DAY 16 Sufficient Grace

2 Corinthians 12:9a ;2 Corinthians 1:5-6
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Suffering is not something that anyone looks forward to. It’s also something that people struggle with while it’s happening. Paul knew to suffer. 2 Corinthians 12 lists all the hard times he endured while preaching the Gospel. Sometimes the difficulties we face have nothing to do with what we have done but because of who we follow. There are those who oppose everything to do with Jesus. He told us that we would suffer because of His name. He said that people would hate us because of who he is, but not to worry because He has overcome the world.
So how do you cope when you have suffered for serving Jesus? Paul assures us that if we do suffer God will shower us with His comfort. Nobody wants to suffer, but when we do, we can be confident that God will be there for us and the comfort will exceed any suffering. If you are going through some bad times, look to God and let him shower you with his comfort. Paul knew the depth of the Lord’s comfort. He had endured incredible suffering as he ministered. When he didn’t think he could go on any further, he found that was when the shower of God’s love and comfort cascaded all over him.
