God’s Gift of Grace Is For Everyone
Why do you want to know God? Are you lost or just searching for deeper meaning in your life? Are you struggling, sick, disturbed, confused, hurt, betrayed, worried, stressed, restless, or just curious? Whatever the reason, God does not discriminate. He welcomes all who earnestly seek him.

Scripture of the Day:
“While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.” – Acts 10:44
Acts chapter 10 and 11 makes it crystal clear that God accepts all who come to him. That means that no matter what you have done in the past, and no matter what it is that you are doing right now that you think is unforgivable, God still loves you and welcomes you into his love and care. Like the prodigal son who left home only to return home broke and broken, God will welcome you home in his loving arms and celebrate your return.
God desires your heart. God desires your love. God desires you. Come home to him today. Seek the Lord in all that you do. Seek him with all your heart, and you will find him. Don’t expect to find the Lord if you are lukewarm. God wants all of you. Surrender your pride, surrender your fear, surrender your weakness, surrender what you think is your strength. For true strength, love, and power comes through the Lord. For God is love. God is strength. God is power. God is mercy. God is hope. God is everything good.
I call you blessed.
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your Word today. Thank you for the peace and understanding that only comes through you. Thank you for the love and joy that only comes through you. We surrender our hearts today to you Lord. We earnestly seek you first each day. We seek your presence in everything that we do. We want nothing more than to know you, and to walk in your divine purpose, in your divine authority, and in your love. Fill us with all of your Holy Spirit Lord, and all of your goodness. Wash us clean. Make us new. We surrender fully to you. And we give you all the honor and glory and praise today and forever, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
