Stepping Stones: Draw on the grace of God – Now

Stepping Stones: Draw on the grace of God – Now
March 11, 2009 Dr. Karl Benzio

Transformational Tip
Draw on His grace now, not later. Prayer is how we draw on the grace of God. Don’t wait for the best time, pray now. Why are we so slow to learn that we draw on God’s grace through prayer? Why are we avoiding engaging with Him, playing “hard to get”? Don’t be fooled, thinking you love you more than He loves you. Reach out to Him, tune your radar to Him, and let His grace pour over you.

Prayer
Dear Father,
I pray to you my Lord and my God. I pray to you to show my admiration and devotion, but I also pray to You to receive Your Grace. I am thankful Lord that I can always count on receiving Your grace. When I receive Your grace, I remind myself and show evidence to others that I am Your miracle. Open my eyes and ears that I can develop radar that is tuned to your presence and incredibly wonderful activity in my life. Grow my understanding in how to use your grace to develop the mind of Christ and glorify You. Strengthen me for your use to resist my selfish paths and choose yours with perseverance.
In Jesus’ name I humbly come to You, Amen

The Truth
Working together with him, then, we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain.
2 Corinthians 6:1
Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; listen to my plea for grace.
Psalm 86:6
And from his fullness we have all received grace upon grace.
John 1:16
But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.
For truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.
Matthew 13:16,17
to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’
Acts 26:18
