Greetings Women of God!
This morning I was reminded I was thinking about the ways that many strive.
You are striving to make your business and ministry work by using every technique the so called experts are pushing out of their mouths and you are tired and worn from it all.
I like to ask, “How is that working for ya?” I can almost guarantee that it is not working well. You need to be reminded and encouraged today that you cannot do enough to earn the grace of our God. When will accept that we have always been unworthy of God’s goodness but that He liberally favors and blesses us out of His compassion upon us. I like the verse in Exodus 33:19,
Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.”--
This woman of God is absolutely wonderful because His grace is unconditional. It has nothing to do with what you do and it should totally bring us to a place of humility. Do you know what we receive when we humble ourselves before God? It’s grace…
James 4:6 -- But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.”
Precious Daughter of God you will not have your way and you will not get any glory to say that you have done anything to receive one blessing from God. You will not take the credit for any victory. You will not have prayed enough, did good enough, read your Bible enough, went to best expert and did the best 12 steps you could find. Nope you will not be able to boast in nothing good you did yourself. But you will be able to tell how God was able to cover you in all your weaknesses (2 Cor 12:9); HALLELUJAH! Will that be good enough for you? Your striving must surrender to God’s way and will today.
Only By His Grace
