We all have dreams and goals this New Year. Whether we have it written down on paper, on electronic devices, or in our minds, we all have things we believe to happen for us..
But we must realize that we can do or be nothing on our own. No matter the strategizing, planning, and efforts, it will take God’s grace to make us that which we desire to be.
Our primary goal should then be to seek God’s grace, and it is a lot of work: studying God’s word and spending time with Him in prayer. But if we do the work, God has promised to release His grace and His grace is sufficient for us.
It is by His grace only, and only His grace can set us apart for the greatness and success we desire.
Have a super blessed new year!
I am what I am by God’s grace, and God’s grace hasn’t been for nothing. In fact, I have worked harder than all the others—that is, it wasn’t me but the grace of God that is with me. 1 Corinthians 15:10 (CEB)
