God has said it to me many times.
And I must admit that it’s very rare that I like it.
It’s very hard for me to hear.
Sometimes, I think it’s not fair.
I will think to myself, “You didn’t say the ‘N-WORD’ to him…or to her!”
I know that God is sovereign, and He can say whatever He wants to say.
I know He loves me…knows what’s best for me…and everything He does is always working for my good.
I know He knows me better than I know myself.
Yes, I trust Him, and I submit to His perfect will for my life.
But, that doesn’t make it hurt any less when God decides to respond to me with…
Sometimes I reason within myself, He really didn’t mean that.
Sometimes I will keep pushing, trying to force a different response…
But, still His answer remains to be…
As much as He loves me and gives me all of what I need and some of what I want…
Sometimes God has to say…
As much as I don’t like it, I still love Him and trust Him.
I take peace in the fact that His grace is always sufficient for me.
How do you react…
2 Corinthians 12: 8-9 (NKJV)
8 Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
