But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me! (2 Corinthians 12:9 AMP)
This is one of the most beautiful verses in the Bible to me. I guess we all do, but i feel my failings. They sting.Not being married yet feels like what did i do wrong, what did I not do, who am I that i can’t accomplish this skill of the heart? “But He, my Savior, said to me “my grace and mercy are on you. They are sufficient for you.” To feel His grace and mercy is rest while you’re walking. It’s love when someone’s in need. It’s a warmth when you are in need. This love and mercy help us handle trials manfully or girlfully. But we got it handled! God’s power shows off best in our weakness. I am weak. I’m not a good cook. I stumble with a little temper. I’m not always joyful. But in my weakness He can show off His generous grace to my heart. So my Savior and me are doing what i love best, He’s pitched a tent of power over me and we’re resting and camping in grace.
