And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.–2 Corinthians 9:8
God says what He means and means what He says. When He says, “all” He means “all”. End of story! Notice all three “all’s” found in this verse–“all grace”—“all sufficency”—“all things”. In every case nothing is lacking, incomplete, or excluded. God said “all”. One preacher called this “is a three-fold link in a golden chain, let down from the throne of grace by the God of grace.”(John MacDuff)
Notice that grace doesn’t just exist–it abounds. It is inexhaustible–like a great river that just keeps flowing. At this very moment millions are drawing from its vast supply, yet it is not diminished in the least, not even a drop! Regardless of how much we receive there is always more, more than enough.
Do you live in the sunlight of this precious promise? Or are you in a dark corner of despair, dwelling on the magitude of your miseries? Do yourself a favor and get your focus off of self and set your sights on God. Regardless of our situaton we may receive “grace upon grace”. There is “grace in all our circumstances and situations, in all vicissitudes and changes, in all the varied phases of the Christian’s being. Grace in sunshine–and in storm; in health–and in sickness; in life–and in death! Grace for the old believer–and the young believer. Grace for the tried believer, and the weak believer, and the tempted believer. Grace for duty–and grace in duty; grace to carry the joyous cup with a steady hand–and grace to drink the bitter cup with an unmurmuring spirit; grace to have prosperity sancitified–and grace to say through tears,’May Your will be done!’.”(John MacDuff)
Indeed, there is grace enough for everyone, at all times, in all places, and all circumstances. It is absolutely amazing abounding grace. Keep your focus there and your life will be blessed with rainbows and roses.
