resting on grace

10 Mar
I was reading about the promises of God to Abraham, and this phrase stuck out to me,

“For this reason it depends on faith, in order that the promises may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his descendants…” Romans 4:16

I forget so easily that 
every promise from God, 
to me, 
rests on grace. 
There is nothing I can do to make them happen 
and there is no great striving on God’s part to make them come to pass. 
It all rests on the grace He has already poured out. 
In accordance with His will, the promises will come to pass 
at the exact time
in the exact way 
that he has ordained. 
In fact, my only concern is to be obedient 
and let the Lord do the rest.

My Promise Fulfiller, 
please let the freedom of this truth 
capture my heart 
and encourage me to walk daily 
resting in Your will.
