His Grace Is Sufficient

I know that my Redeemer liveth. I am certain the Messiah of my soul had delivered me. I can be more than a conquerer thru the blood of Jesus Christ. I feel it so necessary to get the message out, in some form. I am not very outgoing and do not feel comfortable in walking up to someone and to tell them about the gospel. I know I should be, and we have been commanded to spread the gospel, so in my own way I will try to do that and hope that somewhere along the way someone who needs to hear it will happen across my blog and find the hope they have been looking for.

Sometimes I think of God's grace as footsteps to follow in, like a child who is following their father around in the snow and trying to put their little foot in daddy's big one and streaching their little legs to match his stride. The big difference here is God never gives us something to hard to bare and to big to take on. When I visualize God's footprints they are placed in such a way so that I can reach each one without difficulty. II Corinthians 12:9a And he said unto me; my grace is sufficient for thee. This is one of the many promises God has given us and he always keeps his promises. I have found this so true, and am thankful that God, who created this universe and every detail, down to the genetic makeup of every human being, would care enough about me and my little footsteps that he makes his footsteps reachable for me.

Did you know that God's grace takes on many forms. Maybe it works for a mother to take a nap when she doesn't even know her little one is going to be up all night due to sickness, that is God's grace at work. An unsaved person walks away from an a car accident and all the rescue workers can do is shake their head because the car is completely demolished and the person should have been killed. God provided his prevenient grace to that person to give them a chance to get their heart right with God. Somebody, without knowing your cupboard is bare, cooks a meal for your family and brings extra grocery's. God's grace at work. But most importantly the grace we all need is his saving grace. Without salvation we all would be lost eternally, this is a gift that God is offering to those who need it. All you have to do is except it and begin your journey to a peace and joy you never thought possible.

I hope this is helpful to someone. I only want what God wants and he gives me these thoughts to share with you. I pray that you are aware of God's grace in your life.
