Intimacy With God Is Accepting His Grace

Grace. A free gift of underserved favor. I have even heard grace stated this way, “Grace is not getting what one deserves, (death because of sin), and grace is getting what one doesn’t deserve, (favor).

If we really ponder this, grace is a part of our inheritance and our identity as believers in Jesus Christ. Why then, is hard for many to accept God’s complete grace for our life? Perhaps it is pride or fear or still feeling undeserving of his grace and his love. I can’t answer this question for you only God can, but you have to be willing to ask. That is part of the care and concern you give to your relationship with God.

Holy Spirits latest revelation to me about being more intimate with Him is to let go of; to surrender, what I think my mess ups are, to Him. He whispers to my heart, “My child, accept My great grace for your life. Stop beating yourself up over your missteps. Confess, repent and move on in freedom! You are already forgiven. Anything less would be a mockery of what I have already done on the cross!”

How would you feel if you gave someone a gift and they put it aside, not acknowledging it, not opening it and not enjoying what you have chosen just for them? I’m guessing you would feel sad and hurt.

How do you think God feels when we choose not to accept his gifts?

Precious One, if you ask God to show you how to accept his gifts he will. It may be work on your part but the gift makes is all worth while.

Shalom!

    The gifts are for the body; unfortunately many possess that which we granted. vw
