name amen.
