I am very happy today because the grace God has given to us is very great even when we don’t merit it, even when we made mistakes, even when we are disobedient to His instructions, even when we forget our responsibilities, His grace remain intact for us.
This week, when I drove out from my parking lodge, I parked my vehicle outside the compound and in the area were I live, there is a sticker which is given to all those that reside in the area which you have place in your windscreen through application which you have to pay 4 euros and it will last for 12 months after which you have to keep renewing it for the subsequent years because the area is an area which you need to pay as you park your vehicle. Mine got expired without knowing and as I parked the car because I have to rush and do some few things after which when I come back, I will just pick the car and drove off instead of entering the parking lodge.
When I came back, I found a note instructing me to pay a fine because my sticker has expired and I felt so bad and I have been renewing this same sticker since 2001 when I got to the area and such a thing has never happened before. The following day I went to the office that is in charge of the sticker to renew it which I renewed successfully. Then I now move to the local police station to inquire how I have to pay the fine. Friends, we are serving a God of grace even when we made mistakes, even when we forget our responsibilities, God will never abandon us. When I got to the station, I spoke to the police I met at the counter and showed the note to him, he said they are not in control of such note and as I was talking to him, another colleague of his came out from one of the offices and heard our discussion and he asked me if I have renewed the sticker now and I told him yes and he collected the note from me and told me to go that it is over. Instead of paying 100 euros, God brought out a helper from no where to solve what I felt was a problem because the man was going out. Unmerited favor of God – grace.
Our God knows how to solve every problem that confront us at any particular time. Yes, it was my error which I accept but our God is greater than our error, our mistakes, our disobedient, our sins, our battle, our unbelief.
Father, I thank You for Your grace that is upon our lives which is sufficient for us. Help us to be obedient to Your instructions so that Your power can manifest in our lives in a powerful new way in everyday of our lives in the name of Jesus Christ.
