Saturday (SEPT. 19th)
Ephesians 2:8, 1John 4:16, Romans 8:31-32 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: *And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. *What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?”
Often times when God appeared to people, He would instruct them to ‘fear not’ because fear does not accompany love. If a very powerful person who loves you
greatly comes around, instead of being afraid you will likely be full of faith and confidence, right? That is how God wants us to feel each and every moment of our lives.
The love that caused God our Father to sacrifice Jesus for us also causes Him to freely and abundantly give us every other thing that we need from Him. Think about it. His love for you is so strong and His grace available to you is so abundant. Everything Jesus
went through is a sign of how much God loves you and how much He is willing to manifest His mighty saving power in your life.
There is mighty saving power in God’s abundant grace and great love for you; power to save you both from sin and from all circumstances. In our second text above, John said that ‘they have known and believed the love God has for them.’ So many believers do not know the extent of the love that God has for them and from those who know it, some do not really believe it. So many believers still place limits on the power and extent of God’s love towards them. Romans 5:8-10 says, if when we were sinners God exemplified His love by causing Christ to die for us, now that we are His children He will save us even much more by Christ’s life. Faith is the channel through which the power of God’s abundant love and grace flows into our lives. If you will believe, Child of God, you will see the glory of God in your life.
Prayer Focus: Meditate and thank God for the power of His great love towards you. Pray about any issue that you want God to manifest His saving power in.
Grace for Dominion…
