   “我的恩典是够你用的。”(林后12章9节) 
  神乐意在我受特殊试炼和痛苦的环境下,将我最小的孩子取去;当我将孩子安放在坟墓里,回到家中以后,我觉得我应该对弟兄姊妹们宣讲一些试炼的意义。
  我就选择这个题目来作主日的信息;但是在我预备资料的时候,我发现我所要讲的,连我自己也不能相信;我就跪下来求神给我够用的恩典。我这样恳求了之后,张开眼睛来看见一幅彩色的经文——这幅经文,是前几天我陪着孩子在游息所的时候,我的母亲送到家中来的;我虽然未曾看见过,却曾听见过我的仆人这样告诉我,我也曾吩咐我的仆人将它挂在墙上。
  在我回家以后,我也未曾去注意上面的字句;这时候,我仰起面来,拭干了眼睛,幅上的字句吸引了我的注意:“我的恩典是够你用的。”
  “是”字是鲜绿色的,“我的”和“你”是另一种颜色。
  这个信息立即进入了我的心内,责备我不该求神给我够用的恩典;因为神已经很清楚地告诉了我;“我的恩典是够你用的,你怎么还来要求?只要起来相信,你就要发现这句话是多么真实!”神已经用最简易的字句告诉我们:“我的恩典是(不是将要或者也许)够你用的。”——韦迫伯鲁
       "IS." (2 Cor. 12:9.)
      IT had pleased God to remove my youngest child under circumstances of peculiar trial and pain; and as I had just laid my little one's body in the churchyard, on return home, I felt it my duty to preach to my people on the meaning of trial.
      Finding that this text was in the lesson for the following Sabbath, I chose it as my Master's message to them and myself; but on trying to prepare the notes, I found that in honesty I could not say that the words were true; and therefore I knelt down and asked God to let His grace be sufficient for me. While I was thus pleading, I opened my eyes and saw a framed illuminated text, which my mother had given me only a few days before, and which I had told my servant to place upon the wall during my absence at the holiday resort where my little one was taken away from us.
I did not notice the words on returning to my house; but as I looked up and wiped my eyes, the words met my gaze, "My grace is sufficient for thee."
      The "is" was picked out in bright green while the "My" and the "thee" were painted in another color.
In one moment the message came straight to my soul, as a rebuke for offering such a prayer as, "Lord, let Thy grace be sufficient for me;" for the answer was almost as an audible voice, "How dare you ask that which is?" God cannot make it any more sufficient than He has made it; get up and believe it, and you will find it true, because the Lord says it in the simplest way: "My grace is (not shall be or may be) sufficient for thee."
      "My" "is" and "thee" were from that moment, I hope, indelibly fixed upon my heart; and I (thank God) have been trying  to live in the reality of the message from that day forward to the present time.
The lesson that came to me, and which I seek to convey to others, is, Never turn God's facts into hopes, or prayers, but simply use them as realities, and you will find them powerful as you believe them. --- Prebendary H. W. Webb Peploe.
      He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
      He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
      To added affliction He addeth His mercies,
      To multiplied trials His multiplied peace.
     When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
      When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
      When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
      Our Father's full giving is only begun.
     His love has no limit, His grace has no measure,
      His power no boundary known unto men;
      For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
      He giveth and giveth and giveth again.
      ─Annie Johnson Flint.
