Fresh Hope – 20th July 2020

“I know not why God’s wondrous grace to me has been made known, nor why, unworthy as I am, He made me for his own. 

But I know whom I have believed in and am persuaded that He is able, to keep that which I’ve committed, unto Him against that day.”

Old fashioned words from a very old hymn (1880’s) but true as ever today. I don’t know why God’s grace, keeps on loving and coming after me, I don’t know why, even though I’m so unworthy, He chose me to serve Him. But I do know this, that I continue to trust in Him and I am persuaded that He is able to look after and care for me, to never leave or forsake me and to present me before the Father on that day I meet Him. 

There are some things we can’t work out, there are some things we will never know. BUT there are some things we can be certain of – because if God’s Word says it, then it’s good enough for me. 
Have you ever wondered why God chose you? You may not be man’s obvious choice, but you are certainly God’s. Have you ever wondered that even though you may doubt and mess up, He still ‘bothers’ with you? That’s amazing grace. The grace that chases you down when you didn’t deserve it. The grace that abounds every day. It’s undeserved favour and for that I am eternally grateful. 

Don’t worry about anything. His Word says that He is able to KEEP you. Knowing that God ‘keeps’ me is precious. Keep = to continue in a specified position or course. By His grace, I am a child of God. He will keep me that way until the day I meet Him face to face. 

Thank Him today, that even though you may not fully understand the wonder of it all, He loves you and He keeps you.
