“Though He scoffs at the scoffers, yet He gives grace to the afflicted.” Prov 3:34 There is much written about grace today. Not that my two cents amounts to much, but I wanted to give my definition of grace. It need not be preached, but it has been proven through the experience of many believers. Grace: At my point of need, God is everything to me that I thought He was not! Moses had spent forty years being trained to be everything–a god, a Pharaoh. He spent another forty years in the wilderness discovering what he was not. Finally, he was prepared to lead, having realized that he was a “not.” God told him what to go do, and Moses accurately responded, “I am not able.” God’s response was, “What is that to Me? I AM!” God is to me all that I am not. First, I must acknowledge that I am not. Next, He tells me what He is. He is everything to me of which I might have need that I am not! I am not a good father, a good husband, a good Christian, or a good witness! This is my point of need. Grace comes and meets me at my point of need! I didn’t think He could be those things to me. However, as I recognize abiding, He is to me all that I thought He was not. There is a life in me that is a good father, husband, and witness. It is His life, and He is everything to me that I am not. Look at what you are not. Don’t determine to work harder. Call on the grace of God. At your point of need, He is everything to you that you thought He was not.
