2 Cor. 12:9

Tom Harding

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–2 Cor. 12:9.

What a glorious promise is given to every believer. God's grace, given through our Lord Jesus Christ is all sufficient to the saving purpose of His people (Acts 15:11;). Grace is never said to be insufficient but always sufficient to accomplish its intent, purpose and glorious end (2Tim. 1:9). Sufficient, enough, plenty and adequate to justify (Rom. 3:24), to redeem (Eph. 1:6-7), to supply all our every need (Phil. 4:19;), to sustain us through all trials (Heb. 13:5), to strengthen us when weak (Heb. 4:16) . This mighty and sovereign grace appears to us most glorious, sufficient and appreciated when we realize our own weakness, inability and utter helplessness before God (Rom.7:24-25). "Most gladly therefore," do we rejoice in our own infirmities, and weakness that the power of our Lord Jesus Christ may rest upon us (Rom. 1:16), or tabernacle over us (Psa. 27:5), sheltering (Psa. 46:1), preserving (1Peter 1:5), protecting us from all adversaries and enemies of the gospel (John 10:2-30). Thank God for His unfailing, everlasting and all sufficient grace (Rom. 8:37; 1Cor. 15:57; 2 Cor.9:15).
