I notice that no matter how many times we make a promise to God, it may seem even harder to make a single promise to him without breaking it than to make a thousand promises to a friend and never break them once.
Is God just one of our friends? Is he SIMPLY someone we talk to at the end of the day, at the beginning of a meal, or when troubles come down? Last time I checked, he was ABOVE all names, and he sits above us on his throne. We have quite an amazing God for being so humble and show humility by bringing himself down to our level. But why does he do that?
He's ready to pick us up from where we left off. Because in each person, he has started something beautiful. And although throughout the race our lives can look ugly, the best thing we can do is to let God do his work in us so that he may finish building us with the same amount of beauty in mind.
In the end, NO ONE is less fortunate than the other. NOT EVEN the average American who has supple amount of food, shelter, and clothing is more fortunate than the one who lives waiting for his or her next meal. Because the gift of God's love, which comes with unwavering grace and mercy is available to ALL PEOPLE to receive. There is no fortune in anything that is not offered by God.
Honestly, I really need to take into account the things I do and say. Where would I be if it weren't for the grace of God? Embrace his grace through love, but don't abuse it. He's totally fair- he can take it away and tear you apart any day.
“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”- 2 Corinthians 13:14
