Summary: Grace delivered victory at the cross and Grace has been winning ever since, for everyone willing to embrace and accept the gift of Grace!
Grace Wins Every Time
As I sit here this morning pondering what I have witnessed in the last 48 hours. The main thought resonating most with my spirit, are the words to an old hymn of the church.
My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness. I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus name! On Christ the solid rock I stand! All other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand! (By Edward Mote and William B Bradbury)
Im thinking when the words were penned, maybe the writers felt the personnel issues they faced, were similar to what society feels today.
The Political theatre and saga nationally we are witnessing, moment by moment continually stoops lower than anyone ever thought possible.
Make no mistake the accuser, those willing to do the bidding of the accuser and all of hell are more active now, than any other time in history. The effects are far reaching felt by everyone, no stone is left, unturned.
10-12 And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.
Children have a way of controlling our life do they not – I heard about a young boy who received a harmonica for Christmas from his uncle. After the first of the year he saw his uncle for the first time since receiving the harmonica.
With a large smile he said, “Thanks for the harmonica you gave me for Christmas," "It’s the best present I ever got."
"That’s great," replied his uncle. "Do you know how to play it?"
"Oh, I don’t play it," the little fellow replied. "My mom gives me a dollar a day not to play it during the day and my dad gives me five dollars a week not to play it at night!"
What we are hearing nonstop everyday is, the choir of hell relentlessly distracting the masses blowing their horns.
While everyone would be willing to give a few bucks to make the noise and threats go away, a donation in a wrong place won’t make a difference. But a investment in the right place will make all the difference!
Wishing something would go away is the equivalent of what the Bible refers to as, “with man nothing is possible!”
Trusting in God and His Grace as being sufficient for every need, no matter what the need, makes everything possible!
Circumstances will always take your focus away from Grace! No matter what circumstances are saying, or trying to dictate are going to happen, Grace always Wins!
In every generation, the accuser has reinvented the same old lies of fear and condemnation. Only his tactics are more overt and have gotten more brash and unbelievable to the point of far to many, have come to start believing the lies!
God knew there would be chaos and times of uncertainty in the world. That’s why God gave us a relevant word, for every situation and for every generation!
God would have me tell you today, two words to give you comfort and peace! Grace Wins! That’s right! Grace won yesterday and Grace wins today and Grace, no matter how things may appear to be tomorrow and the rest of eternity Wins!
Romans 13:1 NKJ
Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God
Well, do you know who the president is? Doesn’t matter Grace Wins! More importantly God knows who the president is. And God knew who the president was eight years ago, 28 years ago and 128 years ago! At all times Grace has been and will always be Victorious!
Well I don’t like the way he’s doing things. Public opinion doesn’t matter, because Grace still Wins!
The same has been said of prior presidents, of prior kings and monarchs, of just about every elected or appointed official since the beginning of time and Grace has always been victorious!
God’s promises are relevant and God’s words are timely for every occasion and every generation! The words Jesus spoke right before His heavenly ascension hold as much weight today, as the day He spoke them! Jesus said;
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
