No matter what you may be going through in life, I want you to know that God's grace is sufficient for you. You may have messed up, you may have failed, you may have gone the wrong direction, you may have gossiped, or much worse, but God wants you to know that it does not define who you are. He does. He and His grace is much more powerful than anything you might have said or done. Grace always shocks. It always amazes, and it always stuns. Grace is what we all need. It's what everyone groping around lost in the darkness needs to know.
Turn towards grace and you turn towards the light of God almighty. Grace is God's unmerited favor. It's God's forgiveness. Grace is God's love. God does not ever treat us as we deserve to be treated. He treats us much better than we deserve to be treated. This says alot about who He is. God gives us grace because of who He is and what He has done. It's not based upon who we are and what we do.
God's grace is not about us. It's all about Him. Who can fathom the mystery of grace? It meets us where we are, but it never leaves us the same. It is life changing, heart changing, and mind blowing. A second with Jesus Christ changes everything including who we are. Grace is another chance that never runs out. Grace is a very important part of who we are. It is the only reason we are able to have the next second which is not promised in life.
Shame is what satan wants us to feel, but feelings do not always line up with the truth. God does not want us to feel shame. Grace is what God wants us to feel and experience. Shame says that because I am flawed, I am unacceptable. Grace says that even though I am flawed, I am cherished. God's grace never fails. It is eternal, and it does not change. It always remains the same. It is constant, it is faithful, and it is indescribable.
This is an invitation from the Holy Spirit to experience and encounter the miracle and the gift of God's grace.
Nothing is by chance in God’s redemptive plan. It was not an accident that Jesus is described in Scripture as the Bridegroom and the Church as His Bride.
