My God is sufficient
11.28.15 My God is sufficient
Billy Graham's devotion
am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. —John 10:10
In God’s economy, you must go down into the valley of grief before you can scale the heights of spiritual glory. You must become tired and weary of living alone before you seek and find the fellowship of Christ. You must come to the end of “self” before you can begin to live. The happiest day of my life was when I realized that my own ability, my own goodness, and my own morality were insufficient in the sight of God. I am not exaggerating when I say that my mourning was turned to joy, and my sighing into singing. Happy are they that mourn for the inadequacy of self, for they shall be comforted with the sufficiency of God.
But he 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
We are saved through the grace of Christ, who paid the price of our sins.
Our works, such as repentance and keeping the commandments, do not save us, but they are requirements set by the Savior to help transform us.
God’s grace is divine power to help us with all of our shortcomings and is available to us at all times.
Too many are giving up on the Church because they are tired of constantly feeling like they are falling short. They have tried in the past, but they continually feel like they are just not good enough. They don’t understand grace.
Grace is not a booster engine that kicks in once our fuel supply is exhausted. Rather, it is our constant energy source. It is not the light at the end of the tunnel but the light that moves us through the tunnel. Grace is not achieved somewhere down the road. It is received right here and right now.
God’s grace is sufficient. Jesus’s grace is sufficient. It is enough. It is all we need. Don’t quit. Keep trying. Don’t look for escapes and excuses. Look for the Lord and His perfect strength. Don’t search for someone to blame. Search for someone to help you. Seek Christ, and, as you do, you will feel the enabling power and divine help we call His amazing grace.
My God is sufficient to meet all my needs.
God I come to You asking that You keep Your loving arms around all my facebook family and friends, if any of them needs reassurance about Your grace then God please show them. Know that I love You and I ask these things in Jesus Name Amen.
