God’s grace is His kindness or goodwill that is directed towards His people. Its essence is for them to be blessed and empowered. The operation of grace happens in specific areas of our lives to empower us to live right by giving us victory over sin and the gravitational pulls of the flesh and of the world.
Grace works to empower us to work or to serve well and with power by being upon us in great measure for us to witness the ressurection of the Lord Jesus and to serve the will of God effectively in our generation; it also helps us to relate well with others as we depend on this power of the endless life that is at work within to live and relate with others without recourse to the influence of the present world which passes away.
The operation of grace is never without purpose. It is not to be treated as untrue as its operations have been apparent throughout the history of God’s dealings with humans. It is not to be received without result as recipients of grace are expected to work out what has been worked within them.
Grace in practical terms also relates with appropriate timings and seasons – 2 Cor 6:2. God is disposed to listen to you at the appropriate time, at the welcomed time that is not primarily and necessarily of man’s choosing. Our God who sees all things and can do all things often prevails on man’s preference by making things to happen in the lives of His people at the most appropriate time. The pleasure of the decision concerning timing is dependent on His prerogative and will always be in the best interest of His people, both corporately and individually.
The grace of God is also disposed to help you in the day of salvation. The day of salvation refers to the season when He rescues from particular dangers to restore to the state of safety and well being either because man has made himself vulnerable unnecessarily or because he is exposed to some particular onslaught of the enemy.
The call on you today is to pay attention to what God is working out in your favour. The favourable time is always in the now even if not for the entire aspects of your life; it is always in the now for those that the time is now appropriate for. The day of salvation, in like manner, is always in the present.
Pay attention now to see the Lord crown your year with His goodness – Ps 65:11; complete what He has started; and fulfil the very necesssary aspects of His promises in your life.
Welcome to December 2017, see the Almighty crowning your year with bounty.
