Today I learned a little more about Grace. Amazing Grace.
I’m not sure if I am the only one out there that does this, and I didn’t really realize I was doing it until yesterday, and then today it was put together.
The question presented in my devotional was:
“When, if ever, have you experienced for yourself the simple and soul-satisfying truth that God is enough? Why don’t we believers experience that more regularly?”
My answer, which after reading really didn’t completely answer the question was:
“Shamefully, I forget. Doubt comes in because I know I have not done what I should do, or be. Then I don’t think I should even ask for help, guidance, counsel . . . because I have no right to.”
THEN, in the middle of writing that statement, as if the Lord was speaking directly to me, He asked:
“So does that mean you have a right to ask “IF” you do good enough, or do everything right?”
My obvious answer, “No,” as that would take away from grace. So why do I allow myself to fall into the lies from satan?
All I know is the Bible tells me my righteousness is like filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6) so I can do nothing to stay in His good graces. He also keeps telling me “I am faithful when you are faithless,” II Timothy 2:13.
So, today, I begin walking in the Grace and forgiveness He so graciously died for . . .the simple and soul-satisfying truth that God is enough.
