THE AMAZING GRACE OF GOD SUBSTAINS US

THE AMAZING GRACE OF GOD SUBSTAINS US

GOD’S GRACE THE FIRST DAY OF FALL (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Because of the sacrifice of the Messiah, his blood poured out on the altar of the Cross, we’re a free people—free of penalties and punishments chalked up by all our misdeeds. And not just barely free, either, but abundantly free! He thought of everything, provided for everything we could possibly need, letting us in on the plans he took such delight in making. He set it all out before us in Christ, a long-range plan in which everything would be brought together and summed up in him, everything in deepest heaven, and everything on planet earth.  (Ephesians 1:7-10 MSG)

The fullness of God’s grace is beyond human appreciation, comprehension or full knowledge. The riches of His goodness cannot be expressed or described by mortal tongue. We can only attempt to describe it, and our best efforts will be a puny approximation. We can admire the beauty of divine grace, but we cannot really explore its depths. At best we can only stand in awe at what we see, and exclaim with the Apostle Paul:

O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments and unfathomable his ways! For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who became his counselor? Or who has first given to him that it might be paid back to him again? For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever. Amen. (Rom. 11:33-36.)

So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever. (2 Corinthians 4:16-18 MSG)

We’re depending on God;
he’s everything we need.
What’s more, our hearts brim with joy
since we’ve taken for our own his holy name.
Love us, God, with all you’ve got—
that’s what we’re depending on. (Psalm 33:20-22 MSG)

    The beautiful thing about Grace is that it is something we do not have to earn, it is a virtue bestowed on us by God. What we must do is be aware and open to receive it, learn to live life in expectancy. Alow free range of the Holy Spirit in our lives, as God’s Grace flows around and through us to others, it returns to us blessed, through God’s grace. The message here is one that offers much encouragement for our weary souls as we are about life on our daily journey to the next level. Thank you so much for the beautiful work of art and expression of God’s Grace. Blessings
