A Special Gift From Your Heavenly Father
Do you know that there is a special gift that comes from God your heavenly Father towards you everyday? Yes there is. It is the gift of grace and peace. Paul an apostle of God was known to start his messages (or letters) to God's people with grace and peace, because he knew that God wants us to have abundance of grace and peace everyday.
Grace be to you, and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 1:2.)
Grace and Peace is a special gift coming from your heavenly Father and your Lord Jesus to you today. Just in case you are wondering; What’s in God’s heart about me right now? What does God have for me today? Is it judgement or punishment for my wrongs? Or maybe He totally dislikes me because I have not been completely faithful.
Well, my beloved friend, I have good news for you today. The good news is that God sees you as His own child. He sees you as someone that He wants to give more grace and peace. He knows your weaknesses and as a loving Father, He has come to help you (Psalm 103:13). He says to you;
“My dear child, My grace is sufficient for you and My strength is made perfect in your weaknesses” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
Never for a moment have any doubt about God’s kindness towards you when it comes to lavishing you with grace and peace. I can boldly tell you that what God has for you today is grace, more grace, extra grace, and super abounding peace.
God knows you need His grace and peace today more than ever before. He is not looking for a way to punish you. No! Our ignorance, unbelief and mistakes already have enough consequences of pain and loss. Our common enemy, Satan, is busy day and night looking for ways to kill us, steal from us and totally destroy us. And this enemy Satan, gains access to harm us through our ignorance, mistakes, sins and weaknesses. Ecclesiastes 10:8 says that: “whoever breaks a hedge, the serpent shall bite him”. Meaning that when we break God’s guiding principles or laws, we give the serpent (Satan) access to our lives to harm us. Never the less, God has made so much grace available to us, to set us free from Satan’s baits, and to give us power to live the God kind of life.
Satan always wants your sin to be a hindrance between you and God. He is trying to take away that peace that you ought to have with God. But the bible says that: “For this cause was the Son of God manifested that He might destroy the works of the evil one” (1 John 3:8). Jesus Christ our King is just super awesome. He came to earth and made a way for us to continually live in peace with God, and beyond having peace with God, He has also given us authority by grace, to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the authority of the enemy. Now, we can live free and at peace with God, and also live by the empowerment of grace where sin have no dominion over us.
Because of God’s grace and peace given to you in Christ, now you can boldly proclaim these words:
- God has a good heart towards me, and He empowers me with all of His grace. - By grace, I am forgiven from every past mistake, I am free, I am righteous in Christ, and I am at peace with God. - By the grace of God given to me in Christ, I can become all that God has created me to be; walking in the character and ability of God, living above sin,sickness and all the works of Satan. - By grace, I am a champion, I am a victor, and I excel in all I do. Praise God!
Beloved, now that you are aware that God’s special gift towards you everyday is grace and peace, I would like encourage you to take advantage of this special gift and use it. You know that God's grace empowers you to live a higher life, a life that transcends sin and death. God's peace gives you rest in the midst of the storms in this world, so receive His peace everyday. Position your heart in way it can receive a constant flow of God’s peace and grace everyday. Because by this grace, I see you walking in newness of life, in prosperity, in joy, in peace, in health, in success and in victory. You are blessed my friend, and I wish you a great life. Cheers!
