Part of learning to deal with a chronic illness is learning that God’s grace is enough.
Today’s Bible Verse:
2 Corinthians 12:9 (KJV), “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.”
What the Verse Means:
Suffering uncovers your heart’s weaknesses so that Christ is your strength. God’s grace is amazing and all-sufficient.
Personalized Prayer Using Today’s Scripture:
- Heavenly Father, help me to cry out to you in my weakness and claim your promise that your grace is sufficient for us, for your power is made perfect in weakness.”
- Thank you, Lord, for providing your sufficient grace.
- Teach me how to boast even more gladly of our weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. I don’t understand how but trust in you for my strength to be made perfect in weakness.
- I ask for strength daily as I work. Give me the grace I need, and I pray for the power of Christ to rest upon me. The only boasting I will do is to acknowledge my weakness and your sufficiency.
