Today’s God Gold is a message that hit me in the past couple of years and a gold that was sent out way before a blog, FaceBook page, or anything else was even thought about! I had a friend tell me recently to not feel like I need to always bring you new and fresh messages of God Gold because God’s Gold doesn’t change! It’s been so cool to realize how God’s Gold that He brings into our lives never gets old, it never loses that power that transforms our lives, God’s Gold and the messages He writes in our lives is always a fresh and new perspective with the same life-giving power!!! So, as much as I’ve wanted to bring you only something fresh and new, this lesson has opened up a truth that all of God’s Gold is good and that never changes. So today is labeled “Throwback Thursday,” because it came from some time ago but I pray it encourages you today in a new and exciting way!!! I am so thankful for you and to be able to send these messages of gold to you!!!
“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
Grace is a HUGE word for believers and I’ve always known that but I think it’s easy to overlook just how HUGE Gods grace really is! I’ve always heard grace and thought, yeah what Jesus gives me when I commit my sins to Him and receive His forgiveness. Even though I should never be able to stand before God or be seen as clean, because of the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross for my sins, His blood breaks the truth of “what should be” and His blood washes me clean of my sin, that’s the truth of what is! The Gospel!!! The grace Jesus gives is so undeserving and when we sin, fall short of Gods ways, His grace picks us up even when we’re in our lowest possible place! The beauty that I know I overlook way too often is the Power of Grace! Gods powerful grace is the catalyst for transformation from the things we come to him to commit and ask forgiveness! By transformation I mean, Gods grace gives us the strength to live in new ways, to purify our heart of worldly or fleshly desires so we can turn away, move past and be obedient to live more like Jesus! Not just saying God I’m sorry for doing this or that, please forgive me, then keep going whatever way you want so you wind up right back where you started! Jesus didn’t die on the cross for our sins so we could just roll around in them and ask for forgiveness, He died to pay our sin debt and set us free from the power of sin so we don’t have to live in it anymore! When He died and was resurrected it was for me and you to do the same every single day. Die to the old, walk in the new. When we’re in our weakest points, we feel like we can’t go no more, we want to give up, that’s when Christ shows up and shows out giving you everything and then some to keep walking out this life no matter what your struggle! His grace is much more powerful than we could ever imagine and I don’t even feel worthy to talk about it but dang isn’t it awesome!! The only key to unlocking this powerful grace, you ready it’s a big one, BELIEVE IT!!! It’s so easy and simple, that’s why I seem to overlook it so much! Believe that your sins are forgiven and paid for by the blood of Jesus, believe that even in your weakest state the power of Jesus grace will lift you up! The moment you believe that Jesus’ grace is powerful enough to change you, you are changing! The more you believe, the more you will continue to walk more like Him! Because of this same grace I’m jacked to tell you that I struggle a lot, I sin, and I’m weak but I can boast in my weakness cause the grace of Jesus shows up even more! Tap into His grace today!
