When our oldest son was about 6 years old we took him and siblings to a restaurant and they had a frozen yogurt machine that was self -serve. He stood up on his tippy toes pulled the handle down and the yogurt began to swirl down to his cone, which he held beneath it. I heard a cry for “help’ coming from him and looked to see he was trying with all his might to push back up the handle and stop anymore yogurt coming out, but he was not strong enough to do so and the yogurt kept coming and coming. Imagine with me, if I did not help him, he would have been covered in yogurt from head to toe. But eventually the machine would run dry as it could only contain a certain amount of the frozen yogurt at a time. “But God…” His grace is not like that. His grace is infinite, influencing, available and cannot be diminished, weakened, or dry up. In the original the wording is, “Sufficient for you is the grace of Me.”    “Sufficient” the word means, adequate, “ENOUGH.” The magnitude of the grace of God is beyond our comprehension but that does not mean we cannot avail of it. Paul in this passage in 2 Corinthians 12 gives us something of a glimpse of it as he testifies to the grace of God. He had been given some wonderful visions and revelations of the Lord” {v1-2}, A “thorn” had been given him so he would “not exalt himself” in light of the visions he had asked three times for the painful”thorn to be removed, an each tim he was met with the answer ” My Grace is ENOUGH, for power is perfected in weakness.”


“Enough Grace!”- 

Enough Grace to Understand- the purpose of the “thorn.” – “Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations there was given me a “thorn” to keep me from exalting myself.” –v7
* Enough Grace to Pray amidst pain. – “I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me,” v8
* Enough Grace to be Dispensed.- “ My Grace is Enough {sufficient } “-v9 \
* Enough Grace for Power to be unleashed in weakness – “…Power is perfected through weakness.” –v9
* Enough Grace to Boast irrespective of troubles – “I will rather boast about my weaknesses that the power of Christ might dwell on me.” – ‘v9
* Enough Grace to be “Content.” – ” I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with persecutions, with distresses, with difficulties, FOR CHRIST SAKE; for when I am weak i am strong.”– v10

Let your heart soar as you rest in the truth, you always have “ENOUGH!” grace, moment by moment! You can no more exhaust the Grace of God than a tad pole can drink all the water in the oceans! For each moment you live you have ENOUGH Grace.  The word “grace” is mentioned 155 times in the New Testament. Familiarize yourself with Him, His Word, His promises, His grace!

  • The Deficiency is not in the LORD.
  • The Deficiency is not in His Grace.
  • The Deficiency at times is in our view of God.

We were saved by Grace and yet we try and earn His favor and acceptance when He already has Totally Accepted you and me based solely on the performance of Jesus! We “stand” in grace and here is grace for us to operate our lives. His influential favor and enabling for us. {Ephesians 2:8-9; Ephesians 1:6;Romans 5:2}. Paul wrote,”not that we are Sufficient within ourselves… BUT our Sufficiency is FROM GOD”- 2 Cor 3:4. Note;

Looking to self = Deficiency.  “FROM GOD…” is your Sufficiency and Jesus Christ is ENOUGH. ENOUGH GRACE for you, whatever the circumstance. His abundant grace, is yours “In Christ!  The word “sufficient” means “ENOUGH” and with the implication…”SATISFIES!”   He is ENOUGH and His Grace Satisfies!  “ENOUGH!” Let your heart answer any testing, trail with this triumphant word of faith, -“ENOUGH GRACE!”
