Topic: Function In His Abundant Grace [Tuesday July 18, 2017]
“Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 2:1 (KJV)
In-spite of the contrary news about the economy filtering through the news media on a daily basis, I want to encourage you to lean on God’s abundant grace and mercy. Like I have said over and over again, your real strength is that grace will work for you and not the socio-economic postulations and theories of men. If you take a look at what is happening around, you will see that everything is spiraling downwards. And that is because the best of men are still men. No matter how brilliant and sincere they are, they are still men because they are subject to limitations.
Don’t ever be discouraged about the happenings and events around you. Like I have always said and it bears repetition, this is the best time for God to reveal Himself in the lives of His elects. If God was to manifest Himself when everything is working well, people will explain it off. So He waits for a time when men no longer have the answers, to reveal His glory through His people. That is why the Apostle Paul says you should hold fast to the profession of your faith. In other words, hold on to what you have believed and don’t allow circumstances derail you. Things might look tough, just hold on fast. They may look like they would never work, lean on His grace and He will see you through.
I charge you according to the words of God, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. Function in the grace that you have received. Work in that grace. Live in that grace. Allow that grace sustain you. Go to bed and stop the struggle. God is waiting on you to enjoy what He had already made available to you in Christ Jesus. He has it all figured out. Before the challenges you see today came on the scene, God already had the answers. You will not be stranded. God will bless you and cause you to have sufficiency in all things.
