The Sufficiency of God’s Strength 

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV

[9] And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. [10] Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 TPT

But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you,[a] and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me.[b] 10 So I’m not defeated by my weakness, but delighted! For when I feel my weakness and endure mistreatment—when I’m surrounded with troubles on every side and face persecution because of my love for Christ—I am made yet stronger. For my weakness becomes a portal to God’s power.

The Lord spoke to my heart recently while in prayer and said; 

“My strength is made perfect (complete; comes to its fullness only in your inability (weakness).  My strength will always take you to the finish.  I’ll be there when you get there. My strength does not have to compete with your strength for mastery because it is complete.  There is no insufficiency in my strength and ability.  My strength is only matured and perfected in your weakness. My strength grows as your strength lessens.” We don’t experience God’s strength until we encounter our true weakness. When we  are working from our ability , the supernatural strength of God is harnessed and unable to be released to reign. Gods strength is sufficient for the struggle before it is supplied.  We can’t make provision for our flesh fights.  Jesus, through the cross, provided the provision for our escape. If you continue  in your strength, the strength of God can not be maximally manifest.  Lean completely on God’s strength and allow Him to preserve yours.

Under His Mercy,

Apostle Nixon
