“My grace is sufficient for you.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)
Grace takes on an added dimension here. Paul is referring to sustaining grace. Saving grace saves us from our sins. Sustaining grace meets us at our point of need and equips us with courage, wisdom, and strength. It surprises us in the middle of our personal crisis with ample resources of faith. Sustaining grace promises not the absence of struggle but the presence of God.
God has sufficient, sustaining grace to meet every single challenge of our lives. Sufficient.
— Max Lucado in “Grace: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine”
