Originally posted to my blogsite August 8, 2019. We are not only weak in the face or the coronavirus, we are to a large degree at its mercy. We can do what is prudent (social distancing, sheltering in place, 20 second hand washing and sanitizing surfaces), and God would expect us to be wise. But at the end of the day, we still rely on His all sufficient grace, even if things go “south” for us.
My Musings – When we are covered by 1) God’s grace, through 2) His Son, we are plugged in to an awesome power base, 3) the Holy Spirit. But sometimes, (many times) we get in the way of that power by relying on our own strengths, which in reality are weaknesses. Once we acknowledge that, God’s power is perfected in our weaknesses.
Now for the understatement: “My grace is sufficient” (enough to meet the needs of a situation, adequate). Enough and adequate, hardly seem impressive. But the point is, no matter how small or how big the “situation,” God’s power will always be enough. God’s power is all we will ever need.
My Advice – Admit your own insufficiencies (weaknesses), let go and let God.
