Graced Out!

Prayer Ponderings

Ephesians 1:6 ESV – “To the praise of His glorious grace, with which He has blessed us in the Beloved.”

The word “accepted” in this verse is charitoo which is from the Greek word charis meaning "Grace." In other words, He has "graced us" by placing us in His Son, Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:32“He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?”

“Freely give” is charizomai, and it too comes from the Greek word charis, which means "Grace."

Just as God "graced us" with so great a salvation (Heb. 2:3) in His Son, so does He now desire to "Grace us out." He longs to surround us with favor and honor us with blessings. "Grace us out!"

Some may think that being "graced out" means outward blessings—focusing the expectations upon the blessings and not on the Blesser! However, when we set our eyes on "The Blesser," Jesus Christ, He alone is the foundation and source of us getting "Graced Out"!

3 John 2 ESV – “Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.”

God is first concerned with us becoming "Graced Out" on the inside before He freely opens the windows of Heaven to "Grace us out" on the outside.

But beware, when the outward blessings come, there aren’t enough barns on earth to hold being "Graced Out" by God Almighty!
