My Grace is All You Need

This verse has been on my mind and heart the last few weeks:

“My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Why? Because I have felt weak lately. Burdens, fears, and disappointments fill my thoughts.

My house hasn’t sold yet.

My grace is all you need.

I’m afraid people might not like my book.

My grace is all you need.

I’m struggling with feeling out of place, different from everyone around me.

My grace is all you need.

When Paul penned those words, they were the words given to him by God after he had begged three times for a “thorn in the flesh” to be taken away from him. We do not know if that thorn was a physical ailment, a painful relationship, or a burden he carried. What we do know is that it was placed in his life to keep him from becoming proud.

Through that painful “thorn”, God revealed that all Paul needed was God’s grace. And His power works best in weakness.

Same with us. All we need is God’s grace. So everyday this month I am reading these verses because I need to be reminded of this over and over again:

My grace is all you need.

How about you? What are you feeling needs to be resolved or finished so you can move on in your life? Or what burden/fear are you carrying around? Remember what God is saying to you:

My grace is all you need.
