Bible Promise for Today: God’s Grace

God's grace God's power in weakness

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9, NIV)

Bible Promise: God’s Grace

Do you ever feel like you’ve hit an immovable wall? Like change will never come?

Just when we think we’ve had enough, God appears on the scene–but not with condemnation, silence, or sarcasm. Instead, He’s there holding out strong arms to encourage us. God’s grace covers every limitation.

God’s Grace Is Enough

God’s grace is more than enough for all our weaknesses. If we think we’re strong enough without Him, His grace is useless to us. He already knows our faults. But it was His grace that made us His child in the beginning. And it will be God’s grace that will always lead us back home to Him.

God’s Grace Frees

Remember duty demands. God’s grace frees.

My Prayer for You

Lord, Your grace is more than enough for every weakness and every need of our lives. Forgive us for taking the reins and trying to do things in our own strength. You didn’t design us for failure. Help us to live in the freedom and joy of your grace. As Your children, why would we keep trying to right the wrongs of our lives when You already paid for them on the cross? Thank You for the promise of grace You gave us in the Bible. You put the “want-to” back in our hearts again. We “want-to” be like Jesus!

    I would dearly love to have the Guideposts Devotional as I am currently battling Cancer and I have a bone tumor. My doctors are unsaved and are not willing to hear me when I tell them that I need my proper medical care now not in a month. But even in this I know that God has a good plan for me but…

    I truly need encouragement as over the past year I have tried to reach out to numerous groups who are supposedly into encouraging others only to be ignored and noone ever comes to visit me and my developmentally disabled husband who has severe social anxiety. My husband cannot be the things I need so desperately at the moment but I do not blame him.

    I do realize that God is with me, but it would be nice to have some comfort in the human realm as well. I need a tangible form of love and caring not just words that no action is ever put to.

    My family has disowned me.

    This may sound like a “pity me” story, but all I am asking for is for someone to stand in the gap for me and to be a willing servant of God.

    God has been guiding me this year to his grace and mercy.
    I would love to be a recipient of this but for the purpose of continuing my walk and also his love for me, And trust me this has been one very difficult last few days. God Bless

    Rebecca, thank you for your beautiful message today. As I repeated your prayer, I felt the freedom of God’s grace in my heart. Thank you for putting into words my heart’s desire…to love God with all my heart and soul and strength and to accept His gift to me of His grace through His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ! I am hoping to purchase the devotional so I will be able to start reading the first devotion on January 1st, of course. The devotion you shared about the “Two Companions” was inspirational!

    Mary, thank you for your encouraging comments today. I’m grateful the blog and devotion ministered to you. While your name wasn’t drawn for the Mornings with Jesus 2014, I hope you’ll keep watching for others. (one going on now).
