Our next devotion will be based upon 1 Peter 5:10b…. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle [you].
Let’s continue looking at the phrase “God of all grace” as we look at our text for this morning. Our Lord is truly “the God of ALL grace”. Stop and think about it, God’s grace affects every aspect of our lives. He is truly a God that is gracious in every possible way. There are so many areas that we take for granted that are clear displays of His grace to us…
Every time we get in a car and arrive at our destination safely is an act of His grace.
Whenever we read a verse of Scripture that speaks to our heart it is His grace.
When we wake up each morning with the physical ability to get up and be about our business it is His gracious intervention in our lives.
Anytime we can stop and be encouraged knowing a wonderful eternity with Him awaits us it is His grace at work.
When we are able to support ourselves by having a place of employment we are graced by Him.
Our food we eat and the clothes we wear are ours because He has shown us His grace.
If we are able to reading this posting, His grace is at work.
Lest we believe that these things are “no big deal” please keep in mind there are many that are unable to do these things. We are truly blessed of God.
It is this same gracious God that has given us the promises we find in our devotional text. He will be with us during times of opposition brought upon us by Satan. As we remember His graces to us that are displayed on a daily basis, let us use them as an encouragement to continue to serve Him in the midst of opposition. His grace is with us…
Heb 4:14-16 (KJV)
14) Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast [our] profession.
15) For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.
16) Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
May the Lord bless us as we “Think On These Things”.
