J.C. Philpot, “Strength Made Perfect in Weakness”)
“My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in your weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
Because Not your strength,
not your experience;
but “My grace“–My free, My matchless grace:
independent of all works and efforts,
and independent of everything in the creature,
flowing wholly and solely, fully and freely, out of the bosom of Jesus to . . .
or the guilty,
and the undone.
Because you who are tried in worldly circumstances, who have to endure the hard lot of poverty–“My grace is sufficient for you.”
But You who are tempted, day by day, to say or do that which conscience testifies against–“My grace is sufficient for you.”
Because you who are harassed with family troubles and afflictions, and are often drawn aside into peevishness and fretfulness–“My grace is sufficient for you.”
Therefore our weakness, helplessness, and inability are the very things that draw forth the power, strength, and grace of Jesus!
Believer, your case is never beyond the reach of the words–“My grace is sufficient for you!”
Therefore the free, matchless, sovereign grace of God, is sufficient for all His people–in whatever state, stage, trouble, or difficulty they may be in!
Because “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in your weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

Therefore how does God save His people from the pleasure of sin? The answer is, “By imparting to them a nature which hates evil and loves holiness.” This takes place when they are born again so that actual salvation begins with regeneration. Because Of course, it does—where else could it commence? Fallen man can neither perceive his desperate need of salvation nor come to Christ for it until he has been renewed by the Holy Spirit. A. W. Pink
