The Grace has Landed us!
“Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 6:23
The journey of the year 2021 has started perfectly and smoothly, with no obstacles or delays because of God’s Grace. It will end well with a happy ending when we still allow the Grace of God to abound in our lives. We are not alone in this journey of life, especially in this year 2021 and beyond. It is time to let go of the past and start moving forward. It is time to stop living a life filled with regrets and live a life filled with joy.
However, we must do what it takes to enjoy the Grace of God in our life. Seeking God first this year comes with all the packages that will prioritize you on earth. Avoid any distractions leading to sin that can put people off from enjoying the Grace of God (Romans 6:2). We must be careful about how we use our time and energy. Let’s emphasize the importance of spending time with God.
Matthew 6:33 says, “Seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
I know you have 2021 plans and goals written already, which is good because you need to set up goals and plans for life to be successful in life. They are like prayer requests that you hope to receive a precise answer. However, take time to seek the face of God, commit and entrust it into the hand of God because the Grace of God abound more when we seek God first and take the things of the kingdom seriously. “To humans belong to the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue.” Proverbs 16:1.
Above all, do not let your hearts be troubled by the thoughts of the negative things of the past. Love yourself, love God with all your heart, and with all your soul. Show love to your neighbors as you show love to yourself. Remember, whatever you do, speak, or act without love in mind, it is useless. It is better to have faith with love and become more productive in life than to have faith mix
ed with hatred and bitterness that result in frustration. Galatians 5:6 says, “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.”
Give thanks to the Lord and let him know that you genuinely appreciate His faithfulness.
