SIMPLY GRACE
Memorise: And he said unto me, my
grace is sufficient for thee: for my
strength is made perfect in
weakness. Most gladly therefore will
I rather glory in my infirmities, tha t
the power of Christ may rest upon
me. 2Corinthians 12:9-10
After identifying the problem, King
Jehoshaphat in 2Chroniscles 20:4-13
refused to walk by sight but looked
up to God in the face of threats. This
was exactly what God wanted.
2Corinthians 5:7 says,
“For we walk by faith, not by sight”
Those who will be ready for God’s
use in these end times must be
ready to walk by faith and not by
sight. Our sense of sight is so limited.
Sight sees and speaks only of what is
available, but if you have to wait
until certain resources are
available, you may never achieve
what God wants done. For
instance, when God sent Elijah to the
widow of Zarephath in 1Kings
17:8-16, if she was to wait until she
had enough before accepting to take
in the man of God, she would most
probably have died during the
famine. Many times, if we were to go
by our physical weaknesses, we
would never have been used by God
to do the impossible.
The difference between what we
have and what we need for the
assignment is His grace. When God is
sending you on an assignment, He
knows your limitations before
asking you to go. If He cannot make
up the shortfall, He would not have
sent you. How can God pick up a
notorious robber, clean him up and
ask
him to go and start preaching to
people including those he once
robbed? Sight will say: Never; but
thank God for grace. How can God
give that assignment to you, inspite
of your low educational
qualifications, when it is meant for
professors? It could only have been
possible by grace. So trust His grace.
Accept that task the Lord is giving to
you because He had already
prepared to cover up the difference.
His grace will be sufficient for you.
PRAYER POINT:
Father, between what I have and what
I need to do Your assignment, let
Your grace cover up the difference.
