I am often amazed at the whole concept of God's grace. In the old testament before the "new deal" of God's grace, it was tough being a sinner. It seems in the stories of old that God was patient with His people, then judged and punished. It wasn't unusual for whole generations or nations to be wiped out as a result of God's judgement. Today is different.
Today God continues to be amazingly patient, but He has also become amazingly graceful. His grace or unmerited favor falls on us every day in very tangible ways. I wonder how many traffic accidents were avoided because of God's intervention. I wonder how many illnesses were prevented because of God's grace. It is really tough to know for sure, but I believe God loves us and constantly intercedes in our best interests.
I believe the opposite is equally true. I believe the evil ones are constantly attempting to kill, steal and destroy us. They are dead set at drawing us prematurely to hell. It is only by the grace of God that we escape the devil's planned destruction of everything good in our life.
Today. Now. Take a moment and thank God for His grace on your life…
