Good Morning June 21

When there is a problem we want a solution. We want to bring in the biggest guns possible to deal with whatever is needed. But this doesn’t always happen. Sometime, maybe more often than not, problems seem to go on and on. This was the case for St. Paul when the Lord said to him, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”(II Corinthians 12:9) When we have the big guns, we really don’t need the Lord. It is when we know we are weak, when problems are too big for us, that the Lord’s grace is manifest. All Scripture teaches us to trust in God, to become quiet in heart and rest in Him, and not to be anxious. No, this is not easy when we are faced with difficult situations, but the Lord has promised never to leave us, and He has not failed us. Problems aren’t always solved the way we want, but His grace is always sufficient for our needs.
