Weekend Devo — Grace

966855_sacred_page_3 "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." — 2Corinthians 12:9

God has brought me to this verse four times in one week. Each time I’ve prayed over a specific ongoing issue, he’s bought me back to or reminded me of this verse.

Years ago I remember asking someone at church what exactly grace was. He said, “It’s God’s unmerited favor.” It’s unearned. Christianity is the only faith that doesn’t require us to earn our way into heaven, because of God’s grace. And his mercy.

My prayer now is that God would help me fully understand what his grace means in my life. For a perfectionist and overachiever like myself, this a difficult journey, to let go of my attempts to earn God’s favor and understand that I’m already acceptable in his eyes. In fact, there’s nothing I can do to make myself more acceptable.

Jesus already took care of that.
