“Delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
(Psalm 37: 4)
How wonderful it is to know that God’s grace is always available to us. It’s comforting. It’s reassuring. It’s peaceful. But it seems to me that if we are to experience God’s grace we need to get on the same wavelength with God. We can recognize God’s grace only by our willingness to let God into our lives. The grace is there, we have to stop and get in touch with Spirit. It’s like tuning our radios to a certain frequency. The station we want is out there, it’s broadcasting, but we have to tune our receivers to the right signal to hear it. God speaks to us at the level of our willingness to listen. When we have the willingness to listen to God what we find is that God is right there, waiting for us. Grace upon grace. Blessing upon blessing. Offered unconditionally.
Affirmation: “Thank you God for always being as close as my very next thought.”
Rev. Jefferson Beeker
