Been thinking about that word since we sang about it in church yesterday.
“Your grace finds me” is the line that got me.
Last week, I was reading in the book of Exodus and I came across some verses that kind of got me too…
23 After a long time, the king of Egypt died. The Israelites groaned because of their difficult labor, they cried out, and their cry for help because of the difficult labor ascended to God. 24 God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
25 God saw the Israelites, and God knew. (Exodus 2:23-25)
And, God’s grace found the Israelites when they needed it the most.
I don’t know about you, but I needed to hear that last week and yesterday and today (and most likely tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that and…well you get my point).
God’s grace finds me.
So, here’s all I have to say…
Whatever your circumstances are today, God’s grace finds you.
Whatever your feelings are today, God’s grace finds you.
Whatever your temptations are today, God’s grace finds you.
Whatever your pain is today, God’s grace finds you.
Whatever your fears are today, God’s grace finds you.
God’s grace finds you today and every day because He hears you, He remembers His promises to you, He sees you, and He knows you.
Today might be a day where you need to hit the “pause” button or the “refresh” icon of your life and pray this prayer of David as you wait for God’s everyday grace to find you where you need it the most.
Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me,
for I am poor and needy.
2 Preserve my life, for I am godly;
save your servant, who trusts in you—you are my God.
3 Be gracious to me, O Lord,
for to you do I cry all the day.
4 Gladden the soul of your servant,
for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5 For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,
abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.
6 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;
listen to my plea for grace.
7 In the day of my trouble I call upon you,
for you answer me. (Psalm 86:1-6)
