The Fullness of Grace

Scripture: John 1:16 From the fullness of his grace we have received one blessing after another.

Observation: I have surely received one blessing after another only because of the grace of God. I deserve nothing but pain and death, there was no good in me and even now the only good is what God has put in me. Yet God watches over me and blesses me with a wonderful wife, health, work, friends and he always meets my needs and desires.

Application: To make sure I give God all the glory and praise that he deserves. Not to take credit for anything, because whatever I accomplish is through the grace of God and not of my own abilities.

Prayer: Dear Lord I thank you for the many blessings you have given me and I ask for your guidance on how to fulfill the purpose you have created me for. May I honor and glorify your name and be drawn close to you.

How Foolish

Scripture: Luke 24:25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken.”

Observation: That is me, foolish and slow to believe. Each day I continue to suffer what the day will bring, because of my lack of belief that God is with me and wants the best for me. Not that I won’t have trials, but that he will be with me through them. I don’t know why my heart is so slow to believe, God has proven himself true again and again in my life. I’m so much worse than Thomas.

Application: I know in my heart the love of God and that he is with me. I need to believe in all that happens to me He is with me. He has filled and blessed me and I need to honor him with my obedience and love.

Prayer: Dear Lord you are so worthy of all my love, praise and obedience. Increase my faith, open my eyes to glorify you.
