“He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.’ Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.” 2 Corinthians 12:8,9 (NIV)
“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed…” 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NIV)
I know how to manage life under the law, though not very well. I work and fail. In the court of my own mind I try to figure out a way to live with unbalanced scales and feel okay about it. But I don’t. In the end, I’m lonely in the futility of this hopeless endeavor. I begin to realize how little an idea I have on how to live with You by grace. Teach me.
Please start by reminding me though I feel alone and responsible to figure life out, I’m not (Hebrews 13:5). Lead me Good Shepherd and help me to follow (John 10). Tell me again how You are my Vine and I am Your branch (John 15). I want to quit starting my day alone and start it in You. Speak to me about what love truly looks like. I long to have it, long to give it (1 Corinthians 13). Lead me beside still waters with words that restore my soul (Psalm 23). Can we start there? I would really like that.
In Jesus Name Forever
