DAILY MEDITATION

Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. II Peter 3:17-18 Living Under Grace positions us through our experiences to grow. To grow implies that where we are now is not it but there is more and thus to get to the more we must expand. God’s greatest teacher is life itself, the experiences of our life are ordained by God to grow, mature, expand us. There is absolutely nothing that you have, are, or will experience in which God is not aware. All of life ex

DAILY MEDITATION

For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not. II Corinthians 8:12 Living Under Grace is a privilege God extends to those who are willing to co-create with Him the life and life more abundantly promised by Him. God released us from the law, dotting every “i” and crossing every “t,” by extending to us grace, unmerited favor if we are willing to diligently pursue Him, His purpose and plan for our lives. As you and I decide that what should be as declared by God for our life and the world we exist and work toward that, God honors that and extends to us sufficient grace to and for us. God’s grace, His strength, power,

DAILY MEDITATION

The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. Proverbs 11:25 Living Under Grace is an understanding that what we have or will have is a blessing, favor from God that challenges you and I to share. Sharing the blessings of God is the direct and implicit will of God to witness His power and love to and for us and His creation. To LIVE is to share the abundance of God’s love and power with everything and everyone in our space and beyond. After which the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of God, shall come upon us, we will receive power to be His witness. The more you give unto the space in which you exist, it flows beyond witnessing the power and love of God a

DAILY MEDITATION

Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering. Exodus 25:2 In appreciation for Living Under Grace we are obligated to offer God our whole selves, everything we have, toward the fulfillment of God’s purpose and plan for our lives, yielding our life and life more abundantly. Implicit in our receiving and embracing God’s grace is our trust and faith in God. If we believe that God has ordained the promise of abundant life for us, despite and in spite of us, then we must be willing to offer unto God what we have without hesitation of what we do not have or deserve. God’s grace is sufficient for

DAILY MEDITATION

If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth. Deuteronomy 15:7-8 God challenges you and I to open ourselves, our gifts and resources, to one another so that they too may experience the love and power of God. Our Living Under Grace, the unmerited favor of God, comes as a challenge to allow His grace to flow in and through our lives to one another. Therefore, open yourself, totally, for the working of God through

DAILY MEDITATION

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:7-9 Living Under Grace positions us to make decisions that gives toward the promises of God. We do not have to worry or fret that if we act in what should be that God will not be with us and make a way for us even if undeserving. God is true to His Word that even in the mess we created or is created to separate us from God that God will work it all out for the

DAILY MEDITATION

He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor. Proverbs 22:9 God has declared that as you give you will not loose. Give and it will be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. Living Under Grace is God’s gift to you and I that despite and in spite of the circumstances of our lives we will win, we will have favor even in the impossible. The challenge to each of us is to continue to give of ourselves and in our circumstances toward that which God has declared should be. In giving we express our gratitude for the favor, grace of God that will flow freely in and over our lives. With a bountiful eye, sight and acti

DAILY MEDITATION

There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. Proverbs11:24 Living Under Grace provides correction to the natural flow of things, obstacles and darkness that is real in life and its journey, so that what God intended will prevail. It is God’s gift unto you and I if we are willing to diligently pursue His purpose and plan for our lives to make our way plain and straight, providing all sufficiency. As we pursue God’’s purpose and plan we LIVE in the fullness of God, defying even our own expectations because of our awareness of who we are and what we do not have. Rest assured God is in the business of giving us the fu

DAILY MEDITATION

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: II Corinthians 9:6-8 Living Under Grace positions us for all sufficiency. All sufficiency implies that you have everything you need. God has promised and made real with the offering of His Son Jesus Christ that we have the right to ilife and life more abundantly through His reconciling us to God

DAILY MEDITATION

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15 God who sits high and looks low cares and watches out for us to ensure that the availability of His promise of life and life more abundantly is accessible to us. The accessibility of God promises to us depends on our willingness to diligently pursue that which He has promised. God gives assurance that if we pursue that which He has declared for our lives, His love and power will ensure that what would separate us from Him a

DAILY. MEDITATION

But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. James4:6-8 Our understanding and acceptance of Living Under Grace draws us closer to God and thus allows us to LIVE, dwell in His presence. In God’s presence there is the fullness of joy, a complete harmony with the will of God for our lives. As we operate and LIVE in the harmony of God’s plan and purpose for our lives we are better equipped, not because of our flesh, but instead our un

DAILY MEDITATION

Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Philippians 2:2-5 As people who are Living Under Grace it challenges us to serve one another as Christ serves us. The unmerited favor of God, God’s grace, is extended to us not because of how good we are or even because we do everything right in our pursuit of Him and His will for our lives but instead it is God’s act to make up for our sho

DAILY MEDITATION

Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Ephesians 5:21 Living Under Grace reflects that we do not get what we deserve but instead what God’s plan and purpose for our lives, the life and life more abundantly. Sometimes the choices for our lives do not look like they get us to the end God promised but we must stand on what He has said and believe that all things will work together for the good. It is hard to explain what looks like a setback is not one but our journey with God is evidence that God does not operate on what is seen but what He has declared. Knowing that it is grace that has kept us and saved us we must also translate that to how we engage and deal with one a

DAILY MEDITATION

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. I Peter 5:8-10 Living Under Grace places us in a unique position; under attack from any and all things that would separate us from the will, purpose, and plan of God for our lives. We must watch as we go forward, pressing our way to the promises of God. The certainly of our livi

DAILY MEDITATION

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. I Peter 5:5-7 As an identifying factor of those who believe and are Living Under Grace, they love ye one another. Loving ye one another is different and in direct opposition to loving the other. The other implies someone different as to be strange, another implies someone different but yet another version of you. God created us all, different, yes yet conne

DAILY MEDITATION

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Colossians 1:12-14 Living. Under Grace challenges us to thank God for the opportunity and privilege to get beyond our shortcomings and inadequacies to a place and position in which we can overcome them in order to LIVE. God, who is love, loves us so much that He wants the best for us, despite and in spite us and the circumstances of our lives. God as a Good Shepherd and parent sees our worth and in

DAILY MEDITATION

Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. Matthew 20:28 Living Under Grace is God’s gift to you and I that we may go forth with His will and purpose in our lives unhindered. Our primary responsibility for our creation is to reveal the glory, revelation of God and God will use you, with that as your focus, despite and in spite of your shortcomings and/or inadequacies. God has a purpose and plan for you and I that reveals who He is in the fullness of His love and power to and for humanity,. As an example of God’s love and power, God gave His Son, as a model for us to give of ourselves in our circumstances and out of who w

DAILY MEDITATION

For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:3-7 The natural inclinations of our flesh sways in the wrong direction, separation from God’s will and purpose for our lives, our abi

DAILY MEDITATION

Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: Ephesians 1:8-9 The giving of ourselves, including to our circumstances, which is in line and strategic for us to LIVE in the promises of God is key to navigating life. To appropriately and adequately navigate life in order to LIVE we must exercise wisdom and prudence. Wisdom is insight and a long term view of our decisions and actions. In order to have a long term view we must be wedded to the Spirit of God that has been given to us to lead and guide us into all truth, the fulfillment of God’s Word and promises

DAILY MEDITATION

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:28-29 Living Under Grace is about our faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen; taking a risk on what you believe should be by conceiving God’s promises for your life and working toward those. As we see what is not as if it were we can be driven by the vision knowing that what we lack, both in ability and worthiness, God supplies what is necessary to fulfill His call, promise for our lives. It does not matter who you a
