THE SUFFICIENCY OF GOD
Robert E. Hanna
Scripture Reading: II Corinthians 12:9
When the Apostle Paul pled with the Lord for relief from his affliction, the response was "My grace is sufficient for thee." We, who today are living in the dispensation of the grace of God, need to understand the all-sufficiency of God's grace. Its scope is limitless, but the dispensing of it is under the control of God alone. He determines when and in what degree we are recipients of His boundless grace.
God's grace is an unmerited, unearned and undeserved gift bestowed as the result of God's love and pity. "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us" (Titus 3:5). Potentially, there is no limit to the extent of the grace that God can impart, for "He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask orthink, according to the power that worketh in us" (Ephesians 3:20). Why then do we sometimes feel that God draws back from granting us release from our distresses when we plead with Him for resolution of our plight? Because He is God and by His determinate power "all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28).
We are to give of ourselves in His service without reservation (Romans 12:1). We are to willingly suffer for Him (II Timothy 3:12). "But my God shall supply all your need" (Philippians 4:19). Indeed, God's grace is sufficient!
