“Envisioning God’s Unfolding Grace”
It has been said that our history informs our perception. What I discovered is that while history may inform our perception is does not have to define our perception. As Christians living in today’s world we cannot allow the problems of our past or the pain of our present to dictate, determine, or define our perception of God’s Grace in our lives. Is your past or present situations dictating, determining or defining your perception of God’s Unfolding Grace?
So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever (2 Corinthians 4:16-18, MSG).
Start paying attention to the unfolding grace of God in your life every day
