Mercy is like a tool in the hand of God; He uses it to avert the challenges that should come to us; while grace is like a tool given to man by God to do everything that God can do. Grace is the sufficiency of God; That's why God told Paul that His grace is sufficient for him. Mercy is obtained on the altar of prayer, grace is found in God's word. It was a cry for mercy that delivered Bathemaus from blindness. David was highly skilled in crying for mercy, he knew the words that commits God to have mercy on him.
Grace takes you beyond your limits; it's an extra tool for greatness. Grace has money in your account even when you don't have money in your account. Grace can afford to buy a car even though your financial status can't buy you a wheelbarrow. Grace is God's tool, not your tool; and that means it answers only to the capacity of God. You may limit yourself, but never try to limit the unlimited grace of God. God's grace is all sufficient, it can abound for every good work. God's grace is the application of God's word; the moment you apply the word in any situation, you've simply engaged His grace – which cannot fail.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; WHEN THINGS GET TOO HARD FOR YOU, USE THE TOOL OF GRACE. GRACE MAKES SURE IT FINISHES WHATEVER OUR NATURALLY STRENGTH STARTS. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
