Today is Your Best Day Because of Grace (Part 3)
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8 KJV
Grace abounds to you today with so many favors, blessings, and joys.
Without His grace we were songbirds without a song; by His grace we have been given a new song to sing and a melody of praise for our hearts to rejoice in.
Without His grace we were trees bearing bitter fruit; by His grace we bear sweet fruit, lush fruit, and fruit that remains.
Without His grace our heads hung low and turned away from the light of His love; by His grace our heads have been lifted up and our hearts have been flooded with His glorious light.
Without His grace we were defenseless against the attacks of the enemy; by His grace we stand against the enemy triumphantly—completely equipped with the full armor of God, the blood of Jesus, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the ministry of the heavenly host.
Without His grace we lived in confusion, were lost, and had no clear direction; by His grace we have been found, and His wisdom guides our lives as He makes straight paths for our feet.
Without His grace our words had no message, and we gave our opinion only to have it drowned out by the opinions of others; by His grace He has put His sure and certain words in our mouths. We can now speak the truth in love and know that the Word of God abides forever.
Without His grace we were blind, stumbling about in the darkness, trying to find our purpose and make a way for ourselves in the world; by His grace our eyes have been opened, our purpose has been made known, our hearts are set on eternity, and we daily walk in the good things that He has prepared for us.
Without His grace we were fearful, motivated by self-interests, and striving to succeed; by His grace we have entered into His rest, we walk in His peace, and we daily live for His glory.
Without His grace we were without hope, without the assurance of heaven, and bound by the fear of death; by His grace we abound in hope, we rejoice in the certainty of the resurrection, and we glory in knowing that the very best is still ahead.
