What His Word means to me is all about appreciating God for being there for me despite all that is happening .  When you spend time in His presence studying the Word of God, you become refreshed, revived and renewed to keep pressing on forward despite all the challenges you face in life.    What does the His word mean to you?  I took time out to reflect on what His Word means to me.

 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart Hebrews 4:12

What His Word means to me

Your Word keeps me                           

 I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word Psalm 119:16.    

When everything else fails     

When all around me is sinking sand          

 Remember the word to Your servant, upon which You have caused me to hope Psalm 119:49.


Your  Word is my only hope  

Your Word upholds me, You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word Psalm 119:114.

Your Word is my very essence of living

 For Your word has given me life Psalm 119:50b.     

Your Word is my rock

 Hold me up, and I shall be safe,   

and I shall observe Your statutes continually Psalm 119:117.  

I eat Your Word

How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!  Psalm 119:103 

I drink Your Word                                  

I sleep  with Your Word      

I remember Your name in the night,

O Lord, and I keep Your law Psalm 119:55.

 In my dreams Your Word is there                       

 

Forever, O Lord  Your word is settled in heaven Psalm 119:89.

Forgive

Father in heaven, we thank You  for Your Son Jesus Christ who was crucified on the cross of Calvary.  We thank You for Your blood that washes away my  sins, purifies my heart and cleanses me from all unrighteousness.  I confess that I am sinner and have  sinned against You,  Father I humble myself before you and surrender my life, all that I am to You.  Forgive me of  all my sins, both the sins of commission and omission.  Teach me how to forgive those that have mocked, persecuted, humiliated and offended me consistently and that have caused me to shut down and placed a stumbling block to my relationship with You.  So that my prayers might be answered as the Word of God says if I have anything against anyone forgive, let go of the issue so that Your Father in Heaven may forgive you.  In Jesus Name Amen.

And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” Mark 11:25-26 NKJV

His Grace

When I woke up this morning, all I could think about was  God’s divine grace over my life.  The unmerited favour that goes before me to make the crooked path smooth.  I believe strongly that He can do so much more beyond your imagination and comprehension in your life (1 Corinthians 2:9).    Therefore what does His grace mean to you?

His grace to me means that even though I do not deserve all that He has given me, I still have it.   I have divine privileged access to His abundant grace that covers me.  For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favour You will surround him as with a shield Psalm 5:12 NKJV.   Even in my imperfections, brokenness and flaws, I am His righteousness, the righteousness of Christ.  Everything I do is not in my effort but by His might, anointing and Holy Spirit so He carries me through the stormy weather and the turbulent seasons.  When it seems like there is no way He makes a way for me.  

The definition of  grace according to Wikipedia  is  “the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done to earn it”.  Furthermore,  It is understood by Christians to be a spontaneous gift from God to mankind – “generous, free and totally unexpected and undeserved” – that takes the form of divine favour, love and clemency.

In my understanding grace is beyond mercy and love.  Therefore there is a great difference between grace and mercy or kindness.  Another word for grace is favour which is widely used and familiar.  Deb Wolf  emphasized more in detail about  the important difference between grace and kindness.

God’s grace has empowered us to do what ordinarily we could not have done.  It’s a supernatural empowerment that keeps you standing in the midst of  it all.  Paul  pleaded with the Lord three times that the thorn in the flesh given to him would depart from him.  It was not specific what the thorn was however the Lord’s reply  was that His grace is enough and sufficient   to see him through.

And the Lord  said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me 2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV.

My declaration to you all is that His grace would empower you to do all things, climb the highest mountains, stand the test of time through Christ who strengthens you.  He has given you the enablement that guarantees your triumphant victory because you are overcomers by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony.

 

So Father we thank You for Your grace that is enough for us through Christ Jesus who has empowered us to stand and rejoice in You that Your name may  be glorified  in the knowledge that trials tribulations produces perseverance, perseverance encourages us to be more Christlike and have hope in You, the author and finisher of our faith.   May Your overflowing spirit of love be poured into our hearts and bring us to a place of complete satisfaction and abundance of your grace.  In Jesus Name Amen
