But be always growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be all glory, both now and to the day of Eternity! [2 Peter 3:18 Weymouth]

As Jesus followers, the grace of God is the breath of life we thrive on. Our heavenly Father makes provision to resource us with His grace, so we can live for Him with an understanding inspired by heaven. God’s grace is embedded in the countenance of God’s presence. It can strengthen and encourage us, liberate and direct our path, bring understanding to situations, lead us to pray, etc.

And now out of his fullness we are fulfilled! And from him we receive grace heaped upon more grace! — John 1:16

God’s grace demonstrates His heart towards humanity. We have no option but to give ourselves on to the grace of God. Where would we have been if not for the grace of God? Our very existence is a result of His grace. By His grace are we daily enabled to keep our gaze on Him. How necessary it is for us to pray to abide in His grace always.

Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. — 2 Corinthians 12:9

Although, the disobedience to God by Adam and Eve in the garden made man fall from grace. God readily restores it to us when we surrender to the Lordship of Jesus. The Holy Spirit constantly supplies us with grace, so we do not derail off God’s purpose. Our very salvation stems from grace.

At any point, we may be drained from the cares of this world; let us be quick to lean towards grace to navigate our way through.

Dear Lord, I am eternally grateful for Your grace. Please bring me to a place where I never take Your grace for granted and derail from Your will in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
