Living Hope

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade--kept in heaven for you." ~1 Peter 1:3-4

No Limit

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

~2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)

Annie Johnson Flint has a remarkable story of her love for God and her dedication to live her life for Him during some very difficult times.  I encourage you to read Annie’s story.  Annie did not let the difficult things of life weigh her down.  She did not give up hope, she never gave into circumstances, and she always knew God would see her through.  Her poems can be found at Blessed Quietness .  And her story can be found at the following link Annie’s Biography .  I promise that you will not be wasting your time by checking out either link or both.  I tend to go back to Annie’s poems as often as possible and I am encouraged by her steady stand in the Lord.  She did not waiver.  The poem below reminds us that God’s grace is enough!  His grace will always be enough.  May you stand in that Truth today!

He Giveth More Grace

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added affliction He addeth His mercy;
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.

Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.

His love has no limit; His grace has no measure.
His pow’r has no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again!

God’s love has NO limit.  His grace has NO measure.  His power has NO boundary known to men.  We are living for the One, True, all powerful God who has no limits, no measure for His grace, and no boundaries to His power in our lives!  These very words should make us excited that we serve a God who cares.  We are serving the only One who matters!  God has cared about you before it even mattered.  There was a day you weren’t even thinking about it and neither was I, but God was.  God has always been thinking about you and loving you.  He’ll never stop!  Child you are His!  His grace abounds for you and it is more than sufficient for you!

Dear Father God, Thank You for reminding me that I am Yours and Your grace is enough for me.  I don’t understand a lot of things, but I do understand that Your grace will be enough for me!  I’m so glad that Your power knows no limits, Your grace no measure, and Your love no limit.

Living in Your Grace,
Sarah
