How effective is grace in our lives, God’s enabling ability? Do we receive His grace or do we continually attempt things in our own ability and power? His grace is for each day. Yesterday’s grace will not work for today. We cannot receive grace in the future for the current day. Do we ask the Holy Spirit for grace each day, realizing that we cannot successfully make it through the day without grace? Grace is the resource for the little things as well as the big things, it is for everything we do. Without His grace daily, we are in trouble.
We need grace daily to live our lives for the Lord, to walk in His ways, will, principles and standards, to live according to the Word, to be a light, be Christ-like and the share the good news of the gospel. His grace is always sufficient.
We can’t receive His strength and ability, when we are trying to do it ourselves. We realize His grace is sufficient, when we realize we are insufficient. Most people, believers included, want to rely on self. When we humble ourselves, submit to the Lord, grace can operate. When we are in pride, believing we can handle everything, do it ourselves, grace will not operate. Grace is the power of God to fulfill what we lack.
Paul is having an issue went to the Lord three times and the Lord said in II Corinthians 12:9-10 (NKJV) “9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” Whatever our shortcomings, our frailties, the Lord’s grace (His enabling ability) is sufficient, enough to help us, bring us through etc. We will not be able to say, “I did it myself” but give God the glory that He helped us.
