2 Corinthians 9:8, Romans 5:17: And God is able to make all grace abound
toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to
every good work: *For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more
they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign
in life by one, Jesus Christ
You are responsible for the amount of God’s grace that you are experiencing in your life. God’s grace is always sufficient and God is even more willing to overshadow you with His grace than you believe. However, it is our responsibility to receive abundance of grace, Rom.5:17, and to be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus, 2Tim.2:1. It our responsibility to let our hearts be established in grace, Heb.13:9. The question is this: are
you willing to engage in the things that cause you to access and become
more conscious of God’s abundant grace?
Faith gives us access to God’s grace, Rom.5:2. Our faith must be in Christ
and we must keep hearing God’s Word, especially the revelation of the
love of God and the things God has done for us in Christ, Col.3:16. We also
receive more of God’s grace in His presence, Heb.4:16. Decide that you
will consistently dwell in God’s presence and make it your secret place.
God also gives grace to the humble, James 4:6. Pride is a grace killer in
your dealings with men and in your relationship with God. On the
contrary, praying and depending on God is a mark of genuine humility.
Being willing to love, serve and respect others is also a mark of humility.
Keep putting the grace of God to work in your life. Faith without works is
dead. The sign that you believe you have received God’s grace is the way
you put that grace to work. If Apostle Paul failed to work, the grace of God
that He had received would have been in vain, 1Cor.15:10.
Prayer Focus: Pray that God should help you to receive abundant grace where you need it most right now.
