I could never have enough of it; I can’t live without it. God’s grace sustains me. As I prayerfully considered what God would have me share in this new year, He led me to share a few, “2020, A year of…” words of encouragement. This one, “grace,” is the one that resonates with me the most right now. I’m at a place in my journey where it is only by His grace that I press forward. For those like me who day by day lean on His grace, I encourage you, we are at a good place. Relying completely on God and the strength and grace He provides is the best posture we could be in. As we keep seeking His grace, we will keep finding His grace. We must keep our eyes always fixed on Jesus, our Lord and Savior. He fulfills, He heals, He makes whole.
Lord, Thank You for Your unfailing love and for Your never ending mercy and grace. For all those who need Your grace in this new year, I pray that you would pour it out in abundance. Thank You that You never leave us; You never forsake us. With You by our side we will never fall. You uphold us and strengthen us. God, You have shown us so much grace! Thank You, Lord! May we experience more and more of Your grace as we press forward, keeping our hope and trust always in You. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen!
