Every Ounce of Grace

Founders Note: Today on the blog we have our monthly contributor Victoria, she is sharing her heart on this month's theme Faithfulness. You can learn more about Victoria and her blog on the about page. 



“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.” 1 Corinthians 15:10

We all know what it looks like when faithfulness fails. We’ve felt the pain of failed marriages, broken families, and friendships that have come to an end. These failures to be faithful are difficult and yet they show us something. They show us our great need for the grace of God. 


Each time something or someone proves unfaithful, we can be reminded that God never fails at faithfulness. Each time we are unfaithful, we can be reminded that God is never unfaithful. These reminders are opportunities to help us continue to lean on Him, depend on Him, and praise Him. 


Ladies, we spend a lot of time looking for faithfulness. It really is a treasure. With God, there is zero unfaithfulness. He is faithful to His name, to His plan, to His glory, to His Son, and to His people. 


We can count on His faithfulness. It is who He is. By His grace and the blood of Christ, we find ourselves in covenant with Him. The good news of this Gospel assures us of His faithfulness. That faithfulness then goes on to declare to us that we are kept through Him and for Him and by Him. 


There isn’t much more to say than this: God is faithful. Let every ounce of grace assure you of that. It’s yours and it came from Him. 



May we be faithful to Him by the very grace that assures us of His faithfulness to us.
