When people start getting on my nerves I know it’s time to go back to the throne of grace. When I’m getting uptight and stressed I’ve know I’m running on my own resources. When we need something that we don’t have, it is time for Grace. Grace is our Fathers gift to us, to make up the difference between our weaknesses and Christ’s completeness.
Delilah gave Samson the most expensive haircut in history. His strength was removed from his heart before his hair was removed from his head. Grace is not found in the presence of “Delilah” but in His presence. The Holy Spirits grace and power doesn’t leave us but His influence stops flowing when we stop drawing from Him. Paul knew that the only way to overcome abounding sin is abounding grace. “Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more” (Rom 5:20). And he knew that the only way to overcome abounding troubles was also abounding grace. “And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
You don’t have to be a strong vessel so long as you have a strong treasure inside you. The Greek word “sufficient” was a word used to describe a person who had unlimited treasure and financial resources. Imagine having a credit card with no limit which somebody else would pay off. That’s how sufficient and abundant His Grace is. You truly can master the moment because you can’t exhaust Gods resources for you. It will keep flowing from the throne to every one that comes boldly to the throne. Every day when you face a moment where you don’t have enough in your self, you still have the Masters card. Whether we need to overcome sin or overcome in our troubles, it is time for Grace and Grace is a person.
Friend, grace makes up the difference between our weaknesses and Christ’s completeness. Possessing the Spirit of grace was so important for believers that Jesus told them to wait in Jerusalem till they got it. So don’t leave home without Him!
