Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Deut.9:1 - 10:11)
“The Miracle of Grace”
“Therefore understand that the LORD your God is not giving you this good land to possess because of your righteousness, for you are a stiff-necked people.”
Oh The Miracle of Grace is on the menu for Breakfast this morning. The undeserving favor of God is truly a miracle. In spite of who were are, stubborn dumb sheep (Isa.53:6); God takes us as we are and begins His work of transformation in us, making us like Himself, and settling us in our Promised Land. It is by His Grace through Our Faith in His Work of redemption on the cross, that we are saved and “born again” into a new Kingdom! (Eph.2:8-10). Even our Faith is not from our own effort, it’s God’s Gift to us; leaving us no reason to boast of our efforts.
Moses is laying out for Israel the impossible challenge of facing a nation of giants and huge walled cities stretching to Heaven! Then he immediately declares:
“Therefore understand today that the LORD your God is He who goes over before you as a consuming fire. He will destroy them and bring them down before you; so you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as the LORD has said to you.” (Deut.9:3).
God Alone will destroy the giants and bring them down - as Israel follows their God and Commander by Faith. What an awesome picture of the Grace of God going before God’s Warriors who follow their Commander with Faith and Trust in Him Alone! Oooh Rah!
Listen up Warrior! We must know our position in God at all times. We are His son and His daughter. We are loved unconditionally by Him. We are cared for by Him. And we are led triumphantly by Him through every fight we engage! By His Grace alone, He is our Source of Life, the True Vine - and we’re His Branch; and together We Are One! And we are invincible In Him! John 15:1-8). This is our Position in God! You guard your branch when you guard your heart (Prov.4:23). Feed it regularly every morning, noon and evening with God’s Word - and water it with Prayer.
All this is done by The Miracle of His Grace Alone working in us to desire and to do what He wants us to do (Phil.2:13). Know Your Position in God, Warrior, and you will Always be Prepared for any fight at any time, with one giant or a nation of giants.
Your Faith and Trust in The Miracle of Grace has made you One With God! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
