Today’s Promise

I Have God’s Grace and Peace

Ephesians 1:2

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.


If you are looking for peace, today’s promise is for you.

This simple promise was originally a greeting given by early Christians believers. It was more than just an “I hope you have a good day.” It was an expression of love and a confession of God’s work in their lives.

Every blessing you receive begins with God. He is the source of every good thing that comes into your life.

Every blessing begins with God’s grace. God’s grace is His undeserved blessings, favor, and gifts to you. Every day God’s grace is showered over you.

It was God’s grace that sent Jesus to the cross to pay the penalty for your sin. It was God’s grace that drew you to Christ, and it was God’s grace that saved you through faith in Jesus. There is nothing you can do to earn the grace of God.

The peace of God is the result of his work of grace in your life.

Because of God’s grace, we can look into the face of God unashamed and unafraid. The peace God promises is a peace that goes beyond your understanding. A peace that shows up when all is well, and when everything is falling apart. It is a calm confidence that God is in control and working in your life.

God’s desire for you today is to live in His peace. Since God is pouring out His grace on you today, why allow your heart to be troubled with the problems you face? Since peace comes from God, why not allow His peace to flow through you no matter what you are going through today.

Because you have absolute peace with God, you can also have peace with those around you. Since God has overwhelmed you with His grace, you can release grace in every relationship. How can you hold a grudge or refuse to forgive when God has forgiven you of so much? How can you not release the same grace he has poured out on you to every other person in your life?

Look at that promise one more time.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. – Ephesians 1:2

Confess this with me today.

Today, God’s grace and peace are flowing over me.
I live in God’s unmerited favor and blessing.
My fear and shame have been removed because of His grace.
I am at peace with God.
Because I am at peace with God I can live in peace with those around me.

In Jesus Name,
Amen

Today, God’s unmerited favor, blessing, and gifts are pouring out over you. Because of His grace, you can walk in complete peace before Him and with everyone around you.
