The force of grace

God is able to make all grace overflow to you, so that, in all things, at all times, having all contentment, you may overflow in every good work. 2 Cor. 9:8

God is the force of grace that makes of us forces of grace. When grace overflows it gets all over everything. It cannot be contained by our limitations. It will seep into places we never thought it could reach. Grace is such a powerful force that it invades seemingly solid and impermeable attitudes, thinking, and habits. This affects a chemical change on our spirits. Our responses flow from this powerful overflow of His grace rather than the obligation to “do good work.”

Lord, beyond my resources or circumstances, beyond my doubts and fears, carry me in the overflow of Your grace and cause me to be a force of grace in this world.
