Relying on Grace

By   •   December 6   •   Topics:


Let us face this fact: We came into the world with nothing, and we will leave it with nothing. Where do we get the notion that man’s idea of success and God’s are the same? You have written a book; you are a clever manager and promoter; you are a talented artist; you are independently rich; you have achieved fame and fortune. Without the gifts of intelligence, imagination, personality, and physical energy-which are all endowed by God-where would you be? Are we not born poor? Do we not die poor? And would we not be poor indeed without God’s infinite mercy and love?

We came out of nothing; and if we are anything, it is because God is everything. If He were to withhold His power for one brief instant from us, if He were to hold in check the breath of life for one moment, our physical existence would shrivel into nothingness, and our souls would be whisked away into an endless eternity. Those who are poor in spirit recognize their creatureliness and their sinfulness-but more, they are ready to confess their sins and renounce them.

Prayer for the day

All I have or am, Lord God, has been given to me by Your almighty hands. Forgive me when I tend to boast about my own accomplishments—for I am nothing without Your grace and love.

    Please include me in your prayers, i am suffering in the mist of my alcohol addiction. It is like i get filled with a cruel demon and do things i don’t even remember. But i still see God answering my prayers and blessing me daily. I pray to keep my eyes on Him and not be burdened with that horrible demon, lurking in the background. Please pray for me. I believe you are a mighty ministry and God is with you, please give me the guidance i NEED AT THIS TIME. Amen

    I can do nothing of any worth without God’s Grace . On my own I was a complete failure. Any successes I have in life are a direct result of the unmerited Grace of God and his incredible Blessings. Thank you Lord for your wonderful mercy each day.
