By Grace You are Saved
Thursday September 14, 2023
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8
Jesus said men ought always to pray and not to faint – Lk 18:1. He said this because prayer actually releases the grace of God into our lives.
Prayer is so important because grace is so important.
Grace empowers, lifts up and blesses the lives of men. Grace is God’s system for elevating men in life – “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6
The fact is, whatever you have today, you have only because God either helped or allowed you to have it. There is no one who can say No to the Father if He says He doesn’t want you to have something. So, because He has all power and knows everything, He either allowed you to have whatever you have today, or He helped you to have it.
By grace we are saved. Not just saved into the Kingdom of heaven, but into every blessing we are walking in, and will walk in later in our lives. You are not alive now because you are the best or the holiest. There are people better than you who are no more.
You did not succeed in the things you have succeeded in because you are so smart. There are people smarter than you who have never been able to do what you have done. You do not pray because you are the most committed. You pray because the Lord gives you the grace to pray.
For God is the One working in you both to will and to work according to His good pleasure. Phil 2:13
You could be going through challenges right now, but do you know that it is the Lord that has kept you. Some who went through similar challenges couldn’t bear it and they are no more, but the Lord has kept you strong and alive.
If you are doing well, you have to know that you have not gone ahead in life because you are more hardworking or smarter. There are people who are even more hardworking, but sickness and even death has hindered them. But God’s grace has kept you.
Increase that grace in your life by praying and speaking the Word of God more into your life today.
He is giving you more of His great grace, in Jesus Name.
I am speaking the Word of God into my life, and the grace of God upon my life is increasing. I am getting more of God’s power and help in my life, and I am fulfilling all of God’s dreams concerning me, in Jesus mighty Name.
