Phrases like "God has a purpose in all of this." "Just keep trusting Him." "He will work things out." "All things work together for good to them who love God to them who all called according to His purpose." "Count it PURE JOY when you face various trials." "It will be worth it all when we see Jesus." "Cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you."
I've heard them all and, guess what, they are all true. I believe every one of them. They are biblical! But when these statements are dumped on you when you are in the dumps they can sound awfully hollow. I know! I've been there! I'm still there!
"His Grace is Sufficient" is another one. What does that mean anyway? His grace is all I ever will need? What about a job, a friend, a hot meal, warm clothing, shelter? Is His grace able to suffice in these needy situations?
All I can say is YES. I can't explain it. I don't always "feel" it. I sometimes doubt it. But when I come to the end of the day with all of its "stuff", I can sing "His Grace is Sufficient". (click on the link) Because it just IS. Believe me!
