‘GRACE WAVES DEVOTIONAL’

WORKING MAN

WORK OUT WHAT GOD WORKS IN

Phil 2:12,13  Work out your own salvation; For God is working in you, giving you the desire and power to do what pleases Him!

When a revelation of God’s grace is quickened to us, (as we feed this revelation) it will change our heart motivations! We will experience God birthing in us His thoughts, plans and visions.

He will release the desire (passion, impetus) and power (ability, strength and provision) to fulfill them.

When God is the initiator of a thing, it will work in us:

a)  Faithfulness. b) A spirit of excellence. c)  An overcoming determination. d)  A success mindset.

As we work out these things, the glory of Jesus and His person is revealed in us and through us to the nations.

The early Church was so successful in revealing Christ that their opponents were forced to proclaim, “These are they who have turned the world upside down!”  (Acts 17:6)

Ask Him to work in you His purpose for your life, that Jesus may be revealed to the world!

Prayer:  Father, please reveal in me and through me a revelation of Jesus (the grace of God) that the world may see that You are the living God. Work in me Your purposes and plans, that i may work out those things that please You.

The Grace of Hard Work

The critics of the grace revelation that’s sweeping the world, say, that grace is too easy, it’s cheap and makes people lazy!

Let us read what Paul the apostle has to say about this!

It was to Paul that God gave the revelation of grace. (Gal 3:1-8) (he too was opposed, criticised, attacked and left for dead). Hence, Paul became the apologist for a whole new movement.

What did Paul have to say in his day to those who said grace was easy, cheap and made men and women lazy:

1 Cor 15:10  By the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward 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.

Paul says that he worked harder than all the other apostles, not because he was better, but because the grace of God was with him.

My friend, do not fear to embrace the revelation of grace. It will not make you weird, lazy or licentious, rather it will break your chains of bondage, heal your hurts, wounds and sicknesses and release you to fulfill the will of God for your life.

The grace of Jesus will not leave you empty but fill you with deep satisfaction!

Meditation Point: God’s grace will give you the desire and power to fulfill God’s will for your life. His grace will also cause you to work hard!
