The throne of grace 

The more l study on grace the more amazed l am at how much we are loved by God.  He has actually got us covered, there is no area of our lives that he is not able to help us with. In our weakness, insufficient, inabilities he grants us his amazing Grace. 

So that when we are unable we know God is able, when we are weak we know God is strong, when it’s at the end for us that is when He starts, all we have to do is to ask Him for His grace, which is always sufficient for us. How amazing is that!

Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace [that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing] grace to help in time of need [an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment].”‭‭HEBREWS‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Yet grace [God’s undeserved favor] was given to each one of us [not indiscriminately, but in different ways] in proportion to the measure of Christ’s [rich and abundant] gift.”  ‭‭EPHESIANS‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by eating ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to those who do so. Hebrews 13:9

“For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God;”EPHESIANS‬ ‭2:8‬ ‭AMP‬‬

But He gives us more and more grace [through the power of the Holy Spirit to defy sin and live an obedient life that reflects both our faith and our gratitude for our salvation]. Therefore, it says, “GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD and HAUGHTY, BUT [continually] GIVES [the gift of] GRACE TO THE HUMBLE [who turn away from self-righteousness].”‭‭JAMES‬ ‭4:6‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Grace and peace [that special sense of spiritual well-being] be multiplied to you in the [true, intimate] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.” ‭‭2 PETER‬ ‭1:2‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Whatever area you are serving God in, you are able to do it to perfection by his grace. God’s grace not only gave us salvation through Jesus Christ, it also gave us an enabling. It actually takes the pressure off us, all we have to do is avail ourselves and let God help us.

It is therefore important the prayer 🙏 we pray more often is a prayer for grace . That God’s grace may abound towards us. 

Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.


There is so much on grace l still need to learn.

I hope you are encouraged 

May God’s grace be sufficient for you 

Love 

Shalom..

What do you have that you   did not receive? (1Corinthians 4:7 )

For it is by grace we have been saved through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.     Ephesians 2:8-9

For who makes you different from anyone else? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not?                             1 Corinthians 4:7

Matthew 7:1-3 Amplified version 

Do not judge and criticize and condemn [others unfairly with an attitude of self-righteous superiority as though assuming the office of a judge], so that you will not be judged [unfairly].

 For just as you [hypocritically] judge others [when you are sinful and unrepentant], so will you be judged; and in accordance with your standard of measure [used to pass out judgment], judgment will be measured to you. 

Why do you look at the [insignificant] speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice and acknowledge the [egregious] log that is in your own eye?

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”      Luke 8:38

 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.   Matthew 6:14

I must be honest, l was totally wrecked by these verses… The bible is so clear, l realised l have so far to go, so much to learn and so much unlearning of ways that are not God’s. At times religion takes you to the law but it is by grace that l am saved. It’s nothing l did, but Grace… Oh how I’m so grateful that God had mercy on me.

This is an encouragement to us all to remember to look at each other with grace as we work out our salvation .

🙏Father teach me to be gracious, for you have be so gracious to me. To forgive, to love even as you have done for me..

Much love

Shalom
