Colossians 1:6 “This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the first day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.”
Take a moment and think about your life. From the time you heard about how much God loves you, how He wants to care for you and show you His goodness and mercy, about the hope He offers, has your life changed since then? Has the burden of life been lifted or at least, gotten lighter? Have your relationships improved? Do you see that your life now has purpose? If so, that’s the grace of God that already began its work in you!
Remember, God’s grace doesn’t exempt you from trials and challenges. What it does is gives you the hope of victory. It gives you the strength to overcome. It lets you know that you’re not facing them alone. It frees you from bondages. Joy and peace come to you. Those are awesome blessings!
And for as long as you are alive, He will continue to change your life; and one day you will look back and marvel on how far you have gone. You may not even recognize yourself because you’ve changed so much for the better! That is God’s grace. And it’s available for you!
“Abba, I am filled with hope knowing that You are changing me, not leaving me the way I am. Thank You for choosing me to be a part of Your family. Thank You for Your grace that is at work in my life. Thank You for Your love that never lets me go. All because of Jesus, my Savior, my Lord. Amen!”
