Each and Everyday"
in Christianity is the free and
unmerited favour of God as
manifested in the salvation of
sinners and the bestowing of
It is God's gift of salvation
granted to sinners for their
salvation. Common Christian teaching
is that grace is unmerited mercy
(favor) that God gave to humanity by
sending his son to die on a cross,
thus delivering eternal salvation.
This definition does not cover all
uses of the term in scripture.
For example Luke 2:40 (King
James Version) "And the child
grew, and waxed strong in spirit,
filled with wisdom: and the grace of
God was upon him." In this
example when using the definition of
grace to mean unmerited favor it
does not make sense that the sinless
Christ would need this. Equally how
can one fall short of grace (James
4:6) or meekness attract it and
pride repel it (Galatians 5:4)
if it is unmerited.
James Ryle has suggested "Grace
is the empowering Presence of God
enabling you to be who He created
you to be, and to do what He has
called you to do." Alternatively
Bill Gothard has suggested "Grace
gives us the desire and the power
that God gives us to do his will."
Both of these definitions make
good sense of the word grace
throughout the Bible.
, We are to have Grace Each and
everyday, not just once in awhile.
God, miraculously fed the Israelites
as they traveled through the
wilderness, but He only gave them a
certain amount for one day at a
This was and is
one of God's principles at work ---
that we are to trust Him each and
everyday and not to worry of
tomorrow. Jesus knew the principle
when He taught His disciples to
pray. Matthew 6:11
" Give us this
day our daily bread."
God told, them
to take only enough for one day, so
there wouldn't be any left to become
rotten filled with worms, or stink.
God was letting them see He was
going to take care of them.
We all to do
this today, Trust God in all things
depend on Him for all your needs.
When we worry about tomorrow, we are
wasting today (Joyce Meyer)
that we have unanswered questions
God's ways are not our own ways, but
His ways are always the best ways.
Trust in God and learn to live one
day at a time.
God gives us
enough grace for one day at a time
and to avoid fatigue and burnout,
weariness and fainting in our minds,
we must learn to live day by day,
one day at a time. That is why Jesus
teaches us in Matthew 6:34 to
meet each days challenge as they
come and not to borrow trouble from
tomorrow. If we will do that, then
at the appointed time God's grace
will be available to us in
sufficient supply to help us face
and over come whatever may occur in
tomorrow makes us become discouraged
----so Look to God for all you need!
