Leave Room in Your Heart for God
It’s so important for us as believers to leave room in our hearts for God, for without Him in our lives, we could not exist. His grace keeps us from falling. The songwriter put it this way, “Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I’m found, I was blind, but now I see.” His amazing grace not only saved us, but it continues to cover us day by day. Earlier I indicated that we cannot exist without God in our hearts. We might live, but we cannot have an abundant life without Him. In Galatians 1:15, we find these words:
“But even before I was born, God chose me and called me by His marvelous grace.Then it pleased Him”
Paul goes on to say, in 1 Corinthians 15:10 (KJV) “…by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain …” Grace was the secret of Paul’s new life. He connects grace with the development of his new personality. It is my prayer today, that not only have we left room in our hearts for God, but we are also grateful for the grace He so freely gives us. Thank God for His amazing grace!
