“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness”(2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV).
Something really silly happened to me a few weeks ago. We had just come home from a trip and as I emptied my suitcase I also placed my new travel laptop on our bed that was raised quite a bit from the ground. Unfortunately I was careless and so my laptop slid and very quickly fell onto the wooden floor. I knew right away that something was broken.
I could hardly believe that such a thing had happened to me. In that very moment I regretted my clumsiness so much and I sighed to the Lord. You know, my husband had told me over and over again to take better care of my belongings. On top of my shame and grief, my mistake cost us a couple of hundred dollars and with a heavy heart we had to decide against a repair.
What a precious grace came down that day from heaven and it is available to you too. It’s a free gift from your Heavenly Father with the purpose that your love, joy and thankfulness would grow strong and firm in Him. You will deeply experience this precious gift of grace in your weakness when God becomes your sole source of strength and hope.
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
