More wisdom from an ODG

“A state of mind that sees God in everything is evidence of growth in grace and a thankful heart.” Charles Finney
This kinda of rings of my comments yesterday, God is everywhere, every sight we see every sound we here is testimony of the Grace and Glory of God. God is not hiding from us he is everywhere we just need to acknowledge Him and be thankful for all he has done. There has been many books written about the attributes of God his love, kindness, holiness, His supremacy, His foreknowledge and many others. The two that always have intrigued me is His patience and His Grace. Grace is what I want to talk about today.
Grace is a concept that to most human thinking goes against logic. We as humans are not naturally filled with Grace. You get something because you either earned it or deserved it. It’s not normally in our nature just to give or forgive without a good reason. Don’t get me wrong there are many people who are very gifted in the ability to show Grace but the ones who are truly filled with Grace are also filled with something else “the Holy Spirit”.
Grace has been defined as “God’s unmerited favor” we do not deserve anything from God yet his Grace has given us everything. Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was driven by God’s Grace. He new are only hope was in Christ, we needed Christ and deserved death, and yet God’s love and Grace provided salvation.
We do have the ability to be a grace giving people but only by acknowledging the Grace given to us. That state of mind that sees God in everything, every situation, every person (even the annoying ones) will allow you to grow in your ability to show Grace to others. Just remember if you expect anything in return it’s not Grace.
Learn to be Grace filled, so much of who we are as children of God depends on it, love, patience, forgiveness, kindness and so much more. God’s Grace is everywhere and available to anyone. Make sure you are sharing the Grace that was freely given to you!
GOD is GOOD!!!!
