God’s Grace Has Been Bestowed Upon You
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for October 16, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
“I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. For in him you have been enriched in every way – with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge.”
1 Corinthians 1:4–5
Lord our God, we thank you that you are so near to us that we may feel and know we are your children, your children who are in your hands with all that belongs to our earthly life, all our needs and temptations, all our efforts and pain. We come together to thank you, and our thanksgiving wins a victory over everything that makes life difficult for us. In this thanksgiving the harshness, crookedness, and injustice on earth cannot harm us. Protect us with your light, which gives us wisdom for all situations and which lifts us above everything that is base and meaningless and must pass away. Amen.
Daily Commentary: Everything we have is from the Lord and our needs are met everyday. There is no way we could do this on our own but with the power of God’s love behind us. This is why every word from our mouth should show praise and thanksgiving. It is through His divine grace that we have been saved and through the blood of Jesus our sins have been cleansed.
It is not enough that our words shall praise Him but our actions also. It is one thing to be holy but we must be sanctified in Christ Jesus and are called to be saints in our own lives. To all who called upon Christ shall mercy be theirs.
We have all been enriched by the Lord with special spiritual gifts and we are to use these gifts with the knowledge of the grace that has been bestowed upon us that they manifest themselves in every area of our lives, with every person we meet and to every action we take understanding that He swells within our hearts and carries His unconditional lover wherever we go.
