“Our sufficiency is from God.”  2 Co 3:5 NKJV

hr is t i  an counselor Dr. Ann Shorb writes, “Each morning I reach for an assortment of nutritional supplements. Each has something I need, but not one by itself is enough to provide everything: Here are the ·spiritual supplements” she says she takes: /1) His death on the cross is sufficient for my salvation: “He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him… He… lives to make intercession for them· (Heb 7:25 NKJV). /2) His strength is sufficient for my weakness: “He gives strength to those who are tired and more power to those who are weak· (Isa 40:29 NCV). /3) His authority is sufficient for my struggles: Jesus said, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and… earth. Go therefore· (Mt 28:18-19 NKJV). /4) His power is sufficient to restore me: ‘The Lord upholds all who tall, and raises… all who are bowed down· (Ps 145:14 NKJV). /5) His wisdom and knowledge are sufficient to direct me: ‘He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me,1  shall come forth as gold” (Job 23:10 NKJV). /6) His grace is sufficient for all my needs: “My grace is sufficient tor you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness· (2 Co 12:9 NKJV). sometimes you’ll hear Psalm 51:12 quoted as “Restore unto me the JOY of my salvation,” instead of “Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation.” There’s a big difference! My salvation means me working to be saved and never knowing if I’ve done enough. Thy salvation depends totally on Christ’s finished work on Calvary. It acknowledges that while we’ll never be ·sufficient of ourselves… our sufficiency is from God.”
