1 Corinthians 15:10-“But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.”
We were not meant to be perfect, just be as God made us to be. Yes we can sometimes do things to change ourselves but deep down we are still as God created us to be. If He did not want us to have what we have; we would not have it. ” God will never place more on us than Jesus can handle.” If it was not for God placing our burdens on His Son we would not be able to have grace today. Keep your eyes on The Lord to get through your days, he will not have you alone in your troubles; if only you believe.
“We often talk about all the things we need, but in reality there is only one thing that we need, and it is the same thing that Jesus needed: we need to become strong in spirit, filled with God’s wisdom and having His grace upon us. If you and I will allow the grace of God to have full reign in our life, nothing will be impossible to us. Without that grace, nothing is possible to us.”
“As Paul wrote to the believers in his day, everything we are and do and have is by the grace of God. You and I are one hundred percent helpless. Although we often confess as Paul did, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” that is only true by the grace of God”
Ephesians 2:8- “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.”
