🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥

📜Psalm 84:11 “For the Lord, God is a Sun and Shield: the Lord will give Grace and Glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.”
🔥Grace is only found in the sight of the Lord. We’re not the ones to ‘grace’ ourselves. “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” Genesis 6:8
🤲🏽Therefore if grace is found in the Lord’s sight, then we should labor to be in God’s presence at all times, even when we feel like we have gone contrary to His will. That’s why it is defined as undeserved favor.
✝Christ died, that we may approach the throne of grace boldly (Hebrews 4:16). Here’s where ALL our needs are met. Therefore do not frustrate the grace by keeping away from the Throne (God’s presence) due to one reason or the other. Remember if your ‘righteousness’ was the gauge, then you’d be disqualified since this is like filthy rags before the Lord. Isaiah 64:6
✝Grace is synonymous to Jesus Christ (Philemon 1:24). We’re justified by God’s Grace (Titus 3:7).
👉🏾So then, when the Bible tells us where sin abounded, Grace did much more abound (Romans 5:20), The Word is referring to the sin that has been brought to the foot of the Cross by the repentant man and not the sinner continuing in his/her sinful ways. (Romans 6:6).
💡Grace is a prerequisite for doing every good work. The more you abound in Grace, the more you abound in every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:8). You abound in Grace by choosing to remain in the Lord’s eyes night and day.
👎🏾Frustrating Grace means departing from the Cross and expecting It to work for you. © _anneobure_
🙏🏾Father, thank You for Your Grace. Help me to remain at the foot of the Cross, where divine exchange takes place, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
