Grace is a gift. But, what’s inside the gift? Don’t wait for Christmas to discover the contents of your gift!
Grace is a gift from God to give you the desire to do His will and with the desire He gives you the power, strength, the ability to fulfill the purpose to which He is directing you.
For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure. – Philippians 2:13 AMP
“I now realize He doesn’t call us for what we can do for Him, but for what He can do in and through us.”Debbie W. Wilson | When You Don’t Like God’s Plan
