And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
It’s grace alone that has the power to transform lives. Grace alone has the power to bring freedom to the captives. By grace alone we are saved.
The amazing thing about God’s grace is his willingness to extend it to us, broken as we are. Have you ever felt as if you had no value? You are so precious to God that he gave his Son to redeem you. Who would do that? Only God; because washed in Christ’s blood, we are redeemed and justified and are heirs with him to the kingdom of heaven. God’s grace is sufficient enough to cover all sinners.
Today, as you consider God’s Word, as you believe in Christ Jesus, your Savior, your risen Lord, rejoice that you are at peace with God, that you are indeed, a redeemed child of God, and that God’s grace is sufficient for you.
Almighty God and Father, precious Lord and Savior, despite all of the challenges, all of the worries of this world, your grace is sufficient. Because of your love and grace you sent your one and only Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Clothed in His righteousness, we dare to approach your throne of grace; forgiven and redeemed children of the Most High. Heavenly Father, we cling to that promise of grace and forgiveness and praise your Holy Name. Amen and Amen.
Thank you God for your love that is beyond my ability to really understand. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be yours and to have the promise of eternal life with you when I leave this earth. Make your love so real in my heart that I will love others as you love me. Help me open my heart to your Spirit so he can mold me to be more like you every day. Use me to help others be strong as they seek to overcome sin and live for you. Empower each of us to win each battle against evil every day as we put you first in all things. I pray in the name of Jesus.

Maybe you need this word of encouragement today:
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
Do you feel this way about something in your life? You have seemingly been doing all the right things, with no visible results?
Today, I pray that you, nor me, will give up, but will reap the rewards in the proper time.
If we will serve with faithfulness, discipline, and integrity, God’s grace will empower us to do what he has called us to do. The wonderful blessing of God, however, is that he will renew us and sustain us and rekindle us.
Dear Heavenly Father, I am grateful for these lessons. it’s easy to become tired in giving, but I’m asking You to increase my desire and determination to be generous in all parts of my life. I pray that I may not lose heart or grow weary in doing the good works that You have prepared for me to do, and pray that in due time, I may reap a fruitful reward, Refresh me as I refresh others! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Have you ever thought about how our words impact others especially on social media. Words will make or break every relationship that we have. Our words will either draw people to us (kindness), or they will push people away (harsh).
Words, written or spoken, carry great deal of weight in our lives. Even if you need to speak words of correction to someone you can season those words with salt. That just means we can frame our words in such a way that even though they are corrective, they can be easily swallowed, or heard.
I don’t know about you, but I want my words to always be filled with generous amounts of God’s grace, and seasoned with heavenly inspired salt.
“Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouths, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.” Ephesians 4:29
“Father, I can clearly see how important my words are. Help me today to guard my words and only use words that build up the people in my world. May my words, whether spoken or written, be with grace and seasoned with salt. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
