Our Fight Starts With Victory
Hebrew 4:16 - Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Yesterday we were praying for mercy and grace, and today we received a message reminding us that we have already been given all the mercy and grace that we would ever need, we only need to come and receive it. Praise God for it!
This mercy and grace my dear brothers and sisters is not because of what we did but only because of something someone else did. It is due to Jesus Christ that all mankind can receive all the mercy and grace that they need. We just need to have faith in Him to receive it.
A proof of this is; if you read the Bible before Jesus, there is no scripture where due to faith a person has been healed. It is only after the birth of Jesus we find scriptures which state people were healed due to faith. Faith allows us to tap into the abundant grace and mercy already made available. The Blood sacrificed of Jesus has confirmed this resource for us forever. Therefore the boldness is nothing but the faith which we need to have in Jesus and His Blood sacrifice to receive all the grace and mercy we need.
Now coming to yesterday's message of overcoming temptations; we need to tell ourselves we already have the grace and mercy therefore we have already overcome it. When we do this with faith, we are taping into the grace and mercy and actually overcome the temptation. Thus our fight starts with victory.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, I thank You for the abundant grace and mercy we have received by your Son. We thank You for confirming it for us by His Blood sacrifice. I am an overcomer and victorious over all my circumstances because of Him. Help me remember this all times. I ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
