“ …The Lord will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold from those
who walk uprightly” [Psalm 84:11]
Grace is not permission to sin—Grace is the power of purity! What a paradigm shift comes to the heart that truly is…hard after God! Grace is not soft and mushy—it’s not a pat on the back and the words..”It’ll be okay.” Grace is the power of deliverance, the overwhelming, chain snapping, lock breaking, prison shaking power of resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Paul understood this when he said this… Grace, “…teaches us to say “No’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age” [Titus 2:12]
This power that unlocks man from the bondage of darkness is no wisp-of-wind here today and gone tomorrow. It’s the earth shaking power of God’s presence and it has with it all provision, all protection and all the peace mankind needs—it does not give permission to sin and keep on sinning. We have no need to bash prosperity Gospel since God created all things, has given us all things, and will provide all things for those who walk ‘uprightly’ in Jesus Christ. This power is with us today to transform our lives, transform our lack to plenty, our sickness to health, our blindness to sight—this is the power and the purpose of Grace!
