Without Merit

(Romans 5:8 NKJV)¬†“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”.

 

The unmerited favor of God came into your life because of the love of God. God did not wait for you to live a good life before He saved you. Rather, He sent His son to die for your sins while you were still messed up in sin. This is so amazing that it can only be understood by divine revelation.

Until a man understands the love of God, the redemption of mankind from the bondage of sin and death will be meaningless. Christ died for the ungodly! This is what the grace of God is all about. In as much as God expects you to justify His grace by living a life that is pleasing unto Him, you must realize that you can never please God enough to earn your salvation.

Child of God, you need to understand the message of the cross. It is all about grace! Don’t ever put your good works above the grace of God. In fact, good works can only be truly produced after you have embraced His grace.

Stop trying to impress God. Receive grace today and you will be amazed how easy it will be to please your Heavenly Father.

DAILY SCRIPTURE READING: Romans 5
MY DAILY CONFESSION

I have favor with God and men. My ways please the Lord and He makes my enemies to be at peace with me. The Lord is always with me and He gives me favor before people in high places. I have a good heritage. I am blessed because I am in right standing with God. I am surrounded with a shield of God’s favor.

I have chosen the Lord and He causes situations to align for my good. The hearts of the king are in the hands of the Lord and as rivers of waters, He directs them in my favor. I have audience with the kings and princes of this world because I am favored by the King of kings.

I am empowered by the grace of God to live a victorious life over sin, sicknesses and poverty. I have not received the grace of God in vain. I do not indulge in sin because of God’s grace. Rather, I bring forth good works to glorify God on earth. I am accepted in the beloved and there is no condemnation unto me.

My words, attitudes and conducts bring favor to me at all times. God is able to make me overflow in all grace. I have divine grace for the different aspects of my life.

The grace of God is my sufficiency in all things. I have received the gift of God’s grace and by this grace I excel in all aspects of my life. Lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places. My talents and skills find great expression in life because I am endowed with the grace of God. I conduct myself honorably at all times and favor naturally comes to me.
