Jesus came to give us this wonderful revelation - the truth; Himself as our Grace! The Bible shows us in John 1:17 that Grace and Truth came through Jesus alone.
When we realise this truth, our lives change forever. Our thought process could never ever be the same as before thinking we had to work hard to be saved by His Grace, thinking we had to change dramatically for Him to even acknowledge us - no, we don't have to earn His Grace at all. Our thoughts now no longer are in captivity but with His Grace it has been set free forever. We can be open to just being ourselves and feel His love, taste His love and encounter all of Him.
Is it not wonderful that we as His children can live in His magnificent favour all the time. He has so much in store for us if we just believe it and act out the authority that He has given us.
Magnificent JESUS, thank You for the revelation You gave us about You being our GRACE, so we don't have to prove ourselves to You as You love us unconditionally. Amen.

God has always carried us through!
Reflecting on 2014 I know that God has carried us through many trials and made us stronger. I am sure there were times we felt like we were going to break but yet again God has given us the courage to see our situation through, He picked us up and gave us hope.
In 2015, my declaration will be to TRUST in GOD with ALL my heart no matter what. Even if my situation looks troubled, even if my trials seem unpromising, I will trust in Him to strengthen my heart so I can bear all things, keep my face bright and He can make me powerful to go through anything because I have an intimate relationship with my Shepherd who has already given me the GRACE I need and what I know is that my Shepherd loves me so deeply He will NOT allow my inner soul to starve or die - Yes, He will always care - always be there.
Augustine had a beautiful quote : "Trust the past to God's mercy, the present to God's love and the future to God's providence".
SO with a prayer in our hearts and a beautiful song in our souls, may His grace become so real to us all in 2015 an may we TRUST in Him explicitly. Amen!
