I’m not who I once was. I’m not yet who I will be.
These two sentences reflect both the beautiful redemption and the work in progress of a follower of Jesus Christ. As believers, our salvation is complete, and yet the process of becoming like Jesus and walking into the destinies God has called us to can be challenging—especially if we forget to give ourselves grace. Grace to grow. Grace to fail. Grace to try again. Grace to overcome. Grace to succeed.
The good news is that God does not ask us to do anything that He does not also equip us to accomplish. So, when He says, “Come,” He is already extending the measure of grace that will be needed for us to follow.
In Hebrew, the letter H is illustrated by an open window that signifies “grace.”
God’s very name, YAHWEH, contains two measures of grace—He has more than you need to get the job done.
What has God called you to do? Everything you need is streaming in through the open window before you. Don’t let fear make you pull the blinds. Let His grace in, let it change you, and let it fill you with the courage to trust and obey.
