Your grace isn’t a thing that You place in my hands. Your grace is your very Hand, Jesus, offered to me to hold onto. And when I don’t even have the faith for that, it’s the Hand that is on my back, guiding me forward into the next moment, because you never leave my side. Thank you, Jesus! (Isaiah 41:10-13, Ephesians 2:8-9, Hebrews 13:5-6)
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Behold, all who are incensed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; those who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish. You shall seek those who contend with you, but you shall not find them; those who war against you shall be as nothing at all. For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” Isaiah 41:10-13
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
. . . for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:5-6
One thought on “Grace”
This is comforting to me, Alicia. There are so many times when fretting and stewing and fear can dog my every decision and every waking moment. And let’s face it: there’s a lot of things to fear. Holding on to the Hand of Our Father not only gives us courage and confidence, it’s the only way I can make it through! I’m so grateful for His Word to me, grateful for His Provision for me, and grateful for young women coming on behind who are finding Jesus to be a faithful guide, and whose journey, so like my own, inspires me and blesses me. May you hold tight to that Hand of Grace!
