“Three times I called upon the Lord and besought [Him] about this and begged that it might depart from me; But He said to me, My grace (My favor and lovingkindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for MY strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will ALL the more gladly glory in my weakness and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me.”
Life Point: “Jesus told Paul that His grace is sufficient for us; that His strength and power are made perfect in our weakness (see Corinthians 12:9). We become frustrated when we try to achieve by works a life that God not only brought into being, but designed to be received by grace. Grace is the power of God to meet our needs and solve our problems.” (by Joyce Meyers, The Everyday Life Bib
He is all I need. Jesus is the living water to quench my thirst, the heavenly bread to satisfy my hunger, the snow-white robe to cover me, the sure refuge, the happy home of my soul, my meat and my medicine, my solace and my song, my light and my delight. He is all I desire. ~Charles H. Spurgeon
All I need,
in Thee I see;
Thou art all in all to me.
~Thomas Hastings, 1858
