I Am Affirmations

 

20190912_083724-1“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). These are the very words of Paul, giving God all credit for who he is, and what was done through him. He knew that all the work he did for Christ, was not of himself. It was by grace___ God’s grace. Oh, what an affirmation! In this statement Paul had denied any ‘good thing’ that others may have thought he did. He refused credit. His desire was only to boast in the grace of God. Let us do the same. In this scripture I hope you can imagine how thankful Paul was that God’s grace never left him. Let us be grateful that the same grace that was with Paul is with us today. Knowing this, we also can affirm, “But by the grace of God I am what I am.”  Like Paul, we can acknowledge:

I am what I am, but by the grace of God.

I am a  warrior, not a worrier, but by the grace of God.

I am a peacemaker, not a peace breaker, but by the grace of God.

I am a lover, not a hater, but by the grace of God.

I am a fixer, not a destroyer, but by the grace of God.

I am a giver, not a borrower, but by the grace of God.

I am a stander, not a stupor, but by the grace of God.

I am a doer, not a hearer only, but by the grace of God.

I am a worker, not an idler, but by the grace of God.

I am useful, not a waster, but by the grace of God.

“The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen” (Revelations 22:21).

I will keep on thanking God for His grace. Dear Lord, I thank you for your grace that’s always with me, amen.  By Hertistine Washington/keeponthanking.com
