And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.
Something happens when you receive the abundance of God’s grace, lean wholly upon it and stop depending on your own efforts to see the results you want. The moment you surrender and say, “Lord, I cannot, but You can. Today, I rest in Your unmerited favor,” whatever demand that is upon you disappears into the vast ocean of His abundant supply.
Many a time, as I’m driving to church on Sunday morning, I feel the demand to preach a good message. The demand is real—more than 30,000 people in my congregation show up expecting to be well fed! That’s when I turn to Jesus and receive His abundance of grace. I say to Him, “Lord, today, You are my guest speaker! I rest in You. You speak. You feed them. You provide! You take over and I will watch You in action!” The moment I let go, His grace and His supply rush in!
Beloved, the more you keep receiving and meditating on the abundance of His grace toward you, the more you’ll walk in His abundant supply!
