  5 – The Grace of God
28 – Times & Seasons

1 Thessalonians 5:28 (NKJV): The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.


Face it, we are a mess. Yes, you and I are major malfunctions, and we will be until we get home to glory. As messed up as we are, God calls us His people and sends us into the darkest places of this crazy world with a mandate and a mission to surround evil and change things for good. We are to save people from an eternity in hell.

First, He surrounds us with goodness to lead us.

Teach me to do your will; for you are my God; your spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. – Psalm 143:10 (NKJV)

After He leads us by His goodness, we are followed by His goodness.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. – Psalm 23:6 (NKJV)

Not only is He in the midst of us with His goodness, but He is also before us and behind us!

Then your light will break forth like morning and your healing will spring forth speedily; And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. – Isaiah 58:8 (NKJV)

The battle is for the eternal souls of men and women. The risks and the rewards are worth it. It’s time to step out of your comfort zone and into the battle for the lost souls that surround you. God is working behind the scenes to prepare the hearts of those He is bringing to you. Ready? Set? Go!

Declaration: Today, I will step out in faith to battle for goodness in evil places. I know that God is paving the way for me with His grace and will sustain my efforts after I have finished my fight!
