MFM Daily Devotional June 22, 2022, MESSAGE
Grace is a divine support provided by heaven to achieve what human effort cannot. Grace is the supernatural energy to operate beyond normal when compared with others. It is when what you do not deserve is given to you effortlessly.
In our Fire Scripture for today, we can see that Noah was not the only man on earth then, but he received grace from God. The grace of God will bring you favour in the presence of men. When you are operating under the grace of God, even your worst mistakes will be converted to testimony. As a mortal man, there is always a level where our strength could be inadequate; then grace is needed.
Grace is released into us when we put all our hope in God. When you get to the level where you realise that your effort is exhausted, then you quickly turn to God and ask for His grace. Grace is the love of God given to the unloving person. Grace is the peace of God released to the trouble-hearted.
It is the unmerited favour of God. It is reaping where you did not sow. It is getting good things you do not deserve. It is also not getting what you deserve. When you deserve judgement and grace speaks for you, then you are pardoned.
By grace, we get numerous benefits. It is by grace that we received pardon for our sins (Isaiah 43: 25). We live and are sustained in this wicked world by the grace of God. The talents and gifts we are enjoying are given by grace. That we are useful to God is just by His grace.
The fact that you are still in faith since you were converted is by the grace of God. That is why it is important that we grow in grace. God’s work of making us more like Jesus happens not because we have earned it or by our own effort, but by the grace of God (2 Peter 3:18).
Grace is one of the beautiful gifts that God offers to people who have done absolutely nothing to deserve it. It is indispensable in every believer’s journey in life. Therefore, ask for it and do not abuse it.
