In HIS Presence


Read: EPHESIANS 1:3-13

Meditation verse:
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Grace is the unmerited favour that you receive through faith in Jesus Christ. There’s nothing you can ever do to earn it. Your entire redemption journey is all by the grace of God. Your salvation came by grace: “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men” (Titus 2:11). After your salvation, you can serve God acceptably by grace. It is His grace working in you that enables you to do of His good pleasure. The spiritual gifts you receive after your conversion are based on grace. The power to witness to others is by grace.

By grace you continue to overcome your limitations, weaknesses, temptations, and sinful nature for God’s grace is sufficient for you and His strength is made perfect in your weakness. Your ability to do good to others is based on grace: “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8).

You have become who you are only by grace. Every accomplishment and success in your life has only been made possible by grace: “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me” (1 Corinthians 15:10). You do not get the punishment you deserve because of His grace. Grace is your enabler in time of need. It is the grace of God upon your life that guarantees your overall wellbeing. Therefore, approach God’s throne of grace this day to receive help in any area you are currently struggling in.

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
