I think in part one of the hardest things for me to rely on is the grace of God. I understand it (in a limited way?) as a means for which I can experience forgiveness, but do I access the grace of God to sustain my life in a dry and arid land? Can I truly believe and act within the reality that the grace of God is so outrageous that it is available to all and is an inexhaustible source? “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness (Jesus as recorded by Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:9).”
“You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 2:1).” Like many things in the experience of the follower of Jesus Christ, his grace is a spiritual function. It is requesting something that we cannot create ourselves but is available if we ask, if we make our souls, minds, hearts and strength available to the reach of his grace. Forgiveness yes! But so much more, grace for the day that is before us, each and every day that is before us.
