“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” (2Corinthians 12:9)Text — 2 Corinthians 12:1-10
Grace has been aptly described as “God’s riches at Christ’s expense.” Grace is the unmerited favour of God on the undeserving. God’s grace supplies support, strength and power to His faithful children to accomplish various tasks, overcome sin, oppositions and to make heaven at last.
The text today reveals the source of Paul’s strength for victory. It shows the source of his array of successes in the ministry despite persecutions, trials, temptations and weakness in the body that stood ferociously against his determination to realize the heavenly vision of winning souls and making heaven. The primacy of God’s grace for success and breakthrough is a key lesson for all believers in Christ as shown in our Bible text above. God’s grace empowers us to overcome life’s challenges. To enjoy this grace, we must live a righteous, faithful, dutiful and prayerful life like Apostle Paul. God’s grace is like fuel; it fires the engine in our soul, spirit and body to run to triumph. Your strength isn’t sufficient to carry you through. Never stop to seek the grace of God.
