Gathering Strength From Grace


When we are faced with calamity and chose to walk in The Spirit, God's magnificent grace becomes the source of our strength.

By receiving His grace and believing the beloved blood of The Lamb preserves us, we are able to maintain perfect peace while The Lord acts on our behalf.

And if our supremely great, almighty, all-powerful and all-omniscient God is with us, what can possibly prevail against us?

2 Corinthians 12:10
That is why, for the sake of Christ, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

What then shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

May we reflect on the fullest aspect of this truth and express our sincerest gratitude for the gift of pure agape love bestowed upon us by our merciful Creator...a gracious gift that only He is capable of offering in its perfect form because of all that He Is, yesterday, today and tomorrow.

May we reflect on the magnitude of the intricate and infallible plan designed by our Abba Father...His mighty power and omniscience...and that in spite of our transgressions, He lavishes His love on us and calls us His children!

Oh, how He loves us!

But the Lord answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her."
