Do others see God’s grace at work in your life?
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV)
Do you choose to view your circumstances or the power of God and His grace resting upon you in this world? If man keeps his eyes focused upon his often adverse state of affairs, rather than keeping his eyes focused upon God, life can be looming and overwhelming. Keeping your eyes posted on the supernatural power of God working in your life, rather than any situations at hand, brings godly strength and contentment to life.
Individuals who personally know God understand that He is the spiritual power source operating and directing all events behind every scene. It is important to keep a focus held squarely upon Him bringing great contentment, joy, and peace despite any conditions found in this life.
Paul knew that God would bring him through any situation through the working of Hid supernatural power in his life. God’s power was boldly on display for others to see and desire for their own lives. Paul allowed himself to be shaped and used according to God’s will for bringing Him honor and glory.
