When God gives us a burden He gives us the grace to bear it: The sufficiency of God’s grace

2 Corinthians 12:9 says “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.”

Francis Xavier left wealth and position and set out across the world with the message of redemption through Christ Jesus.

It took energy and will-power for him to labour twenty-one hours out of twenty – four to learn to preach in twenty different languages in ten short years, to beg for passage on a troop ship, and later sail with pirates in unsafe vessels.

It took zeal and passion to sleep in tents with the Bedouins, cross the burning deserts and the snowy ranges of Asia.

It took commitment for Xavier to dare death in every form, shake hands with every ailment and diseases; endure the pangs of hunger and horrors of theft after a decimating shipwreck and bitter persecution. But he made a great impact in Japan.

Commitment is not a question of saying, Lord I will do it, but of doing it.

When David Livingstone was looking for people to come to Africa, he said, “If you have people who will come (to Africa) if they knew there were good roads, I don’t want them, I want men and women who are willing to come if there were no roads at all.”

Christ’s disciples stayed committed to him, we should do the same

When God gives us a burden He gives us the grace to bear it!

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!

  1. Thank you Bummyla: Good message on the grace God gives us no matter what the issue is. If you are hungry, He gives you food. If you are thirsty He gives you water. If you are sad, He gives you hope. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him. so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Rom 15:13) Ricklee

    1. Amen! I wish you the same Ricklee!
