I am one of those who believe so much in the fact that GOD is awesomely magnanimous – doing so much for man and me in particular, when we do not actually deserve it all. I believe so much in the fact that I am surrounded by so many things I do not deserve. I am 100% convinced that if not for God, I would have been woken up from my sleep, only to realize that all I have today and what I am today, are just fantasies in the mind of a dreamer.
Have you ever wondered why wicked and evil people live long and even live a good life? Well, that again is because God’s grace is awesome and can only be comparable to His grace. It’s really annoying really. But that is what makes God different from us. For it is written (Rom 9:15-16) :
…. I will have mercy on whom I
will have mercy, and I will have compassion on
whom I will have compassion. So, it is not of him that willeth,
nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy
So, the bottom line of my post is simple : we are all enjoying the AMAZING GRACE OF GOD, no matter who you are and whatever you may be ; yes I mean everyone created by God. The Bible (Rom 3:23) says that:
for all have sinned, and come
short of the glory of God.
However, the bad news is that God’s grace should not be taken for granted. He says….
“because I have called and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; but ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof, I will also laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; when your fear cometh as desolation and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.” – Prov. 1:24-27
So, if you have not been doing it, make it a daily task to thank Him for all you have achieved in life. Always thank Him for His unmerited favors and mercies towards you and all that concerns you. Resist the temptation of giving the glory which belongs to God to something else or someone else. Where you refuse, one day you might find yourself without that grace that you have constantly been relegating to the background of your life and endeavors. Sadly, you will be left alone to be helped by that thing or person you have always depended upon.
