More Than Sufficient – Streams in the Desert 02/26

“My grace is sufficient for thee” (2 Cor. 12:9).
The other evening I was riding home after a heavy day’s work. I felt very wearied, and sore depressed, when swiftly, and suddenly as a lightning flash, that text came to me,
“My grace is sufficient for thee.” I reached home and looked it up in the original, and at last it came to me in this way, “MY grace is sufficient for thee”; and I said, “I should think it is, Lord,” and burst out laughing. I never fully understood what the holy laughter of Abraham was until then. It seemed to make unbelief so absurd. It was as though some little fish, being very thirsty, was troubled about drinking the river dry, and Father Thames said, “Drink away, little fish, my stream is sufficient for thee.” Or, it seemed after the seven years of plenty, a mouse feared it might die of famine; and Joseph might say, “Cheer up, little mouse, my granaries are sufficient for thee.” Again, I imagined a man away up yonder, in a lofty mountain, saying to himself, “I breathe so many cubic feet of air every year, I fear I shall exhaust the oxygen in the atmosphere,” but the earth might say, “Breathe away, O man, and fill the lungs ever, my atmosphere is sufficient for thee.” Oh, brethren, be great believers!
Little faith will bring your souls to Heaven, but great faith will bring Heaven to your souls. –C. H. Spurgeon

His grace is great enough to meet the great things
The crashing waves that overwhelm the soul,
The roaring winds that leave us stunned and breathless,
The sudden storm beyond our life’s control.
His grace is great enough to meet the small things
The little pin-prick troubles that annoy,
The insect worries, buzzing and persistent,
The squeaking wheels that grate upon our joy.
–Annie Johnson Flint

There is always a large balance to our credit in the bank of Heaven waiting for our exercise of faith in drawing it. Draw heavily upon His resources.

    I’m so glad that God considers me to be important. I’m always somehow putting others first, gee, I wonder where that comes from? LOL. I’m so glad that there is enough honey in the pot left for me and that I won’t run out, so there’s really no need for ME to go without. Does this sound familiar putting others first? I know God is a truly precious and loving God. I am so thankful that he is letting me know that I matter and that his Grace is not just for my loved ones and others, but is meant for me as well. He is my precious provider. Your website is such a blessing, and again Thank You. I pray that this reaches everyone who needs to hear these Words, today.
