“From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another.”
John 1:16, NIV
God wants to pour out His blessing and favor upon you each and every day. It says in the Psalms that He daily loads us with benefits. So many people miss out on all that God has for them because they are weighed down by guilt and condemnation. But notice what today’s verse tells us about where His blessings come from—the fullness of His grace.
God’s grace is His unmerited favor. That means we can’t earn his blessings. We can’t work for them and we can’t change His mind about us. He pours out His blessing on us not because of what we do, but because of who He is. His blessings are based on His goodness, not ours.
Today, receive His grace. Receive His forgiveness. Let go of guilt and condemnation. Open your heart and mind to what God wants to do in your life and get ready because He is pouring out His goodness upon you with one blessing after another!
Prayer for Today:
“Father, I choose to receive Your grace today which is Your supernatural empowerment. I release guilt and condemnation and receive Your love and forgiveness. Search my heart, O God. Renew me and cleanse me by Your Word. In Jesus’ Name.”
