Abundant Grace

Have you ever walked into something, not knowing how you will get through it, only to look back, and see that His grace was clearly present, as Christ poured out His love in a tangible way?

 

The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. – (I Timothy 1:14)

 

Though we may feel inadequate on our own, we can be confident that Christ in us, will grow our faith and deepen our love, as we are intentional to invest in our relationship with Him. He provides what we lack. We need not worry whether or not we are enough to take on that which He calls us to. On our own, we are not. Yet as we ask, He will provide that which is needed to rise up in strength and He will remain beside us as we walk forward in faith. All we are that is worthwhile, is because of His work in us. Let us press on, as He has poured out all that we need, to faithfully do as He asks of us.

 

May we walk forward,Abundant Grace

confident in grace;

He will not call us,

to half run our race.

All that is needed,

our God will provide;

He’s setting our pace,

He’ll mark out our stride.

At times it may seem,

more than we can do;

we are called to trust,

let Christ see us through.

He asks us to move,

the strength He provides;

faith grows with footsteps,

as we choose abide.

So rise up and run,

wherever He asks;

His grace is with us,

to conquer His tasks.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You pour out Your abundant grace, faith and love upon us, as we seek You. Thank You that You do not call us to anything that You are not also willing to equip us to walk through. Thank You that Your grace is enough. Forgive us for our feelings of inadequacy, and our fears of failure. Help us to hold onto the reality that our confidence is in You, and that You provide all that is needed, when it is needed. Thank You that You never leave us nor forsake us. May we be bold in the faith and love that we’ve found in You, and may many come to know You, personally, as a result. Be exalted, O God, as we run the race marked out before us with confidence in You. Amen.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; …write them on the tablet of your heart. – Proverbs 3:3
