I don't know how electricity works but I know if I flip the switch the lights come on, the car starts, the computer works and the telephone connects me to others. I just accept it, use it and yes I am more appreciative of it after I have not had it for awhile (power shortage). I don't understand Grace (GOD'S gift of HIMSELF to us) but I accept the generous, free, totally unexpected and undeserved spontaneous gift. The Greek translation is "that which brings delight, joy, happiness and good fortune. Many teach that Grace is GOD'S supernatural power within us so we can endure life's hardships. I believe these teachers have the subject and object backwards. When we have Grace we focus on HIM and not the problems. We don't even call them problems, we just know we have the assurance of GOD'S presence. Acts 15:11, "We believe it is through the grace of our LORD JESUS that we are saved..." If we doubt Grace we doubt our Salvation. So we welcome each daily "event" because we know we are being transformed to be more like HIM. Do you have worries and problems today? JUST FLIP THE SWITCH, it's a free gift we don't understand (don't have to either) just accept it and use it!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
