Scripture Reading: 1 Peter 5:1–12
Key Verse: 1 Peter 5:12
By Silvanus, our faithful brother as I consider him, I have written to you briefly, exhorting and testifying that this is the true grace of God in which you stand.
Though there will be times when we feel alone, we can be assured that God does not desert His children. Once we accept His unfailing love, we are His forever. To understand God’s grace, we must lay aside any human, preconceived ideas about grace. Eternal grace is a gift from God.
When we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, inviting Him to transform our hearts and lives, we enter into God’s amazing grace. We receive His grace for more than just a season—it is for a lifetime.
As we grow in our spiritual walk with the Lord, we quickly discover that God’s grace toward us never changes. Peter, a man who understood grace thoroughly, wrote, “I have written to you briefly, exhorting and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it!” (1 Peter 5:12 nasb).
When doubts or fears creep into your thoughts, stand firm in the knowledge of God’s grace. Realize that He will not leave you emotionally stranded alongside the busy highway of life. He provides for every need you have—physical and emotional. The provision of His grace is an important part of your Christian belief system. Without it, you would not know, understand, or be assured of salvation’s call.
God’s grace is sufficient for all you face. Ask Him to teach you how to live each day.
Your grace is sufficient, Lord. Teach me how to live each day. Let me stand firm in Your grace.
