God Does Not Show Us Everything

Reading for the Day: 1 Corinthians 13:12

“Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.”

The thirteenth chapter of First Corinthians is about love. It is not the hand-holding kind of love but the love that God has for us that was demonstrated by Christ. It is the kind of love that we are told to have one for another.

The goal of science is to discover the mysteries of our world. We have come a long way from the age of dinosaurs. Who would ever have thought that we would be able to travel beyond this planet and move amongst the stars. But, it didn’t happen overnight. It was a process.

The same is true with God. We can’t always see the end of the road but we know it is there. One day at a time, God lays the foundation in our lives. Each day gives us hope for the future and, eventually we find out what God wanted us to see.

There is a danger in knowing the end result at the beginning. You never learn anything. God wants to empower us and that comes through faithful obedience that everything will be revealed in due course.

Who knows? That student you tutored patiently in math may one day become a great teacher, helping other students.

Prayer Suggestions: Lord, help me not be anxious about what you ask me to do today. Let me trust and leave the outcome to You.

God’s Grace is All You Need

People talk a lot of about the Grace of God and being touched by God’s Grace, but it’s one of the most difficult concepts for most of us to understand.  After all, how can we grasp the concept of being the recipients of such an amazing and wonderful gift as the Grace that is God’s forgiveness of our sins when we are so undeserving?  And what does that Grace do to change the reality of our daily lives anyway?  The answers are amazing and truly reflect just how much God loves us and the great good He desires for us.

God’s Grace was given to us even before we were born, at the very beginning of time, so we know that it isn’t based on whether we’ve earned it or if we’ve done something to earn it:

“This grace was given to us in Christ Jesus before the ages began.”

- 2 Timothy 1:9

It’s so wonderful that God has always loved us and always will, and freely gave us this gracious, bountiful gift.  It’s an unearned blessing, a gift from our Lord and Savior that we received before we even looked for it.  God’s will for you is absolute good.  I know this is true for myself, and I also know it is true for every person on Earth.  God’s love is unconditional a Grace available to everyone, at all times and in all circumstances.  No matter who we are or what we’ve done!

That’s right – you’ve already “earned” God’s Grace simply by being a precious, individual creation of God.  Simply by existing as His creation, you are deserving of His Grace !  Nothing you do or do not do can remove that Grace from your life.  It is present here, now and always. Through God’s Grace, you are accepted and loved in every moment. Through God’s Grace you continually blessed – and our knowledge of this constant blessing is what can change the reality of our daily lives.  What could possibly bring us more joy and peace than knowing that nothing can separate us from God’s Grace?  No matter how low we fall or how high we climb, His Grace will surround us.

“Let us therefore approach the throne of Grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

- Hebrews 4:16

When we need God’s Grace and loving kindness, we can rest assured that it will be there for us.  We will be enfolded in it and can rely on it to carry us through no matter how difficult our trials, because that Grace is sufficient for every need.  When we have God’s Grace, we don’t need the forgiveness of others or the understanding of men.

We have all that we need to carry us through the problems in our lives, and the realization that our God has showered us with His Grace all our lives and He will never withhold it should embolden us – it is our guarantee that we can do anything !  With the Grace of God shielding us, what amazing things we can do with our own lives and in the lives of others, what riches we can share !  That Grace gives meaning and glory to our lives as members of the body of Christ’s church on earth – we should share that Grace with others. It is all that we will ever need to find peace in our lives, and by sharing it with those around us, that joy and peace will be magnified to the Glory of God.

“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

- 1 Corinthians 1:3

With an attitude of gratitude , we live our daily lives in the very atmosphere of God’s Grace. God’s will for us is absolute good. God’s love is unending, a grace that is for all , at all times and in all circumstances.
