What is grace really for?

The grace of God was never intended to be abused, or used as a weapon (Rom. 6:1). As a weapon of vanity, a saint would call on 'Jesus' name with the desire that He would fight for them (2 Cor. 6:1-18). 

These saints never consider changing their own thoughts or behaviors (Rom, 12:1). Thoughts create behaviors. Behaviors create experiences. Experiences write our testimony (Rev 12:11; 1 Co 1:6;  2 tim 1:8; 1 Co 15:10).

Why you need to get this!

Gal 5:16-17 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

Walking in the spirit, engaging Jesus Christ, and abiding in Christ are not new concepts. (2 Pet. 1:21) Numerous examples are provided throughout the old and new testaments.

Having some difficulties? Read this

Hebrews 10:35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith:

Everyone has challenges. Challenges are something you believe to be difficult for you to do. They start in the head; but it's what you see or how you see it that makes it a challenge.

Towards Spiritual Maturity

After receiving birth from above (Matt 8:16, Lk 5;6, Jn 3:4; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 1:8; 2:38), the next step is to grow spiritually from a new born babe to spiritual maturity (Heb 5:12-13; 1Pet 2:2). Growing spiritual is a process that includes changes in how you see or approach solving or making decisions.

Self-Aware?

Beyond necessities, every child of God desires miracles and blessings from the Lord. But experiencing those types of blessings comes with a cost (Mat 16:24-26). You are born with desires and can make choices based on those desires.

But as a child of God who has to make choices, what kind of risk are you putting your relationship with Jesus Christ in, if you make choices without him?

How Casting my cares on Jesus healed my burns

2 Cor. 2:10 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

If you are like me, when you believe God for something you want to see results, right?
