God’s grace is amazing but sometimes I wonder if we have forgotten how truly amazing it is. The word “grace” is often so common in church or other religious settings that it can become familiar, causing us to forget its true value. Romans 5:8 (AMP) says, “But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us.” God sent His Son to die for us before we were even following Him, which is amazing! I believe that when we have a true revelation of all God has done for us, we can overcome any frustration in our lives.
Frustration happens when we’re trying to do something in our own strength that we cannot do. It is a work of the flesh because we’re trying to make something happen that only God can do through His grace. My personal definition of grace is: God’s power made available to us free of charge, enabling us to do with ease what we could never do on our own with any amount of struggle or effort. We all need the grace of God so when He calls us to something, we’ll be equipped to do it.
When I first started my ministry, I thought I had to make everyone like me and the pressure was more than I could stand! I would get discouraged when it seemed like someone was giving me a funny look or left during my teaching because I would think they didn’t like what I was saying.
