God's Grace Provides All We Need!
God's grace provides ALL we have, need or want and through it we are what the
bible says we are
Ephesians 2: 8 For
by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it
is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared
beforehand, that we should walk in them.
God's grace is his abundant favour towards us and it's also His empowerment which
enables us to do all thing through Christ Jesus. Jesus is our grace.
I remember someone saying, "Without Jesus I can do nothing. But fortunately
I am never without Jesus!"
I thought that was a good motto to keep in mind as we go through our day. Problems
will come and Satan will try to make us lose heart or think that God is not responding
to us but the truth is God always hears. In fact, "Before we call
he answers us" (Isaiah 65:24).
On the cross Jesus said - "It is finished". Everything that
we needed was provided by Jesus in His suffering and His death. Our peace of mind and
mental health was paid for by the torment and torture he suffered willingly for us.
Our physical healing was paid for by the stripes he took on our behalf. And,
our salvation was paid for, bought by His death on the cross. Jesus did all that once
for all time, past, present and future, and he gives us authority to claim all of
them in His name. Paul learned this and was so full of grace that even an
item of clothing taken from his body would transfer the grace to heal to another
person needing healing.
As in Paul, Jesus said we would do even greater things than He did! That is the
power in us all through the grace of Jesus Christ in us, the hope of glory. Available
through faith in the Son of God.
What a GOOD God He is.
Best wishes for Grace and the Peace of Jesus.
