What shall I say unto the Lord, all I have to say is thank You Lord (2x), for Your goodness, thank You Lord, for Your kindness, thank You Lord, all I have to say is thank You Lord.
Thank You so much Lord Jesus (3x), we thank You (3x). You are worthy (3) O Lord!

Beloved, join me in celebrating the Lord of lords; the King of kings; the Ancient One; the Beginning and the End; the Alpha and Omega. Shout alleluia to the Lord our God Almighty He reigns, He reigns for ever more. He is so faithful, so Powerful, Wonderful, Precious and Gracious unto all who diligently Worship and serve Him.
How fast it went. The month of October will be up for us today. It was an exciting month, full of God’s visible presence and intervention in all areas of concerns in everyone’s life. Diverse miracles the Lord wrought in us and through us. Souls were saved from hell and from the hand of the tormentor, the devil.
Beloved, isn’t God wonderful? Great are You Lord, greatly to be praised, Father You are. We cannot praise You enough, everyday of our life is a praise to Your Holy Name, Your goodness and Your Faithfulness.
Finally, in our series on grace today we will be bring your way something awesome especially for most us who though understood the place of grace but cannot accept it for themselves or for others that they considered should be nailed oth er than experience the “grace of God” upon their lives (Rom 4:2-8; Ps 32:2; Ps 130:4).
God’s thought are far from ours so also is His ways. We enjoy justification under GRACE, the forgiveness of sin and the removal of its guilt and punishment (Mic 7:18-19; Rom 8:1; 33-34). We will also be considering God’s choice of us as His bride with comparison with that of Moses’s choice of wife.
Come with me as we discover more grace in our walk with God (Jas 2:23). Come along dearly beloved:
Ever Have A Tough Time Accepting The Grace Of God For Your Life?
Do I have good news for you!
Consider a couple of classic failures and how God graciously dealt with them:
- God tells him that his 90 year old wife is going to bear a child. (See Genesis 17:16)
- Abraham falls on his face and laughs (literally “mocks,” “scorns”), saying, “Will Sarah… bear a child?” (Genesis 17:17)
- In the following chapter God says of Abraham: He “will surely become a great and mighty nation, and in him all the nations of the earth will be blessed, for I have chosen him.” (Genesis 18:18)
THAT IS THE GRACE OF GOD!
- God names Sarah “Princess,” “You (Abraham) shall call her Sarah… “(Literally, “Princess“) (Genesis 17:15)
- God tells Abraham that within a year Sarah will bear a son. (Genesis 18:10)
- Sarah, who is within earshot, also laughs, “Shall I indeed bear a child when I am so old?” (See Genesis 18:12, 13)
Imagine: God names Sarah “Princess” with the full knowledge that she will soon mock His promise to give her a son.
THAT IS THE GRACE OF GOD!
It is obvious that God, in His great love and grace chooses and uses less than perfect people. People who are in the process of becoming.
So the next time you are inclined to write yourself off as an unqualified candidate for His grace, keep in mind blundering Abraham and Sarah, and God’s grace in dealing with them.
“Where sin increased, grace abounded all the more.” (Romans 5:20).
More on grace:
“He had married an Ethiopian woman.” Numbers 12:1
Strange choice of Moses, but how much more strange the choice of Him who is a prophet like unto Moses, and greater than he! Our Lord, who is fair as the lily, has entered into marriage union with one who confesses herself to be black, because the sun has looked upon her. It is the wonder of angels that the love of Jesus should be set upon poor, lost, guilty men. Each believer must, when filled with a sense of Jesus’ love, be also overwhelmed with astonishment that such love should be lavished on an object so utterly unworthy of it.
Knowing as we do our secret guiltiness, unfaithfulness, and black-heartedness, we are dissolved in grateful admiration of the matchless freeness and sovereignty of grace. Jesus must have found the cause of His love in His own heart, He could not have found it in us, for it is not there. Even since our conversion we have been black, though grace has made us comely. Holy Rutherford said of himself what we must each subscribe to—”His relation to me is, that I am sick, and He is the Physician of whom I stand in need.
Alas! how often I play fast and loose with Christ! He bindeth, I loose; He buildeth, I cast down; I quarrel with Christ, and He agreeth with me twenty times a day!” Most tender and faithful Husband of our souls, pursue Thy gracious work of conforming us to Thine image, till Thou shalt present even us poor Ethiops unto Thyself, without spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing.
Moses met with opposition because of his marriage, and both himself and his spouse were the subjects of an evil eye. Can we wonder if this vain world opposes Jesus and His spouse, and especially when great sinners are converted? for this is ever the Pharisee’s ground of objection, “This man receiveth sinners.” Still is the old cause of quarrel revived, “Because he had married an Ethiopian woman.”
Satan and the fallen angels never enjoyed it so little wonder why he came accusing you of every broken law and sin committed? He was sent down to earth and will be in the lake of fire forever, while you stand the opportunity to turn away from your evil way and make it to heaven. Hear him in Job telling God he is on a mission going “to and fro” the earth (Job 1:7; Job 2:2; Jn 1:17; Rom 6:14). He is your adversary (1Pet 5:8). He is your tempter (Matt 4:1-11; Lk 22:40-46).
Let us be wise as our Master Jesus who is “Wisdom” and accept the grace to live right and make it to eternal life. I will be glad to walk in the street paved with gold, with a spotless robe, with songs of worship on my lips bowing down before the Throne with twenty and four elders and others that will make it to the end forever and ever.
Beloved. Heaven is real; hell is real. Rapture is nearer than when you first believed therefore run so as to obtain the crown of life. Let the grace upon your life not been in vain (1 Pet 1:13; 2Co 8:7; Jn 8:51; 1 Thess 4:13-14).
In conclusion let us daily grow in grace, knowing that we will be despair without grace (2 Pet 3:18). See you in November by God’s grace.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
