Sufficiency of Grace in the Present Moment

"The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need."   (Psalm 23:1 NLT)

"If all that happens to a soul abandoned to God is all that is necessary for it, then we can understand that nothing can be wanting to it, and that it should never pity itself, for this should be a want of faith and living according to reason and the senses which are never satisfied, as they cannot perceive the sufficiency of grace possessed by the soul."  (Jean-Pierre de Caussade, SJ)

The Lord trains me to fight

"Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle."
(Psalm 144:1 NIV)

"Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.  For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places."
(Ephesians 6:11-12 NLT)
