Grace to be Me
For many years I simply could not accept myself. I felt inferior and unacceptable to God. One day I sat aside my pride, called upon the name of the Lord, and He answered me. I no longer saw Him as a demanding God but a loving Father who accepted me with all my imperfections, and it was all by His grace. God’s grace cannot be earned; it can only be received; it is a free commodity in God’s economy. The dictionary defines grace as unmerited love and favor of God; divine influence acting in the person to make the person pure and morally strong. As you grow in grace God brings you to completeness of personality. He is working mightily in you!
Father, I thank You for salvation. By grace I have been saved through faith…it is the gift of God. Sin shall no longer be my master, because I am under grace. Your grace is sufficient for me—for every situation that I face today—for Your strength is made perfect in weakness. From the fullness of Your grace we have all received one blessing after another in the name of Jesus. Amen.
