Grace to overcome! – Sis. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran
“ My Grace is sufficient for you.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
Dear friend, today’s promise is from 2 Corinthians 12:9. The Lord says to you, “My Grace is sufficient for you.” Is God’s grace sufficient for us? It is more than sufficient. In James 4:6, Bible says, “God gives grace generously.” Yes, God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. The word grace means God is looking beyond our faults. So don’t take grace lightly.
We might say that we can do anything we want and His Grace will sustain us. But never try to hide your flaws because that will not help you in any way. Do not be deceived by the enemy. It is important to confess our sins every day. It may be small or great, but then it is so important for us to confess our sins and leave it. As the Bible says in Proverbs 28:13, “If you don’t confess your sins,” you will be a failure. But God will be merciful if you confess sins and give them up. Even today, confess and try to give them up.
When we were there in Nagaland recently, a young Boy called Bishal gave a testimony like this. When he was in class eight, he started smoking cigarettes and as the days went by, he started to have drugs. He was a failure in his life. But then one day as he watched the Jesus Calls program, as he watched me speaking, he was convicted of all his bad habits. The Lord touched him, and he became new. He really confessed his sins and got the abundant grace of God. He passed his examinations with 80% marks. The Lord has given him a beautiful job today. Along with his job today he is working for the Lord. What a successful life he is living today! He humbled himself and surrendered his life totally to God. The Lord’s mighty hand lifted him to great heights. Today the same hand is coming upon you dear friend. He is willing to pour out his grace generously upon you. Are you ready to receive His abundant grace today? Submit yourself to God. God bless you.
Loving Father, help me to leave all the bad habits and addictions in my life Lord. Father let your grace be sufficient for me, Lord. Even now as I am confessing my sins and let the addictions leave me. Let all the cravings of the evil habits leave me completely. Let your Holiness be poured upon me Lord. Touch me. Let your abundant grace come upon me to do good works. Lift me up to great heights oh God. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
