Due to the fact that we are going through a trying time and that our hearts as parents are broken I could not submit this article on time for the Writers Challenge. But I have decided to post it in any case on the Internet as I am a Child of God and NOTHING will change that, do you hear me devil, no troubles or tribulations or anything that you sent on my way will move me, I trust in God for in Him I move and live and breathe. God is my strength and my power and I am strong in Him, He loves me enough to care about me and my children and my husband. They are protected in Him and I claim Ps 91 over them.
In Gods Grace! What a way to live our lives. Grace is unmerited favor; we have the favor of God the Father through Jesus Christ. Father God is our source of grace; where else can we find so much love and forgiveness? We as human beings are in need of unlimited grace in our daily lives as we are sinners. No one of us are perfect, only Jesus Christ is perfect and without sin.
Father God showed His grace to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, although they sinned, He did not forget about them. From Genesis to Revelations we can read and learn about Gods grace and love for us in every chapter and verse. If we look at our daily lives we can testify of His grace and love for us. In His grace and love we live, move and breathe. We ask God for His grace upon our lives everyday but do we really understand the true meaning of the word grace? Grace equals favor, favor equals love, and love equals forgiveness. We have the favor of Father but we donít deserve it, we canít earn it, we canít buy it, we simply have it because Father loves us.
When we repent and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior we receive Godís grace. Thereafter we have the privilege to tap into this grace as and when we need it. Through grace we can now truly say I forgive you, I love you, I am truly happy. When we sin (as we as humans do) we can rest assured that Godís grace is unlimited. He forgives us all our sins. Herewith I do not say that we a ďlicenseĒ to sin, no, it simply means that we knows His grace is enough to forgive us all our sins.
In grace, out of reach, whose reach, the destroyers. How can I make such a statement? Think about it? When we live our daily lives and we are dressed with the armor of God, the destroyer can not attack us, we are prepared, protected and shielded with Gods love and grace.
Out of harms way because greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world. Don Francisco wrote and sang a song about the devil came knocking on the door with a package marked from God, he then sent the devil back where he came from with the package because a package from God to us will be filled with blessings and not cursing. While I am writing this I am thinking to myself; practice what you preach, ouch. We tend to forget that we have grace when lives problems knock on the door and in the heat of the moment we are shattered and depressed. Shame on me! In the heat of trouble I chose to react and fight with my love ones and with people and the situation instead of remembering and trusting in Gods grace and leaving the problem in His hands instead of taking it back and trying to solve it by throwing tantrums.
I am human and I am Daddyís baby! I have grace, His grace and I chose to live in His grace even if I have to remind myself of His grace every minute. Grace, favor, love, joy, peace all of this is free when we live In Gods grace. How do we live in Gods grace? By trusting and believing in Him. By standing strong and fighting the battle dressed with the full armor of God. Through His grace we can rest assured that He is in control of every situation that troubles my mind.
