“His Grace Is Amazing”
by Dona Hake
God’s grace amazes me. In a time of my life when I knew I was to step out and do something beyond my ability… fear of failing tried to grip my heart to the point of being tempted to not step out in this area God was indeed calling me to. I can still remember the hot summer day that the Lord sent Emma Okorie to the hallway of our Christian school. After he greeted me and inquired how I was doing, I answered him honestly. I know my countenance was full of uncertainty, and he spoke these words to me, “Sister, there are surprises that God has put within you that He wants to unlock and release.” It was those words that were spoken in a most timely moment that God infused me with the courage I needed to step forward, and do the will of the Lord.

Are there things in your heart that God wants to release?  We all have special gifts and talents that are for specific purposes and appointed time, and you are the vessel in which they reside.  Exciting isn’t it? God wants to show the world the gifts He has planted in you since birth. Our God is always ready to pour out His grace that you need to do that which He desires to release in you. One thing for sure…He needs our cooperation, He needs us to step out in faith and believe that we can in fact do His will with the help of His wisdom, direction, strength, and His amazing grace.
