IN DEBT to the Believer and the Unbeliever
"Both to Greeks and to barbarians
(to the cultured and the uncultured), both to the wise and to the foolish,
I have an obligation to discharge and a duty to perform and a debt to pay."
Romans 1:14 (Amp

Grace for a New Beginning

In our journey of faith, many times we come to a difficult place, a place of decision. I call this place "a fork in the road". One way in this fork is the way of exit, finding a quick fix, an easy out, a path that pleases and satisfies our flesh and our old carnal nature and mindset. It's the path of our own control. The other way is the way of faith, it's the way of total surrender, it's the way of looking UP to the Source of all Grace and choosing the path of the Spirit, the path of faith and "Grace for a New Beginning". It's the path that has been laid out and prepared for you already, the path that Jesus has walked down and left footprints for you to step into. The people that you carry in your heart, the needs that they have etc, you bring to Jesus, the Source of all Grace, and you choose HIM. You choose the walk of faith with the Source of all Grace. He's the Source of all grace and provision for all that we need. You fix your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith. He will supply all your needs and lead you in the path of righteousness for His name's sake. It's the path of faith. It's the path of trust, of trusting in the Lord and the Creator that created you for His purpose and the One that you have given lordship over your life to.
God is faithful. He will not lead you astray. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. His path is the path of Grace, of unearned and unmerited favor. It's a path of divine appointments and divine encounters with a living God. What kind of grace is it that you need right now? Grace for _________. You fill in the blank and then look up to the Source of all Grace and receive it. Then walk in that grace, for it has been provided for you for your path and journey of a life that will glorify your Father, His Son and the Holy Spirit.

Look up and drink. Look up and receive. Look up and be led by the Spirit of the living God. Worship Him. Praise Him. Bless His holy name.

"And God is able to make all grace abound to you,
that always having all sufficiency in everything,
you may have an abundance 
for every good work."
2 Corinthians 9:8
