He is my grace!! He is my strength!! His presence is my power!! All we need comes through closeness with Him. No matter what we face or no matter how hard, Jesus is the answer. “Sufficient for you is the grace in me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9). He doesn’t give what I need and then go somewhere else. He comes to stay. “I am with you always” (Matthew 28:20).
The Lord explains how HE is all the grace you need. “For my power is made perfect in weakness.” Perfect means fulfilled, accomplished, completed. God brings His powerful grace to the relationship; all I need to bring is weakness. All of this is grace because I can’t do anything to deserve what He does for me. God wants His grace to be completed in my weakness. I will not experience the grace unless I see the need for it and even that realization comes by grace. The power of Jesus’ grace is not fully seen until weakness is fully known. The moment I am overwhelmed in absolute helplessness is the moment I am ready to hear Jesus say, I’m all the grace you need!!
Father in heaven I pray for you to be my complete strength in weakness. I pray for grace. I pray for strength. I ask for your presence to be my power. Lord, be with me always! Complete in me a right heart. Lord, I ask for your powerful grace to cover my weakness completely! Your grace Lord is all I need!!!
