I checked the meaning of Grace in the dictionary and found many interesting definitions but I’d be sharing my two favorite ones.
The first states- (not countable) Free and undeserved favour, especially of God. Unmerited divine assistance given to humans for their regeneration or sanctification.
The second states- (not countable) Divine assistance in resisting sin.
So imagine free and undeserved favour! Where even people who don’t like you don’t know why they’re helping you. This might sound silly but it exists and it’s simply called GRACE! With grace, you just simply know that it’s not about anything that you’ve done or your human effort but a much greater force driving and helping you. I pray that you take with you grace for the week and when people ask how you do it, don’t forget to send them back to God. Because it’s not you who does it but God does it through you.
And the other that says grace can also be divine assistance in resisting sin. Funny thing is I didn’t really see it in this dimension. So grace can also help in keeping away from sin! Awesome! Which means that again it’s not by Human effort that we resist or overcome sin, but by grace! I remember sometime last week when a classmate asked me if I had my note with me because he hadn’t copied the last note, instead of lying sharp sharp that I didn’t bring it because I was afraid I’d probably never see the note again if I gave him; I just simply prayed a short prayer that God should somehow make a way where I didn’t have to lie. And interestingly, though the guy sat close to me through the next class; he never once asked again if I had my note. I was just amazed. So if you ever need to run from a situation, you say just this very short prayer “Your grace Lord! Your grace!” And see something awesome happen.
The word for today was gotten from 2 Corinthians 12:9- “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.”
Darling, His grace is sufficient for you!
