TEXT: 2 CORINTHIANS 12:8-10
8) For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
9) 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, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
10) Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
KEY VERSE: ISAIAH 65:24
And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
My child, always pray for the grace you need to choose My way. You then become caught up in the cycle of My grace. Grace is assisting you to make right choices (godly conscience and decision); grace to complete and fulfill. If your heart is fixed, fixed upon Me, it’s a far better way of living. It is yours to enjoy, moment by moment. You see that My promises are not too good to be true! You may have to be drawn away from some earthly things, so that you may be more and more lost in Me. This can involve sacrifice — but remember that the way is straight which leads to My kingdom. Because you are Mine, you are being led along a road which will bring you to knowing Me with increasing clarity and perfection.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
You may not always detect the provision I make for you, but you can be sure that the need which I see unfailingly brings forth that provision. It is later, when the various matters have been dealt with, that you can see so clearly what I have been doing. As you live just for each day you will never find My provision to fail in that day. You cannot know yet just how much My plans for you are being made perfect. You are utterly right to trust My faithfulness — protecting you, loving you, using you all the time.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The grace of God is sufficient to see you through all situations of life.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Give me the grace to follow. Abundant grace to follow.
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Psalm 47-49; Acts 26
