Greater Grace

Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:8-9)

When we go to the doctor and the doctor gives us medication, the doctor is in a position to increase the dosage of our medication if need be.

One time I had a spider bite on my leg. I was taking Keflex 500mg three times per day, but my leg kept swelling up more and more. So I went back to the doctor and he prescribed me a stronger antibiotic…Levaquin. And Levaquin took care of the infection.

When we go through things in life, we need God’s grace. The more nagging the situation, the more grace is needed. Like your doctor is able to increase your medication, your God is able to increase the grace He gives you for the things you go through in life.

My sixteen year old daughter is learning how to cook. She does a pretty decent job – especially when I don’t feel like cooking. I welcome her to in there and whip me up something.

Sometimes when she cook breakfast, her eggs stick to the pot real bad because the fire is too hot. And it’s hard to clean it, so I just let it soak in water for hours. As tough as it is to detach the eggs from the skillet, as hard as it is to clean that pot, all that’s needed is a lil soaking.

God’s grace is like “soaking.” No matter how immovable your situation is, how sticky, how big, God knows how to soak it in grace to soften it up over time. Won’t He do it?
