“but He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you [My lovingkindness and My mercy are more than enough–always available–regardless of the situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness.” Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ [may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me.”2 CORINTHIANS 12:9 AMP
The Lord’s grace is sufficient for all things and His strength is perfected in our weakness. In this life we will face trials and we will face challenges. But through it all the Lord will empower us to overcome.
He uses all things for our growth and our good. He desires that we would move from a place of immaturity to maturity. He desires that the fruit of the Holy Spirit be produced in our lives.
Those the Father loves He prunes. He doesn’t desire for us to stay where we are. He desires to lead us to deeper places in Him. Our journey with Him is throughout our lives on this earth and in eternity some day in His kingdom. May we have a right understanding and perspective off all we go through.
When the Lord allows us to go through trials it is not because He is angry with us or has forgotten us. It is because He loves us and understands that we will not grow in the place of comfort. May we be willing to be obedient in all things and allow the Lord to simply have His way in our lives.
