And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance [possession] among all them which are sanctified [been set apart by God].
(Acts 20:32)
The grace of God causes you to be built, and it causes you to receive. If you receive the grace, the grace will cause you to receive the possession you need.

This is important, because many people think that they have to work their faith to receive, saying, "I believe, and I receive." No. Receiving is a gift of grace unto you; all you need to do is receive it. All the worry, the care, and the effort to believe are not of God. God is not holding things in store for you, saying, "I'll give it to you, but I am going to make it real hard for you to get it."

God says just the opposite. He says, "I want you to come boldly. I want you to walk on up to the throne of grace and find mercy there. I want to give you grace right now." God is your daddy; you don't have to beg Him to give you a manifestation of grace. You only have to accept that He is your father and wants to give you grace in abundance.

Prayer for Today
Father, your grace builds me up! Your grace enables me to receive! Your grace frees me from worry, anxiety, and care and gives me hope and peace for my family and myself. Thank you for your invitation to come boldly to my heavenly Father. In Jesus' name ... Amen.
