Grace is POWER!

This morning the Lord gave me deeper insight into the word “grace” and I am excited to share this with you. In the Bible, grace does not just refer to undeserved kindness and favor. Grace is also the strength God gives us to obey His commands. It is NOT JUST a kindly attitude but an IMPARTATION OF POWER that is given to us unmerited and free. When we know God in a deeper way, He gives us His grace (=undeserved power) to leap over every obstacle on our way to become everything He has called us to be! 2 Corinthians 12:9 says, “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My POWER is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s POWER may rest on me.” I don’t know what you are struggling with today that hinders you from walking deeper with God. But I pray you will allow the Holy Spirit to search the deeper recesses of your hearts and ask God to flood His grace into those areas that need His touch. His grace is more than enough! I encourage you to listen to the song “Broken Things by Mathew West”. Here are the lyrics of the song:

“Broken Things”

If grace was a kingdom
I stopped at the gate
Thinking I don’t deserve to pass through after all the mistakes that I’ve made

Oh but I heard a whisper
As Heaven bent down
Said, “Child, don’t you know that the first will be last and the last get a crown”

Now I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King
I wish I could bring so much more
But if it’s true You use broken things
Then here I am Lord, I’m all Yours

The pages of history they tell me it’s true
That it’s never the perfect; it’s always the ones with the scars that You use

It’s the rebels and the prodigals; it’s the humble and the weak
All the misfit heroes You chose
Tell me there’s hope for sinners like me

Now I’m just a beggar in the presence of a King
I wish I could bring so much more
But if it’s true You use broken things
Then here I am Lord, I’m all Yours

Grace is a kingdom
With gates open wide
There’s a seat at the table just waiting for you
So, come on inside
