The Nature Of God – Days Of Grace

Posted: May 6, 2011 in The Nature Of God

From this day on, for you, there is no such thing as a good day, or a bad day.  There is only a day of grace. i understand this so much more than when i heard it for the first time. It was just a great sounding phrase back then. Today i… for the most part do not have good or bad days. For the most part i have eliminated judging what is good or bad. Grace… that’s what i know i have. Circumstances, situations, trials are not determining factors for what or who God is.

And some days the grace of God allows you to enjoy what is happening and some days the grace of God allows me to endure what is happening. While this seems to be true it is not the fullness of what grace is to me. A day endured is nowhere close to what a day enjoyed is, so i am working to endure less days and live in the fullness of grace and enjoy every one of them. It’s not easy because this actually sounds so good to me. It makes sense and gives me a way to describe in spiritual terms what a bad day is for me. At first i would simply answer the question how are you with, “i’m enduring.” Sounds better than, “i’m having a bad day” right. Now days my response is simply, “i am.” i am in this day filled with His grace. If i belive Romans 11:36 For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. [For all things originate with Him and come from Him; all things live through Him, and all things center in and tend to consummate and to end in Him.] To Him be glory forever! Amen (so be it). Then everything is good for me. Glory to Him is my desire, my goal if i can say that. Amen, so be it is up to me.

i am learning to not think about good and bad anymore and  just enjoying the grace that is present.  And out of the grace will come expectancy. i have great expectancy most days. i have not perfected these ideas and yes i struggle somewhere through-out every day, but far less than in days gone by.

“I know God is gonna do something today and I just want to be alive to HIM so I can see it, i wait for it, i speak it out, i live in it, i experience it, i worship HIM in it, i glorify His name in it.”

There are no good days anymore, there are no bad days.  Just days of grace. 

That’s agreed,

Days of grace.

And the grace of God comes and brings with it the nature of God that i might know Him, that i might know Him. The more i know Him the better husband i become, the better friend i become, the better father i become, the better person i become. [Not in my own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in me [energizing and creating in me the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.

That i might know Him;

And rest In Him

And Live in Him.

And move in Him

Worship him

Represent him

Hey God….
