I woke up this morning hearing “your grace finds me” singing in my head. I love that thought… That God’s grace finds ME. Not the other way around. Watch and listen to Matt Redman perform his song, Your Grace Finds Me.
There are so many other song lyrics and scripture verses floating in my head right now about God’s grace. Amazing grace how sweet the sound. Grace marvelous grace. But I love how Matt brings it down to the everyday living of our lives. The grace of God, the unmerited favor of The Lord of the universe, is there with me every moment of every day if I am His child.
My friend told me once that she uses the word grace as an acronym… God’s Richest At Christ’s Expense. I’ve never looked at this word the same since. I have the unmerited favor of God because Jesus gave His life for me. And He finds me. I don’t have to look for the grace of God… It’s there already in the “every day and the mundane.” It’s there in the laughter of my grandchildren, in this beautiful Spring we are having, in every morning I wake up with another song singing through my head. And, like the flowers blooming this Spring, I think the grace of God opens me up to all that God has to give. And if I accept His gift of grace, My spirit becomes more beautiful and fragrant.
Eph 2:7 says that God shows “the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” It will take all of eternity to fathom God’s love, and those who are saved will never plumb the depths of it. Immeasurable. Eternal. Unfathomable. And I don’t even have to look for it or earn it or work for it… It’s there already!!!
