2 Corinthians 12:9 Amplified Bible
9 but He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you [My loving kindness and My mercy are more than enough—always available—regardless of the situation]; for [My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in [your] weakness.” Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ [may completely enfold me and] may dwell in me.
Inconsistency, Reflection, and Reality
Being true to myself. I ask GOD to remove this character revealed to me many times. I can not physically see my own face without the aid of a mirror or some form of a reflective surface.
Inconsistency in my words and actions “saying one thing and doing another.” Verbal inconsistency expresses itself as a lack of honesty. It is wise to say that both verbal and non-verbal communication impact the progress of our relationships and our success at work, in our personal lives and even our health and survival. So, how we communicate verbally and nonverbally is especially critical to us as human beings.
When I studied this scripture, the meaning rocked me to the core. 2 Corinthians 12:9 provided me with the meaning I don’t want to miss: “Sufficient for you is the grace of me.“
That is a promise the Lord told the Apostle Paul; “I am the grace. I’m all the grace you need.” Paul needed to see that God’s gracious strength and mercy were enough to maintain him even in trial.
Father In Heaven, I have so much on my mind right now. I can not sleep at night. I feel so overwhelmed. Your Word is what I pray. So right now, Father, I ask you to remove the inconsistency character and replace with honesty in my heart.
Father, I know You are in control and sees all things. I want to experience Your peace. So right now I am giving all of my worries to You.
