“I did my best but my best wasn’t good enough..” We are so familiar with this song and sometimes you will hear people saying that…
What I have learnt in my journey is that when our best is not good enough, God will complete it. The only thing God is asking us is to give our best – no more, no less. He will not ask us beyond our fullest capacity.
When you have given your best and still it’s not enough? Take courage! Don’t look down, look up as it’s just about time for God to show us what He can do. It simply means, He wants to take part of that dream. He wants us to be dependent on Him. He wants us to trust Him. If giving our best alone will satisfy that, we tend to take the glory. We tend to look to ourselves more when we should be focusing on Him.
I think that’s what faith and grace are all about. It’s taking God into the equation. Faith to be assured that God is with us. Grace that enables us to do things beyond our skills, strengths and even beyond the best of our best. So when we can honestly say we have given our best and still falling short, don’t be discouraged as God will definitely walk you through.
“Everything will be OK. When it’s not OK, it means it’s not yet the end.” – Anonymous. I read and heard this many times, and true enough, God will never fail those whose trust are in Him.
