Grace Like Rain

  • For even as we have many members in one body, and all the members don't have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another, having gifts differing according to the grace that was given to us: if prophecy, let's prophesy according to the proportion of our faith; or service, let's give ourselves to service; or he who teaches, to his teaching; or he who exhorts, to his exhorting; he who gives, let him do it with generosity Romans 12:4 WEB

    As we drove to the client's office, I was dreading what lay ahead. I just felt that the job that we were setting out to do was going to take all day because it involved a network of machines that I knew to be temperamental, and they tended to work when they wanted.

    Normally it would have, but not this day. Within thirty minutes, I had fixed the computers and we were on the way home. The mountain of work had all seemed very easy, almost too easy'almost like they fixed themselves.

    The grace of God was on me. Grace is the unmerited (unearned, undeserved) favor of God. It is like oil in an engine. Grace makes things go smoothly without friction. When the Lord told Paul: 'My grace is sufficient for thee (2 Corinthians 12:9)', He was not kidding. It truly is. If you have ever had something fast-tracked in your life, this was probably the grace of God. His unearned favor on your life.

    One Sunday night, the Lord spoke to me through the pastor's wife and told me that He wanted me to get my GED. The next Sunday when I came to church, I had it. What took my brother one year, took me one week. It was the grace of God, when you can do no wrong, when you mysteriously know all of the answers, to all of the questions.

    When you have to face that thing that you dread, stop and pray for the Lord to come with you, and He give you the grace to do it. He delights when you invite Him to be a part of your life, and that thing of dread can be fun, simple and easy.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please give me abundant grace to tackle the things that I have been putting off. Help me complete the things that I have dreaded doing and make it fun, simple, and easy. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Happy Monday! The highlighted group of the week is Spiritually Single: this group is focused on supporting those who are married to, or have loved ones, who are "pre-believers" and have to deal with the special challenges involved. If this is you, and you would like benefit from resources, encouragement and prayer in this area, we invite you to join! ALSO, the Creation Photographers fun theme, "Let Your Love Light " based on Matthew 5:16! As always, you are free to post anything else that inspires you, too! FINALLY, for those following along with our RHM Bible Study, the newest installment is available, covering Luke Chapter Five. For links to all of these areas and more, please see the Announcements at the top of our home page here: Announcements}

His grace has been poured out on me this year. I stand amazed. And as stated above, we know we don't deserve it but He sheds it on us anyways.
