TOPIC: Gracious God (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 16 May 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Kings 24-25; John 5:1-24
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 4:13-16
MEMORY VERSE: “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:” – Romans 3:24
Many Christians interpret the grace of God as the ‘Unmerited favour’ of God (Favour that we are not qualified to have; unearned love and favour given to man through God). In actual fact, God is a gracious God and grace actually means more than the Unmerited favour of God.
Grace is the application of Christ’s righteousness to the sinner; it is virtues proceeding from divine influence such as faith, meekness, humility, patience, generosity. It is spiritual power. It is gratitude. It is final salvation i.e. eternal life. It is a kindness, to say and do what is right. It is gratitude.
Beloved, it is time to tap into all the facets of grace that God has made available to us. He is kind, forgiving and merciful God. Come unto the throne of mercy that you may receive grace and as we no longer live under the old covenant when the ‘mercy seat’ made of pure gold was approached once a year on the day of atonement, but with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ the mercy seat was changed to a throne of mercy. Jesus Christ was the perfect sacrifice that allows us to approach the throne of mercy. Because ‘by grace you have been saved through faith’ (Ephesians 2:8).
THE GOOD THINGS OF LIFE ARE GOTTEN BY STRENGTH WHILE THE GREAT THINGS OF LIFE ARE GOTTEN BY GRACE.
May the grace of God abound in your life today and always.
My angel of blessing, locate me now, in the name of Jesus.
My angel of blessing will not go unless he blesses me, in the name of Jesus.
Lord, let my cries provoke angelic assistance, in the name of Jesus.
Lord, give me the name that will bless and transform my life forever, in the name of Jesus.
Let every hindrance targeted at my angel of blessing, be dissolved, in the name of Jesus.
O Lord, deliver me from evil stones thrown at me by unfriendly friends, in the name of Jesus.
Every evil riot and rage against me, be disgraced, in the name of Jesus.
