I’m a gal stepping into life trusting in my Father’s sufficient grace to see me through life today, dear family of saints! I have always been a wanna do it all because all of life is oh so exciting and adventureous and I am also a wanna do it all perfectly type of gal because I desire my Father to be glorified through my efforts in life! One of the things that my Father has had to reveal to me is that I cannot do all, nor can I do things perfectly because my Father never intended that for me or you, precious one!
Our Father created us to be a needy body of believers that make up the church of Christ and He created us all to need His empowering grace to enable us to each do our part!!!!!!! Hence, where I lack and where you lack is where we need each other and others and the grace of Jesus! How unitedly divine and awesome is that!!!!!!! Where our Father’s grace gives you and me strengths, He works through us to help each other to carry out His will, His plans and His purposes in this world! Did I mention how divinely awesome that is, family!!!!!!! Together we can do great things and apart from all of us together and without the grace and wisdom of our Father, this is how our Father sums it up:
“I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man (gals, too) remains in me and I in him, he (she) will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
The Apostle Paul got this! He was very open to share his great zeal for life and his confessed limited wisdom which led him to encounter the Truth of Jesus and his need for other Christians in his life to help him successfully carry our Father’s will, plan and purpose for him into the world. He actually boasted about his weakness and his need for Christ, because he understood that it was in his weakness that the Lord was revealed in making him strong and successful in life. He believed God when he said:
“My grace is sufficient for you.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
It is by grace in all of life that we are saved so that nobody can boast! None of us can do life on our own, so when that devil dude seeks to convince us we are weak and incompetent, let’s just simply reply to him and say “Yep! That is how our Father intended it so that in our need for Him, we can have faith and trust and hope and sufficiency and yep, with Jesus, we’ve got it!” YEAH, BABY! WOOHOO! GO FOR IT JESUS IN US!!!
Jesus knows the plans that He has for each one of us and these are His plans for us:
“…to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Prayer to our Father for His wisdom and sufficient grace to enable us to do life is our greatest need for victory and sometimes in seeking that wisdom, He chooses to speak through others!
One way or another, He will provide us what we need when we seek Him first in life! I am sooo thankful for that! Our Father has said:
“Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord.”
“The eyes of the Lord roam throughout the earth to strengthen those who are fully committed to Him.”
2 Chronicles 16:9
I’m a gal fully committed to my need for the grace of Christ to enable me to do all of life. How about you? It is for our Father to receive all glory! To Him glory be!!! Here is a song for us to worship our royal King with today, along with a huge room full of people singing out to His glory and the great things that He has done! Let us give Him thanks for eyes to see our need for Him and for each other! While each of us are a holy temple of Christ living in us upon faith in Him as our Savior, none of us are the body of Christ as His whole church unto ourselves!
Hee, Hee, Hee!!! I’m a gal sooo thankful that He has not left us alone to figure out how to do life by ourselves! It sets the fact in concrete that we need to be in relationship with our all powerful, all wise, all loving Father and each other, just as He intended when He said in the Garden of Eden – it is not good for man to be alone!!!!!!! That would be true for all of us!!!!!!!
Much love to you all and I am sooo thankful for our Father and for each one of you!!!!!!! Let’s have a divine day in need of our Father!!! That’s a good thing! 🙂 Praying with ya’s!!!!!!!
