His Grace is New… Every Morning

For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, Titus 2:11-12 NIV

Thank You Bible Gateway for once again giving me a word in season. I think the above verse is so fitting for the beginning of a new year. A time when most everyone embraces who they are and determines what they want to be. They make plans, goals and resolutions to change, but they often attempt this on their own.

Disclosure: On your own, you can achieve nothing more than what you already have.

For example, my son is a Lego builder, he got so many sets for Christmas and we have had a wonderful time creating masterpieces. Most sets can be reworked into different designs using the same pieces. The same is true for us. We are each created with 1 design. If we try to modify it alone, we end up using our old nature/ choices, to re-write something previously written. When we invite the Lord in to work within us, He adds to us. He creates something new, with new pieces, such as, self control, peace, contentment, joy, love, etc. Alone, I can not create these things, but with Him, I have a new day, full of new mercies, grace, and joy.

He gives us the ability to say no, to what is good, but not best. He gives us grace to love our enemies, and bless them instead of curse them. He gives us every good and perfect thing. He is, every good and perfect thing.

Blessings Today!
