God’s grace is so good…we’ll never be able to understand it. He chooses the most unlikely people to use in mighty ways.
When we realize we didn’t do anything to earn God’s grace, we’re humbled to trust God with those around us.
God no longer views us in light of our failures. He views us in light of His Son’s perfect righteousness and He leaves room for redemption. May we view others through this same lens, regardless of their past mistakes.
Because God meets us with undeserved grace, we are also called to extend grace to others. This is easier said than done!
While forgiveness doesn’t always lead to reconciliation, it does mean giving control to God and allowing Him to take care of the bigger picture. But even when forgiveness is hard, choosing it has an incredibly freeing impact on our lives.
God’s mercy is our hope because it is based on who He is in spite of ourselves. It’s an essential thing to believe in God but how cool is it to know that He also believes in you!
He knew every part of you and still called you into His Kingdom with an everlasting love. His arms are always open and His grace never runs out. So you can turn to him no matter where you are. The truth is, He never left you in the first place.
You never have to wonder if you are “good enough” for Him. He has said we can approach Him with boldness through the grace of His Son, He has made us new, and He has ceased our striving because Christ is enough on our behalf.
If it weren’t for the grace of God, you don’t know what you would do. The grace is there. As you tap into it, you’ll discover a force breathing in your direction: empowering you, enabling you.
God has given you grace for today and He has armed you with strength for every battle. We may not know what the future holds, but we do know Who holds the future. Don’t miss today worried about tomorrow.
Start believing you’re well able, start praying bold prayers, start declaring victory over your life. Don’t go around talking about how big the giants are, how you’ll never get well, never meet the right person, never start your own business. Zip that up. Start declaring, “This is my time.
God’s favor is on my life in a new way. I have the grace to rise higher, the grace to break this addiction, the grace to forgive this person, the grace to accomplish my dream.” Be bold; be strong. The Lord your God is with you.
