God’s gift of grace has kept me from so many situations. Like this scripture:
“For You are my hope; O Lord GOD, You are my confidence from my youth. By You I have been sustained from my birth; You are He who took me from my mother’s womb; My praise is continually of You.”(Psalm 71:5, 6 NASB)
God is and has been your hope and salvation your entire life. In the silly days of your youth, He shielded you from danger, guarded you from your own choices, and preserved your life from death more times than you even know. God’s gift of grace reaches past salvation.
Sure, He saved us by his grace, we couldn’t merit it or earn it. He just did it because He is wonderful. But, that’s not it! He continues to “save” us from so much. God’s gift of grace saves us from pain, grief, heartache, illness, and so much more.
I found a cool article on BibleStudyTools.com where the gift of God’s grace is broken down in segments. Click here to check it out.
Take a moment to just “think” about all the things that could have happened in your life…but they didn’t. It was all because of God’s gift of grace and His tender mercy, Christian Woman!
Without Him, who knows where you would be right now. Who knows what state you would be in. Do you ever think about where you’d be without the Lord? I do and that’s exactly what motivated me to write this. Wow. I’m so blessed. You are too. He loves us so much.
Regardless of what is going on in your life today, do know His grace kept it from being worse. He’s always been behind the scenes working on your behalf, protecting your destiny, and conforming you into His image. The best news is that…you didn’t even know what He was doing!!!
Trust Him with your today and your tomorrow. He’s up to something good in your life. Know He is your Keeper, Protector, and Sustainer….just as He’s always been!
Have you opened the gift God has given you?
In His grace, He’s provided you peace.
If you’re worrying, you haven’t. He’s provided you confidence.
If you’re walking in fear, you have not opened your gift. He’s gifted you with salvation eternal.
If you haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as Lord over your life, you have an unopened gift.
Have you opened your gift? Or just barely revealed pieces of it?
