Grace is When

10 Comments


 Growing in grace they will still thrive and bear fruit and prosper in old age. Psalm 92:14 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Grace is not something we are born with. When someone does us wrong the natural inclination is to seek revenge.

It is only when we surrender all to Christ that He will send the Holy Spirit to burn that wicked trait out of you to be replaced by a heart of grace.

Now just as when you plant seeds today you do not harvest them tomorrow neither are you blessed with unlimited grace from the beginning. It take time to mature just like flowers.

For me, when someone crossed me I was very vengeful and cruel in getting my pound of flesh. It took an experience where the Lord told me to stand there and take the abuse without retribution. That was hard but through the power of the Holy Spirit successful.

It has taken me another eleven years and I am still working on it.

The Holy Spirit has brought me a long way since then and there is still a ways to go.

Oh, and by the way, do not think the wicked ones escaped punishment. Jehovah brought me to a place and told me to stand and watch.

I witnessed His justice and it was far more severe than anything I could have done.

There was no joy in my heart at seeing His justice handed out but fear. Fear, because, of what would happen to me if I angered the Lord.

Now sometimes we have to understand the others situation.

So perhaps a woman was abused by her dad and or brothers and she is cold towards you at school or work. You do not know why unless you are patient, gentle and loving with her or find a Christian woman to talk with her. Maybe it is a cultural thing or maybe there is problems in the others life. We need to be patient and with prayer ask Jehovah to open our eyes to the others situation and the proper course to take.

“Grace is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back.” Unknown

Prayer: Please my Beloved Heavenly father Jehovah Heseh (God is love) bless me to always emulate You and expand a loving heart in my life so as to bring the lost unto You and so as to please You. I sincerely request this in the name of the most loving best friend who has shown me His love all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  1. Yes! I believe God endows us with grace before we are born but it doesn’t “open up” (for lack of a better description) until we sin. But we are born with grace because He knows we will sin and He supplies us with all of our needs. 🙂

    And yes, we should try not to judge others but try to figure out where they are coming first. Wo knows if the driver who honked at you has a sick kid at home or not?

    Have a great day and did you have a good Thanksgiving? (If you live in the USA, of course). 🙂

  2. “I witnessed His justice and it was far more severe than anything I could have done. There was no joy in my heart at seeing His justice handed out but fear. Fear, because, of what would happen to me if I angered the Lord” I always get, “but don’t you just want to do this or that?” Yep, and the thought is just as bad as doing it, God is helping me with that BUT I tell them the same thing you said, what God can do is far worse that what I could even imagine, AND He can do that to me also.
