In The Spirit Of Gracefulness
Surely, life tends to be challenging at times. Unheavenlies attempt to kick you down. Evil tries to keep you out of faithfully dancing in the Holy Spirit of gracefulness. The devil’s goal is to stop you from overcoming any proposed, fretting and fearful situation.
The gift of grace is what moves you to upward melodious progress. Gracefulness is not only determined by the in-unison steps according to the tempo. Gracefulness, and the elegance within, also is shown in the spins and turns and bends and leaps throughout life’s rhythm. And God is the Eternal Partner who gives you solid foundation and support along the way.
2Co 12:7 — 2Co 12:10
“And to keep me from being puffed up and too much elated by the exceeding greatness (preeminence) of these revelations, there was given me a thorn (a splinter) in the flesh, a messenger of Satan, to rack and buffet and harass me, to keep me from being excessively exalted.
Three times I called upon the Lord and besought [Him] about this and begged that it might depart from me;
But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) andshow themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, maypitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!
So for the sake of Christ, I am well pleased and take pleasure in infirmities, insults, hardships, persecutions, perplexities and distresses; for when I am weak [in human strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerfulin divine strength).”
2Co 12:9 — 2Co 12:10
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. 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.
