Now is a powerful word, my friend. It speaks of the present moment. It tells the story of your today.
What is today saying? It is saying because you are here; because you are experiencing me, His grace is working in your now moment.
Oh, for feet that could travel to the past and remedy every wrong. But you and I have been given this gift of today. Along with this ability to go forth and enjoy this day, there is grace.
Grace. That beautiful five-lettered word that reminds me, I didn’t earn it anyway. I didn’t deserve it any more than I deserved this time to experience my now moment. But God gifted them both to me. And He gave them both to you, too.
Anything we think that we can add to the pot to suppose that we are counted worthy to receive this on our own, remember what His holy Word says: “Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God” (2 Corinthians 3:5). Remember that God’s grace is poured out upon us and our day from the pure motive of love.
The grace of now says come and enjoy me, partake of me, walk in me, live in me, work in me, and be renewed in me.
As the Lord spoke to Paul, “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9) is He speaking those words to you today? Whatever your “now” looks like, the grace of the Lord is still alive and active in this moment of today.
