I called my daughter last night and my grandson Jacob answered. He wanted to tell me all about his new clothes and his news shoes and how excited he was for school to begin today. I asked him if I could pray for him and he said “yes.” As he said “amen” he began to tell me that Jesus talks to him every day. That He was going to school with him. “I see Jesus every day at school.”
Now let me be very clear. As much as I love Jacob and all my grandchildren, I know Jacob has a child’s side that can cause trouble for him and his mom. He can be stubborn, develop an attitude and more. But if I have learned one thing it is this. His grace is sufficient for Jacob. For me. For you.The last few days I have awakened early in the morning and hung out with the Father. This morning I reviewed my trip to St. Lucia earlier this year for my daughter Amy’s wedding. It took me almost as long to get there in my review as it did in the natural. I found myself swept up in questions and thoughts that I talked to Him about.
Wuest: And He has said to me, and His declaration still stands, My grace is enough for you, for power is moment by moment coming to its full energy and complete operation in the sphere of weakness. Therefore, most gladly will I the rather boast in my weaknesses in order that the power of the Christ [like the Shekinah Glory in the Holy of Holies of the Tent of Meeting] may take up its residence in me [working within me and giving me help]. 2 Corinthians 12:9
Have you felt weak? Is not a child weak by its immature nature? I just began to think of all the times God moved on my behalf. How He is moving in Jacob’s life.
All I hear God saying lately is “my grace is sufficient for you” to me. And so I am thinking more and more about the power of grace. I am completely overwhelmed when I realize His idea of sufficiency and what we perceive it to be are two very different things. We view it as “getting by” and I am pretty sure God is meaning that He is able, He is enough. He has already defeated our enemies. Made a mockery out of them. He is El Shaddai the all sufficient one.
He is walking into schools today with children. If He will walk with Jacob will He not walk with me? With you?
