Have you ever seen a “plasma globe” in person? The source of power in the center of the globe is continually producing small arcs of electric “lightning” which move quickly but randomly around the inside of the globe.
If a person touches a hand to the outside of the globe, there is an immediate focus of all “energy” from the source to the person’s hand. God showed this to me as an illustration of Grace and Faith.
Now I agree that “Grace” is unmerited favor and forgiveness, but it is so much more than most Christians have ever realized.
Grace is EVERYTHING God has done for us being pushed toward us in POWER!
Faith is our response of reaching out to touch His Grace.
2 Chronicles 16:9 says, “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong on behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.”
Just as the plasma globe has power running to and fro, so the Grace of God is searching for someone to “draw” His focus to them in POWER.
Jesus described HOW this takes place in John 14:10-14. He simply showed us by example how to “focus” the Father’s power to bring healing and restoration.
This is how a person is born again (Ephesians 2:8).
Your sins are already forgiven, and that forgiveness is constantly being “pushed” your way (Grace). The moment you reach out and touch His forgiveness (FAITH) a miracle happens.
Your spirit is then infused by His POWER to create a brand new Spirit inside of you. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
This is also the process to receiving healing, finances, or anything requiring the POWER (Grace) of God to accomplish it.
When Jesus said on the cross, “It is finished”, He literally meant that the covenant with mankind was fulfilled, and the power of God could be accessed by anyone who would BELIEVE.
“Salvation” has been described by many people as forgiveness of sins, and while this is true…..it is SO MUCH MORE!! It is everything the GRACE of God is pushing toward us in power.
See with the eyes of your heart and not just your natural eyes.
Jesus said many times as he was preaching… ”He who has ears to hear, let him hear…”
Paul said in Ephesians 1:18-19 that our eyes need OPENED to the “exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe”.
This ONLY comes to us through REVELATION from our spirit to our soul.
As you begin to obey Him, you will become more and more willing to believe what He says in His Word instead of applying logic and reason to every situation.
Has God put something on your heart today…?
Take a piece of paper and write it down with today’s date…Then GO and take immediate ACTION…
Reach out by Faith and allow His Power to work.
