A Thought for Today – March 14, 2022

” Victory by God’s Grace ”

We all like to experience victories. We like our sports teams to win, our country to come out on top. How many victories do we experience? Are these victories a reflection of how good we are or a reflection of God’s Grace?

Please read the following verses.
   
Deut 9:1-6

Victory by God’s Grace
1 “Listen, O Israel! Today you are about to cross the Jordan River to take over the land belonging to nations much greater and more powerful than you. They live in cities with walls that reach to the sky! 2 The people are strong and tall—descendants of the famous Anakite giants. You’ve heard the saying, ‘Who can stand up to the Anakites?’ 3 But recognize today that the Lord your God is the one who will cross over ahead of you like a devouring fire to destroy them. He will subdue them so that you will quickly conquer them and drive them out, just as the Lord has promised.
4 “After the Lord  your God has done this for you, don’t say in your hearts, ‘The Lord  has given us this land because we are such good people!’ No, it is because of the wickedness of the other nations that he is pushing them out of your way. 5 It is not because you are so good or have such integrity that you are about to occupy their land. The Lord, your God, will drive these nations out ahead of you only because of their wickedness. To fulfill the oath he swore to your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 6 You must recognize that the Lord your God is not giving you this good land because you are good, for you are not—you are a stubborn people.

If we are believers living a life for Christ, the victories we experience are because of the grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. For me, it comes down to this. If anything good is coming from the ministry I am involved in, it is because of the Grace of God.

And if ministry is not going well, that is because of my shortcomings.

Thank You, Lord, for using a sinner like me for Your honor and glory. Thank You for Your grace and mercy.
    
Thank you, Lord, for loving us so deeply.

Have a great day in the Lord, and be thankful for all that has been done for you.

What an awesome Lord God we serve.

Be Blessed

Be a Blessing;

Amen
