Living And Resting In His Grace

Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.
Proverbs 3:5–6, AMP


Depending on the Lord’s grace and resting in His finished work does not mean doing nothing. Just look at Apostle Paul, who lived by God’s grace. He saw first-hand how a revelation of God’s grace turned him into the effective and hardworking apostle that he was (1 Corinthians 15:10).

How do we rest in the Lord and still find ourselves effectively doing what we need to do? It’s simple—just do what you ought to do, but do it trusting in the Lord’s favor, not in your smarts or careful planning.

Whatever you need to do today, do it with an inward rest, without worrying or fretting, knowing that He loves you, is in charge and is for you.

For example, let’s say that you’ve got a job interview coming up. First, commit the matter to the Lord. Ask Him for wisdom and favor. Then, prepare for the interview—read up on the company. On the day of the interview, dress appropriately and go for it, all the while having an inward rest as you trust the Lord for His wisdom and favor. As you do what’s needed, He will guide you and empower you to do what’s really needful and right. He’ll also give you favor with your interviewers.

Beloved, rest in His grace today and let the Lord lead you to good success!

      I’d like to encourage you to right deep in the word of God, as you feed the Spirit with the word of God, the Spirit will begin to come alive as of Eziekiel 37 “Prophecy to the breath, phrophecy to the breath and he prophecied to the breath” rise from the four wind oh breath and Breath… AND THE STOOD UPON THEIR FEET AN ARMY OF ISRAEL the Lord Jesus Christ tells this going away so that Holy Spirit would and be will lead us to all truth.. Himself as He is the way, the Truth and the Life and He is seated on the right hand of the Father intersceding for us.. what a mighty army on our side.. IN CHRIST ALONE …

    I have been listening to Joseph Prince grace messages since 2013 when I was seeking desperately for the truth and happened to open a part where Joseph was singing Justin Bieber song Baby Baby and laughed so hard cause I didn”t see the so formal way of teaching and words other preachers behave from the pulpit. I said to myself this is the kind of church I want to attend. To my surprise it was in Singapore! Regardless I listen to the word of God that blows my mind and jump in joy and grow every time. The most skocking and I cannot praise God and our Lord and King Christ Jeses is ever time I ask a question in the spirit I find the preside answer either in the daily devotion. Twitter msg or any word that is coming from your ministry or sermons! This kept happening to me and It took me a whole to write about it cause I am so busy enjoying this life of intimacy with my Father God and my saviour and Lord Jesus.
    Pastor Joseph may you keep going with the blessed gift you have presented by God who is using you to make an enormous change, transforming lives inside out of so many lives like me who had known there is a good God deep in my heart since I was little, but I felt he was far away Thank you for bringing the msg with sense of humour and help me come to God with love and sense of relief that he is close to me and his son died for me. There is no greater love than this ever!! Amen.
