GRACE: God’s Riches At Christ Expense is Sufficient In the Midst of a Pandemic
"The Lord is merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and filled with unfailing love.
The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation."
Psalm 145:8-9 NLT
Grace is God’s unmerited favor to each of us. It is His mercy to all, so undeserved. Grace is abundant compassion to me. Why? Because I am His child. If you have put your faith and trust in God you are His child too. Therefore, you are a recipient of this amazing grace today, April 11, 2020.
The Bible states it clear that life is full of troubles. But, no trouble, including a contagious virus, is greater than the grace of God. Are you lonely, afraid, worried, and just plain stressed? Here are precious words for you. The phrase “fear not” is in the Scriptures 365 times. How is that for a daily devotional?
So, as we celebrate Easter, let’s rejoice that we are children of a risen Lord who loves and forgives us. He has promised me heaven eternally, with no more death, sorrow, tears, or pain. Just pure joy - forever! GRACE now and PEACE forever!
Prayer: God open my eyes, heart, and mind to the reality that I’m your child and recipient of your indescribable blessings. Father, because of your love, mercy, and grace, this Easter, I am at peace. I’m so grateful. Amen
