He Means it for Good!

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9

Losing my Dad when I was five years old was a profoundly sad time in my life. We all have those places of hurt and disappointment  – but we all share a common-ness in them as well: God has “good” on His mind!

I use the word good quite often, like, “Have a good day!” or “Be a good dog and stay!”  But do I embrace God’s point of view, that He uses everything – even the bad – for my good?!

The Apostle, Paul, had a constant troubling “thorn” in his life. He prayed three times for God to remove it, but God said this to him: My grace (favor and blessing) is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).

I have found that God operates powerfully in my life every day when I acknowledge my every need!

When I let Him rule through my dependence and surrender, my weaknesses, hurts and disappointments become vehicles  for His power!

Isn’t God “good” to do it this way!

Father, every day, renew my thoughts about your goodness to me – Your grace is enough – all I need!
