Grace Is More Of A Lifestyle Than A Promise

Grace Is More Of A Lifestyle Than A Promise

Exodus 3:7-14 & 1 Peter 5:10

“Now the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will personally restore, establish, strengthen, and support you after you have suffered a little”-1 PETER 5:10.

The nation of Israel did not know that their suffering was an open invitation to God. He wanted a relationship as the basis for Him to powerfully intervene in their situation. In another vein, Moses found himself in the wilderness, God called him aside and initiated a relationship with him not just based on the Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob covenant but also built on a personal relationship in the now.

Exodus 3:14 -God said to Moses, “I am who I am”. This is what you are to say to the Israelite: “I am has sent me to you”.
Have you been suffering? God has been invited by it. However, He cannot intervene effectively nor can you see Him at work unless you have a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. Christ died, was buried, and rose again to give everyone who repents and accepts Him as Lord and Savior that relationship they need for God’s intervention and revelation. Until you are born again- the Grace season is still a promise but in Christ, you will always have a year of grace. Months change, days change and numbers on the calendar or watch change but the declaration of the acceptable graceful year of the Lord remains eternal for all who have accepted God’s offer of Jesus Christ. And if you are born again and suffering, God is there with you for He will not leave you nor forsake you.

Sometimes we try to make sense of how things will change, but it is not a matter of sense but of God’s enabling grace. So will you take some moments to just officially welcome God into your situation? We need the Grace of God to navigate this challenging time, but this grace must not just be claimed as a promise, we must cultivate it as a culture and a Lifestyle. For the scriptures says; “let us acknowledge him”. Let us seek to acknowledge the LORD always regardless of our condition. He will come to our rescue as certainly as the appearance of the dawn, as certainly as the winter rain comes, as certainly as the spring rain that waters the land”- Hosea 6:3.
Welcome Him today!
