SUFFICIENCY IN GOD
Bible verse for today (move the mouse to the reference to read the verse)
2 CORINTHIANS 3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God
Comment
The Apostle Paul declares boldly that his sufficiency comes from God. Sufficiency means ability to do things. Often we are weak and helpless, unable to do what we would like to do.There are temptations we give in easily as we are unable to do otherwise. Our inability speaks volumes about our true state as man.Hence man needs God to grant him the ability to perform what is right. Paul had to learn to trust God completely inorder to get the Sufficiency which comes from Him.So the prerequisite of being sufficient is drawing near to God and admitting our insufficiency in the tasks and challenges we face.As a patient admits his symptoms the Physician is able to diagnose and treat, and so truly our Great Physician is our Absolute Sufficiency in our Terrible deficiencies. Amen. JP
