grace upon grace... thank you Lord!

"All that God does flows out of grace" (A.W. Tozer)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am so thankful for the presence of God's grace in my life. The favor of God bestowed so lovingly by a Sovereign God on a sinner saved only by that amazing grace.

Grace that was present even before the Cross.  Prevenient grace. A grace that proceeded everything. One that was working before our very existence.

Grace walked in the garden of Eden. Grace was present in the ark during the flood.

Grace forgave David. Sustained Moses Strengthened Job.

It was grace that rescued Daniel. And restored Israel.

God's grace. Majestic.... Matchless.  Marvelous.

Generous grace poured out lavishly by a loving God and dispersed according to our need.

Grace that overflows and spills out.

Undeserved.
Unearned.
Unmerited.

Grace that is unending and unlimited. God's grace is a well that will never run dry. Never lose its power. And never be unavailable.

God has an infinite supply of grace and so lovingly applies it to our lives. His precious hands reach down and anoint our heads with the sweet aroma of grace and allows it to penetrate, permeate, saturate and fill us.

Out of His fulness, God has given us, through Jesus Christ, His Son, grace upon grace.

More grace than I can ever deserve.

More grace than I can ever understand.

More grace than I can ever fathom is possible.

Grace like rain. Pouring down. Covering. Drenching.

Leaving behind the glorious mist of His presence. And the amazing peace that comes from knowing Him in an ever increasing intimate and personal relationship.

Just pure, unmitigated favor from God. His riches deeded to me in exchange only for my surrender to Him.

Thank you, Lord for the amazing grace that is mine because of Jesus. I love you with all of my heart and will serve you all the days of my life.

Simply beautiful. I love to feel HIS grace drenching me...... It's warm. It's loving. It's caring. It's compassionate. It's pardonable.

I couldn't imagine it any other way! Praise God!

I wonder how many days pass that I forget how lavish & powerful is His grace? Too many, no doubt!

Thank you for this dose of reality; the only reality that really matters.
