God's grace empowers his chosen remnant.
Grace is mysterious. In my life, I have experienced a lot of grace, but I didn't grow up knowing about it. I didn't know that I was saved by God's grace. When I first leared about the amazing gift of grace, I felt empowered. I felt empowered to live a thriving life, full in his freedom. I felt safe. Grace unleashed a fire inside of me that was new and exciting, and it gave me a desire to serve Jesus and tell others of this mysterious gift. The knowledge of grace enabled me to stop trying to be perfect. It gave me a desire to rest in the arms of Jesus and speak his name.
The mysterious part of this is that the more I rest in him, the more I accomplish. The more I rest in him and believe in his grace towards me, I am empowered through his Spirit to move mountains. Mountains that exist inside of myself, and mountains that surround me externally. His grace works through me in an amazing way, I am aware that it is ALL of him, being unleashed in me.
His grace is there for everyone. How are you experiencing it today? How have you been empowered to move in your life because of his grace? What does grace say to you?
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I'm found, was blind but now I see! That is part of the mystery of grace; it brings awareness, life, hope, and an abundance that is unleashed in an unexplainable way!
May his grace be unleashed in your life today!
