“You have seen the worst that I have done but you still choose to forgive me when I call on your Son.”
Common, too common is the sin of forgetting the Holy Spirit. This is folly and ingratitude. He deserves well at our hands, for He is good, supremely good. As God, He is good essentially. He shares in the threefold ascription of Holy, holy, holy, which ascends to the Triune Jehovah. Unmixed purity, and truth, and grace is He. He is good, benevolently, tenderly bearing with our waywardness, striving with our rebellious wills; quickening us from our death in sin, and then training us for the skies as a loving nurse fosters her child. How generous, forgiving, and tender is this patient Spirit of God. – Charles Spurgeon
And there I was, broken, confused and distraught about the things happening in my life only to discover it was Him that kept me from falling apart at the seams that He has repaired time and time again. The fire I once held inside these bones were soon extinguished by complacency and past regrets that I could not forgive myself, but only through Jesus. Will I ever learn of my mistakes or keep doing them so that our Father has to teach me over and over again?
I once was in this situation, and I’m sure you were to at a certain time in your life or you may be right now. Once we knew of Salvation we were ecstatic, our fire was burning red-hot. People knew it by looking into our eyes and seeing the fire that we held in our hearts. A consuming fire that if we were around others for a period of time our ember’s might to ignite a new fire that they have never known existed. We were World changer’s that were bold as a lion and walked away from evil instead of seeing how close we can get to it without getting hurt.
“As days pass and months go by if we do not keep the fire hot by the inviting of the Holy Spirit it soon becomes dwindled down by complacency that soon becomes a heap of ash.”
So how does this relate to Grace? By allowing Him to change your perspective views that you have looked at differently than God has. Let your disability be Gods ability to use you in a way that you have never imagined. Change? No, it’s a transformation that only the Holy Spirit can perform to help you overcome those “trip wire” snares that the enemy wants for you to not pay attention too and keep tripping over.
Let Grace transform the way you think, talk, react & perform in the spiritual battlefield. And have Him stir the fire inside of you to be a World Changer.
