Romans 8:35-37 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written: "For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter." 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
III. SUFFICIENT GRACE IS ALWAYS ACCESSIBLE
9 And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmi-ties, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Application: God°¶s refusal to take away Paul°¶s trouble was the motivation for Paul to seek God more earnestly, to depend upon Him more fully, and to trust him more completely.
When events occur in your life God°¶s motivation is just the same for you as it was for Apostle Paul. God wants to draw you nearer to Himself. He wants to make Himself more real to you and to anoint your life in a way that can happen only when you are completely dependent upon Him.
Hebrews 4:15,16 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympa-thize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Psalm 50:15 Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me."
Psalm 91:14-16 "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. 15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation."
Jeremiah 29:12-14 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, says the Lord
IV. SUFFICIENT GRACE, AS GOD, IS COMPLETELY CONSISTENT v.10
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christís sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Application: Grace is an attribute of God °V it is part of who He is. Just as you are who you are, God is who He is. He always acts out of His character, and His character does not change:
Malachi 3:6a "For I am the LORD, I do not change;
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Application: Since God is consistent and constant, so also is His grace.
Isaiah 58:11 The LORD will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought, And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered gar-den, And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
Hebrews 1:10-12 And: "You, LORD, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. 11 They will perish, but You remain; And they will all grow old like a garment; 12 Like a cloak You will fold them up, And they will be changed. But You are the same, And Your years will not fail."
V. SUFFICIENT GRACE IS EVERLASTING
7 And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan
