Oh, glorious day, beloved family!!! How awesome it is that we have been given the grace to enjoy life together today!!! Not only do we have the gift of grace upon us in having each other, but to have all of our Father’s sustaining grace moment by moment in life. Every keyboard key my finger pushes to write this is a moment by moment miracle!!! Consider all that has to happen in my body to make that happen – the brain has to think what to write and how to move, all the nerves have to hear from the brain to make my fingers work, my heart has to keep beating to pump the blood through my body, my eyes need to see to know where my keyboard is, along with the keys to push and to see the screen to see if the letters and input is accurate. I could go on and on and on about the many miracles that are happening with just me, but then there is you, too and the same is true with the magnitude of miracles happening in you and through you today as well!!! Through grace, the Spirit of Christ Jesus lives in us empowering each of us supernaturally to be effective in carrying out His will, His plan and His purpose for each of us, too!!! As the Apostle Paul says:
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Everything that we do is by the grace of God saving us, not only saving us from our sins and the wages of sin, but in saving us moment by moment to be able to do life. Hence, when people wonder if they can earn heaven or do life on their own, the answer is a very obvious no way, Jose!!! We are all at the helpless mercy of the One who created us and who enables us to will and act according to His good purposes for us in life. Now how amazing is He who IS love, all wise and all powerful. How awesome that He desires us to love Him and live forever with Him in His paradise Kingdom that is coming soon!!! Until then, we have the power of His Kingdom right here with each one of us moment by moment to give us each the gift of living life here together and to have the grace to overcome the temporary challenges of life in the midst of the spiritual battle that is being fought in the spiritual realm all around us!!! Our Father’s grace has us covered with victory there, too!!! All we need to do is cling to Him in faith!!! Now how blessed are we as our Father’s kids – royal children of the King forever safe and sustained by loving grace!!! I love this song here about how our Father’s grace always finds us!!! SOOO TRUE!!!
Enjoy the gift of life today and know you are loved and cherished and cared for by the best – our Maker and Sustainer!!!
These are His plans for us:
“For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Oh these thoughts just makes me smile by the grace of Jesus!!! 🙂
