🎤”MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR YOU” (2 Cor 12:9)
There is something that we all must learn from St. Paul today. That is the art of seeing the hand of God at work in whatever happens to us in life. When Jesus says that he would be with us till the end of time (cf. Matt 28:20), he means it. And that also includes the dark and difficult moments of our lives.
Everything works unto good for those who love God and put their trust in him (cf. Rom 8:28). And that is the point which Jesus strongly makes in Matt 6:24-34. If God cares for ephemeral things like birds of the air and grass of the field, how much more man who is held precious before God as the apple of his eyes!
Therefore, trust God in all things, knowing that even your present challenge would not stand the test of time. Even if does, understand it to be a stepping stone and not a stumbling block because the grace of God is sufficient for you.
And may the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us (2 Cor 13:13) both now and for ever. Amen.
Have a grace-filled and restful weekend. Peace be with you.
