The hand of grace didn’t let go of my hand. The divine light kept guiding me as I climbed the mountain. The higher I climbed in my vision, the more spectacular the view became in real life. My perspective in life changed. I was learning to look at everything and everyone through His eyes, not mine. Hope started taking root, becoming the stronghold of my life, keeping me going. I became more hopeful as I saw the work of God’s hand in my life.
It’s always about God’s timing. When, where, how and who He will reach. Now I know, even in the dark moments of fear and pain, I am loved by God. I thank and praise Him for coming into my life. I thank Him for salvation and redemption. God chooses broken, weak and ordinary people to shame the strong, arrogant and haughty. God is attracted to the weak ones. He is attracted to those who are searching for Him and seeking His heart.
(Psalm 105:4) ” Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.”
The Lord is all I have and I will always gaze in His direction for guidance.
As I rested in the Lord’s sovereignty, His Light grew brighter and brighter within me. The emptiness I once felt was now filled with His presence. Things which were once significant, lost their grip on me. I really began to understand the good news of God’s grace.
Grace is one of God’s character traits. What grace means is that God loves us, forgives us and blesses our lives, even though we don’t deserve any of it. By His grace, God gave us the gift of salvation. This gift came at a high price, the precious blood of Christ. But grace costs us nothing. So as you and I come before God and accept Christ’s death for our sins, and believe in His resurrection and eventual return, we will have a life of peace, joy, and eternal prosperity. And no one in the world will be able to separate us from the hands of grace.
There were days that I couldn’t get myself out of bad because of physical pain. I also felt pain and disappointment caused by circumstances, some affecting me and others that I brought upon myself. God reminded me of the hope and rest that is available to me through His hands of grace. In spite of not understanding why sometimes bad things happen to good people are the perfect moments to put my trust in the Lord, my savior Jesus Christ. I thank Him for being so gracious to me during hard times. When I turn to Him for understanding, He enlightens the eyes of my heart to see things clearly.
God was training me to find Him in each moment. Each step that I took toward the Light connected me to the channel of his loving presence. Sometimes his blessings came to me in mysterious ways – through physical and emotional pain, or relational conflicts. All of this was telling me to trust His goodness. My experience, visions and His word were teaching me about His mercy and grace.
Knowing God and dwelling day and night in His presence doesn’t mean one will have a trouble-free life. Adversity is part of life. But the good news is; the Lord is sovereign and full of grace. He will take the hands of those who know Him step by step through the rough times.
(2 Corinthians 13:14)
” Praise God from whom all blessings flow.”
Since I am saved by God’s grace and He gives me victory over sin, I don’t need to run from pain, hide from problems, or blame them on others. I can accept them in His name, lay them at the foot of the cross, and watch how God uses them for his purpose. I know now that Christ Jesus is the expression of God’s grace.
“Remember, O Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways, according to your love remember me for you are good, O Lord.”
This is my prayer for you, dear reader:
“May the hands of grace lead and guide you all the days of your life. May He open the eyes of your soul, that you may see good in all things. May peace, joy, love and truth always follow you through eternity.” Amen!
Please be on the look out in the near future as I will tell you how this “Miraculous Journey Linked to the Miracle Itself”. When I reached to the top of the mountain, I found…….
