Continue in God's Grace
Acts 13:43 (New International Version)43"When the congregation was dismissed, many of the Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who talked with them and urged them to continue in the grace of God." I have to remind myself that I have God's grace on me to live the life he has for me and fulfill my assignment on this earth. I have also come to realize that when I live my life differently from the "norm" of others that I am walking and living under a special grace that others may or may not understand. I am sure some of you know what I speak of. God's grace gives us a peace that passes all understanding and helps us to remain calm when we see others cracking under the stress of life. Don't get me wrong there are days I seem to be cracking under the stress of life but the difference is I close the door and pray for God's grace and wisdom to manifest itself in my spirit and life. It's true I have failed and fail but I keep pursuing Jesus and his word and he gives me the grace I need. Aren't you glad and comforted by the fact we have a God who is engaged in our life and has given us his Holy Spirit to remain with us on this earth as our comforter. Hebrews 4:16 (New International Version)16"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Today is a good day to boldly approach the throne of grace and receive the grace to help you deal with whatever your going through. We serve a loving God.
