His Grace Is Sufficient

“Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves! About three o’clock in the morning, Jesus came toward them, walking on the water!” Matthew 14:24-25

God adapts His grace to the peculiarities of each of His children’s necessity. For rough, flinty paths–He provides shoes of iron. He never sends anyone to climb steep, sharp, rugged mountainsides–wearing silken slippers. He always gives sufficient grace.

As the burdens grow heavier–His strength increases.
As the difficulties thicken–He draws closer.
As the trials become sorer–the trusting heart grows calmer.

Jesus always sees His disciples when they are toiling in the waves, and at the right moment comes to deliver them. The sharper the temptations–the more of Divine grace is granted. There is, therefore, no environment of trial or difficulty or hardship–in which we cannot live beautiful lives of Christian fidelity and holy conduct.

“My grace is sufficient for you!” 2 Corinthians 12:9
