The Power of His Grace

Today's Scripture

“When he arrived and saw the evidence of the grace of God, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts” - (Acts 11:23).

Thoughts for Today

As God pursues us with His wonderful grace, something magnificent takes place in our lives. Before God’s grace was extended to us, we were dead in our sins and powerless to overcome them. We were in bondage to the enemy, and the future never looked so dim. Then, God entered the scene, desperate to demonstrate the power of His grace.

After Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, the Bible begins to tell the unfolding tale of God’s pursuit of the human heart through the goodness of His grace. And each time God catches us and reveals the power inside His grace, our once-dead souls become alive! Instead of being unable to fight sin’s strongholds, God’s grace gives us the power to overcome them through the Holy Spirit.

Now, we come to the battle equipped to win—not just to survive another round. God’s grace empowers us to be conquerors through Christ, redeeming what once seemed all but dead.

God entered our lives to save us, not just to show up and to impress us with His omnipotence. He came to deliver us from all the bondage of the past and to bring us ultimate redemption as we follow after Him.

Through salvation, we encounter God’s grace. Then, one day His transformation begins in our hearts. All along, He pursues us with His grace in an attempt to get our attention. Even though at times we may have run in the opposite direction, He remains steadfast in His quest. When He captures us, the parts of our hearts that were cold toward Him suddenly warm and come to life.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for the way You pursued me and called me into relationship with You! Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.
