About muchgrace

Hmmm ... I guess the title pretty much says it all! Much Grace 'is' the story of my life :-)

Thursday

This is the time to encourage each other to never be stubborn or hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. For we are mingled with the Messiah, if we will continue unshaken in this confident assurance from the beginning until the end. 

For again, the Scriptures say, If only today you would listen to his voice. Don’t make him angry by hardening your hearts… (Heb 3:13)

Most of us who have brought up strong willed children will remember having to deal with all the histrionics – and associated horrible feelings. My wife and I used to tell them that if they didn’t want the grace we we offering then the law they equally rejected would now kick in. 

Only Love conquers all … ❤️

Wednesday

You keep every promise you’ve ever made to me! 

Since your love for me is constant and endless, I ask you, Lord, to finish every good thing that you’ve begun in me! (Psa 138:8)

By far, the greatest event in my life was when I reached rock bottom and finally cried out to GOD for help. He didn’t just reveal Himself to me, his loving kindness restored my very soul. And it didn’t end there, as I read his word to find out more about him, I started the awesome journey of personal renewal. 

I became aware of his fulfilling promises, not because they were just written down, but I lived through them – I experienced his beautiful loving faithfulness to me. 

Lord Jesus, I pray for everyone who reads this to experience all that you’ve shown me – and MORE!!! ❤️

Tuesday

There are six evils God truly hates and a seventh that is an abomination to him: 

Putting others down while considering yourself superior, spreading lies and rumors, spilling the blood of the innocent, plotting evil in your heart toward another, gloating over doing what’s plainly wrong, spouting lies in false testimony, and stirring up strife between friends. These are entirely despicable to God! (Prov 6:16)

God, I invite your searching gaze into my heart. Examine me through and through; find out everything that may be hidden within me. Put me to the test and sift through all my anxious cares. See if there is any path of pain I’m walking on, and lead me back to your glorious, everlasting ways— the path that brings me back to you. (Psa 139:23) ❤️

Monday

God designed us to feel remorse over sin in order to produce repentance that leads to victory. (2 Cor 7:10)

Many years ago, an archer would take aim at a target and if they missed it would be classed as sin – whether it was by an inch or a mile! 

Sin therefore means to simply ‘miss the mark.’

Whenever we ‘sin’ we miss the mark that our loving Father has set for us, and we can’t whine, sulk or even pout at his choice of mark either – because his Holy Spirit is IN us to help us get there. 

Child of the Living GOD, take aim again in His Strength. ❤️

Sunday

Jesus answered, “Do not yield to your fear… (Luke 5:10)

January 2020 and the story is still far from over. Many among us are fighting sickness – mental and physical. Many are struggling financially and some are in bondage to toxic relationships…

GOD IS FAITHFUL. Whenever His children cry out to be saved, he does respond and sends us a Saviour. 

All he asks is that we trust him. We don’t need to work out a plan for ourselves, or understand the how’s or why’s. Instead, like a drowning man, we just need to quit struggling and be humble enough to follow his leading – his way out. ❤️
