But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”2 Corinthians 12:9
I was tired, hungry, frustrated and I all I wanted was to get home. The ride had been nerving with sheets of rain and bumper to bumper traffic. I finally made it to my exit and there, my hopes of getting home were quickly dashed when I pulled up behind a long line of cars waiting at the railroad tracks. Heaving a heavy sigh, I leaned back in the seat and cast my eyes upward. As I waited the rain began to slow and the dense cover of gray began to lighten. When I sat upright, I saw one of the most distinct rainbows. Each of the colors was bold, spaced perfectly and brilliantly glowed. It looked as if it were rising just before me. So close I wondered if it were possible to touch. My eyes followed the bow to its end, just across the railroad tracks. Each row of color no less bright than at the starting point. I smiled. God was giving me a reminder.
Many times, in our life’s we run up against obstacles. It can be our health, finances, people and sometimes it is ourselves. The good news is that no matter what you are dealing or faced with, God’s grace can reach you and remains with you before, during and continues with you after the obstacle has passed.
Grace is all we need. It does not mean that things will turn out the way you want, or that every prayer will be answered but it does mean that no matter what you face his grace is sufficient to see you through the trail or tribulation that you face.
When you are weak, Jesus is strong.
