Last Saturday I attended a very powerful praise and worship at Emmaus prayer meeting. I would like to share one of the song that we sang, Your Grace is Enough which was composed by Matt Maher. I have known the song for quite some time, but only until last Saturday when I read the lyrics, it reminds me the story of Jacob wrestling with God. I think there are many songs that I just sing for granted without really reading and understanding the beautiful message and story in the song. This song is one of them. I want to share with you the beautiful lyrics that tell us about two stories; a story about Jacob and his descendant David, and also about one God who always gives us His Love and Grace.

Great is your faithfulness, O God of Jacob;
you wrestle with the sinner’s restless heart.
You lead me by still waters into mercy
where nothing can keep us apart

So, remember your people,
remember your children,
remember your promise, O God.

For your grace is enough.
Yeah, your grace is enough.
Yeah, your grace is enough.
Yeah, your grace is enough for me.

Great is your love and justice, God of Jacob;
you use the weak to lead the strong.
You lead us in the song of heaven’s victory
and all your people sing along.

And this is a short sharing by Matt Maher about the song which is taken from his website:

This is probably the oldest song on the record, and I’m thankful so many people have appreciated it. I wrote it when I was going through some hard times in my life. I found myself on the back patio at home with my guitar, reading the Psalms, and I kept singing the same word: “Remember. Remember. Remember…” In the Psalms, David is crying out to God to remember His people. I was fascinated by that and began writing this song I was calling “Remember,” asking God to remember us as we remember Him. When we recall the language of God’s covenant, we end up being in a space where God is already remembering us. The chorus came from Paul’s letter to the Romans, and the idea of the thorn in Paul’s side, begging God to take it away. I think in my mid-twenties, the thorn in my side was loneliness; I was like, “OK God, give me something to fill that space.” I think God comes to us and says, “No, I need to be enough.” – Matt Maher

This is the song taken from you tube, listen and enjoy! I hope this song helps to remind us that God’s abundance grace is always with us and for us, His beloved children. Have a blessed week ahead!
