Authenticity of Grace
A cold morning witnessing the increasing warmth of a rising sun; a drying stream receiving the intensifying drops of a downpour; a dying man holding on to life with a strong will footed within an illuminated heart. There is a Mighty Hand that rules in the affairs of men and a small still voice that continuously instructs at every teachable moment. The glory of the latter days and the years ahead are totally veiled to the reprobate mind, but like a light that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day, the secret things of Graceful Divinity are glaring to the perceptive hearts of those who fear the Lord.
I stood and from afar, I saw an ever Flowing Fountain that is bound not to go dry for all eternity. I drew nigh and drank of the waters thereat. I thought for once my thirst would be quenched and I will have no need to purge myself of weariness again, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. When each passing day life’s propositions and dispositions weighed me down, I became desperate for the Flowing Fountain and I knew I was lost without my found Source of Strength. Over time and as the years went by, I have learnt one thing and two things had kept me on the highways of following peace embodied in holiness, there is a fountain whose streams make glad the choice city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High; and whoever believes in this Cascade of Divinity out of his belly, shall flow rivers of living water.
All the roads I had taken led to my regret, but one broken road led me to True Providence. In my darkest hours of struggling with what seemed like a vicious cycle of sorrow and pain, I learnt a New Song. I have tarried on my knees and waited in reverence, obeisance and obedience without getting answers to the mind-boggling questions in my heart; in all, I have grown to see the beautiful undulating pictures of a promised future through the eyes of faith. I have had disappointed promised commitments in the best of friendships and relationships; I have witnessed colossal failures from prospective opportunities and many a time, my outstretched hand of camaraderie had been made to retreat owing to reservations not utterly clear to me; but through it all, I’ve understood what it takes to love unconditionally. I became wholly equipped to accept people for what and who they are…today, I am what I am by the grace of the Lord and His grace to me was not without effect.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
