… That in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
–Ephesians 2:7 NIV
Beloved, you’ve long known the sufficiency of My grace–you’ve spoken of it, you’ve believed it, you’ve faithfully stood on its truth. But now I’m inviting you to simply watch and receive as I reveal a new depth of My grace that far exceeds anything you have yet to taste or even fathom. I am about to impart to you a far deeper understanding of the incomparable riches of this grace I have so freely lavished upon you. Saying “My grace is sufficient” will no longer be a declaration of faith and truth to help you stand firm in the midst of opposition–rather it will be a shout of praise proclaiming the unfathomable riches of My abundance to you! You’ve done well, little one, to faithfully lay hold of grace, but now watch and see as My super-abounding grace … lays hold of you.
Grace. Always wonderful, always sufficient, always amazing, grace. Where would we be without grace? It’s by grace we’re saved. It’s by grace we stand. It’s by grace that we’re held together. And it is grace that will ultimately lead us home. But do we really understand grace? I mean, do we really get it? I don’t know that I do.
I love grace. I’ve laid hold of grace. I’ve embraced grace and I need grace. But I’m not sure I truly understand the abounding riches of grace He has lavished upon us in Christ. And I’m not sure I ever will … except by grace.
I’m so glad, because that means I can’t do anything to earn a greater revelation of grace. I can only receive it. I can only receive it as a child–simply opening up my heart and hands before a kind and loving Father. A Father who always longs to do so much more than I can hope or even imagine.
I have long counted on God to meet my needs–and He has never failed me–but I feel Him tugging on my heart to believe Him for more of my wants. So today I’m simply taking Him at His word and opening my heart–just a bit wider–to the One who does immeasurable more than all I can ever ask or dream.
Abba, I want a greater revelation of the incomparable riches of Your grace. I don’t just need grace–I want a greater revelation of grace that goes far beyond what is necessary and sufficient. I want to know the riches of Your super-abounding grace. I want EVERY blessing and gift that it cost You so dearly to purchase for me. I want absolutely everything You desire to give me! So I come to you as I am. And who I am is Your child. And this child is opening her heart and hands to receive from You in ways I never have before … because I know You are the Giver of every good and perfect gift. In grace, please, lavish the incomparable riches of Your grace upon me. ~ Amen
