The Grace of God

Many have spoken or written about the grace of God. But simply put, it is God's very nature: He gives us gifts of many kinds. Things we could not earn on our own ... things to which we're not otherwise entitled. It's only because He's good, and gives good gifts to those who have sought Him. Life itself is a gift.
 
"If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?" (Matthew 7:11)
What has God given you? 

God's Word for Tuesday, 10/17/17

God-friendship is for God-worshipers; They are the ones he confides in. If I keep my eyes on God, I won’t trip over my own feet.
Psalm 25:14-15 MSG

God's Word for Monday, 10/16/17

There’s more: God’s Word warns us of danger and directs us to hidden treasure. Otherwise how will we find our way? Or know when we play the fool? Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh! Keep me from stupid sins, from thinking I can take over your work; Then I can start this day sun-washed, scrubbed clean of the grime of sin. These are the words in my mouth; these are what I chew on and pray. Accept them when I place them on the morning altar, O God, my Altar-Rock, God, Priest-of-My-Altar.
Psalm 19:14 MSG
