Nothing Is All You Need
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
- 2 Corinthians 12:9
God created the world out of nothing. So don’t get concerned when you come face to face with your limitations. As long as you have nothing, God has all he needs to do something.
Sadly nothing is the one thing many of us don’t have. Meaning many of us feel we need to be strong. We need incredible courage. We need to pen a perfect plan. We need a flawless record and hours longed in prayer.
This isn’t true. Grace is all we need. God’s power is made perfect in weakness, which means we can come with nothing and trust that God will take care of everything.
- Do you tend to live each day in your own strength or resting in God’s strength?
- Why is it important to realize that we really have nothing to offer God but God is gracious and wants to give us everything we need?
- What would it look like in your life today for you to rest in God’s grace?
