My grace is sufficient for you.
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
Greetings and warm wishes in the mighty and matchless name of Lord Jesus Christ!
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, here we look at an unusual way God answered Apostle Paul. Even it would be strange to know that the problem was not answered. From the verses preceeding the above verse 2 Corinthians 12:9, we could know about a thorn in Paul’s flesh. The thorn which could be a real problem that might be constantly nagging Paul. And three times did he pray to God for its removal. But God did not answer him in the intended way. God left Paul in that state itself. And told Paul that His grace is sufficient. Moreover the power of God is made perfect in weakness.
What does it mean? Well, the omnipotent and the omniscient God knows all and could do all. Here, God could have healed or decimated the problem instantly. But God chose to shower upon Paul His grace. Because no one can boast of their strength and their abilities and take away the glory of God. God’s grace alone is sufficient for us, because by it we keep God at the highest and give all the glory to Him. And also God’s power is made perfect in our weaknesses for His glory sake alone.
So brethren, let us be fully dependent on the almighty God and give all the glory to Him alone. In Jesus name. Amen.
