God is Lord of the miraculous – not because we do enough or somehow earn it, but rather He grants favor where faith is found. Does God give you His Spirit and work miracles among you because you observe the law, or because you believe what you heard? – (Galatians 3:5) Our faith in Christ is what empowers us to live for God. As we allow Him reign in us, He works through us, to help us do that which need be done. It is not by works; it is through faith we are saved. May we lay hold of what we have heard by His Spirit, and believe by faith, so that He may accomplish through us, all that needs to be done.

 

Though the law is good,Holding What is Heard

to show us the ways;

where we’ve fallen short,

throughout all our days.

It is by our faith,

that God opts to move;

He works miracles,

among we who choose.

May we each lay hold,

of what we have heard;

and by faith, embrace,

the Lord’s Holy Word.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your Spirit in us is not dependant on our ability to do enough or be good enough, but rather it is a matter of whether or not we choose to believe and trust in You. Thank You Jesus, that You are worthy of all of our trust. Thank You that You empower us to live for You, no matter what is going on around us. Forgive us for thinking that we need to somehow follow a set of rules and regulations to be “good enough” in Your sight, and help us to hear clearly the truth of Your grace found in faith. Teach us to trust You more, so that we may operate in confidence, knowing that You are both with us and for us, always. Lead us to love others, just as You so perfectly love each of us. May many come into a saving relationship with You, Lord. Be exalted O God, as we faithfully follow You.

But because of His great love for us, God, Who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ. – Ephesians 2:4-5
