If you’re like me, you get very frustrated when you realize you’re not perfect. You see other people’s lives via Facebook and think “I wish I was as good of a Christian as (insert name) is…” or “God’s not gonna answer that prayer because I haven’t been as good of a Christian as I could be.” I even tend to think I don’t read/pray enough for God to bless me. That is a lie straight from the devil himself. I am the worlds worst at not accepting God’s gift of grace or embracing His promises for my life. I am a child of the King and today is the day that I start proclaiming that!
Grace is the unmerited favor of God, or, simply getting what we don’t deserve. We deserve hell. We are sinful, unrighteous humans. But by God’s grace alone, He has given us the gift of eternal life.
We are incomplete.
We fail daily.
We are insufficient.
2 Corinthians 12: 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
He completes us.
He cannot fail us.
He is sufficient for us.
We have got to accept this. We cannot be perfect apart from Him. He is the only One who makes us righteous. When you don’t feel worthy or good enough, allow Him to complete you. He is always there when we need Him. God’s grace alone has the power to meet our needs. It is help in our time of need. It is enough. God’s grace is sufficient for us.
So let’s start today proclaiming His promises and embracing His grace.
Hebrews 4: 16 “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” John 14:14 “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” Romans 8:32 “He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?”
