Joel and Victoria Osteen’s daily devotional July 18, 2016 – Grace Abounds
Today’s Scripture: “And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” - (2 Corinthians 9:8, NIV)
Topic: Grace Abounds [July 18, 2016]
What is it that you have need of today? Remember, we serve a God of abundance. Our God is always more than enough. No matter what is on your “plate of life,” God wants to empower you with His grace.
One meaning of the word “grace” is God’s good will, loving-kindness and favor. His grace, His good will is what keeps us. His favor strengthens us and causes us to increase. He’s already extending that grace to you right now. All you have to do is open your heart and humbly receive it by faith.
Notice in this verse that when He pours out His grace on you, you will have all that you need at all times...that’s living in abundance. When you are living in abundance, you are equipped to pour out that goodness and blessing on those around you. Abundant grace leads to abundant living, and abundant living leads to abundant giving! Today, receive His grace because it abounds to you!
A Prayer for Today: “Father, today I humbly come before You. I surrender my heart, my will, mind and emotions to You. I ask that You pour out Your grace on me today and equip me for every good work in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
