Once you are presented with what the Word of God has to say about an issue, you are responsible for receiving His love, grace, & favor; and the gift of His righteousness. Remember, you are greatly blessed, highly favored, and deeply loved by your Heavenly Father.
This month, let’s focus on entering God’s rest and receiving His grace!
Luke 2:40 - And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.
According to this verse, it says that the grace of God was upon Jesus. The Bible also says that where sin abounds, grace abounds much more. (Romans 5:20) Grace for mankind is God’s unmerited, undeserved favor; because of what Jesus accomplished at the cross.
Look at the word “grace” when it is first mentioned in the Bible. Genesis 6:8 says that “Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord”. Noah’s name means “rest”. So the verse is telling us that rest found grace. In other words, when you rest, trusting in Him, you find grace!
