Grace and Favor – February 16 Inspiration

Grace and Favor – February 16 Inspiration

Grace and favor.  Kindness we need for ourselves, as well as to extend to others. Grace, in relation to God, is His unmerited divine assistance and power. Favor is a friendly gesture, gracious kindness, or a special privilege. Definitely things we need in our lives everyday!

 

 

Here’s your inspiration for this Tuesday…

“Grace is God’s power coming to us free of charge

to help us do with ease

what we could never accomplish on our own.

Grace is freeing!

I cannot make myself acceptable to all people,

and neither can you,

but we can believe God will give us favor

with the people He wants us involved with.

Sometimes we try to have relationships with people

God does not even want us to be associated with.

Know who we are in Christ sets us free

from the need to impress others.

Once we know who we are and accept ourselves,

we no longer have anything to prove.

If God is for you, who can be against you?”

–Joyce Meyer in “The Confident Woman Devotional”

My reflections:

I know I usually pray everyday thanking God for His grace, mercy, love, and forgiveness. And I pray for His divine favor on a regular basis, because I’ve experienced answers to prayer that have no other explanation than being God’s grace and favor.

So what are YOUR thoughts?

Have you had experiences that are obviously results of someone’s grace or favor?

Do you try to extend grace and favor to others?

  1. That’s really inspiring. Happiness if one of the best feelings life can offer but it doesn’t come to you when you are not full of love and gratitude. When you are content and grateful for what you have, happiness is not so far along.
