Grace one day at a time May 15, 2014

I’ve been really encouraged by this from Betsy Childs. Kathy Keller mentions it in her singles talk in NY. I’ve been reminded how truly gracious God is in all these things. 🙂 

 
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:15-16

God will give us what we need, but he will not give it to us until we need it. He didn’t give the Israelites enough food to last through forty years in the wilderness; he gave them manna one day at a time. None of us has a lifelong stockpile of grace, but we can look forward to God’s faithfulness over a lifetime, offered to us one day at a time. ~ Betsy Childs
