POWER AND GRACE
Godís power and grace keep us from getting what we truly deserve. Because of His power He is able to allow His grace to bless us. His blessings give us power to help others through grace. Without God, there is no grace. Without God, there is no hope. Without God, there is nothing. Because of Godís grace and power working through us, we can be examples to those who are living now and to those in the future when we obey Him and fulfill the purpose He has for us. His power and grace can do all thatÖand more.
Ephesians 2:7 ďSo God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.Ē (NLT)
Dear Lord, we thank You for Your power and grace. We are nothing without You. However, we act as if You arenít there sometimes. We ignore You. We stay focused on us and the world. Help us today, Lord, to see Your power and grace. Help us today, Lord, to recognize Your blessings for us. Help us today, Lord, to help others with the blessings You give us and through the power and grace You bestow upon us. In Jesusí name. Amen.
We should be grateful for the power of God who is able to do mighty things when we ask.
We should be grateful for the grace of God who does for us when we donít deserve it.
We should be grateful for the blessings of God who gives us things and opportunities to share them with others.
We should be grateful for the hope of God who gives us peace in the midst of storms.
We should be grateful for the love of God who loves us so much that He does give us power, grace, blessings and hope.
2 Corinthians 13:14 ďMay the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.Ē (NLT)
