Grace When you Need It

Grace When you Need It

It's one thing to say 'I trust you Lord' but it is human nature to worry and to look ahead with fear; 'How will I cope?' 'What if...', 'How will I ever...?', 'I can't...'; 'It will be too much...'. I've discovered it's not the power of positive thinking or even trying really, really hard that helps you overcome these fears but Jesus Himself gives us three ways to stand firm against fear and worry, to trust that grace will come when we need it:

I’ve waited too long to post this blog. I’ve been waiting for one massive revelation that will mean I forever and always feel 100% sure and secure in my identity as a child of God.

Your Identity: Whose Voice Are you Listening to? Part 2

When the Son of God also became the Son of Man, he suffered every temptation human beings can possibly experience and never sinned (Hebrews 4:15). He also did miracles, healings, deliverences, taught us about the Kingdom then said "Greater things than this will you do" (John 14:12).
