Grace Abounds

Oct 06, 2022

Today’s Scripture

Romans 5:20, NKJV
But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more...

Today’s Word

God has made us a new creation in Christ, but He doesn't take away every negative desire, where you're never tempted to be impatient, critical, rude, angry, jealous, or to compromise again. Some people let the same personal enemies the sour attitude, the addiction, the un-forgiveness hold them back for years. Everybody struggles with some wrong desires, but don't excuse them and allow them to stay. That's why the apostle Paul says, "I die daily." He was saying, "When that temptation rises up inside again, I put it straight back in the grave."

This is where the abounding grace of God shows up. You have the grace to overcome. The temptation may not ever totally go away, the desire may be there, but God's grace, His enabling power, will always be greater than what's trying to stop you. His grace is greater than a critical attitude or an addiction. If you deal with the things that are holding you back, God will release the big things that belong to you.

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You that You are working in me and Your grace is abounding in me. Thank You that I have the power to overcome and be disciplined to do the right thing. I believe that Your enabling power in me is greater than the forces against me. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
