SPIRIT OF GRACE!

“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication” (Zechariah 12:10).

In the book of Revelations, we see the Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ seated on the same throne on the right of Him. But the Holy Spirit is burning like the seven lamps of fire before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God (Revelation 4:5).

Holy Spirit is one only but He reveals Himself as seven burning lamps. He acts in seven revelations similar to how one hill has seven rocky peaks. This should not make us think that the Holy Spirit is seven in number.

It is the grace of God which leads all the revelations from the front. In the Scripture portions of Zechariah 12:10 and Hebrews 10:29, we read and understand what the grace of God is.   The grace of God is the one which goes ahead of all the blessings of God. The grace of God is the one which graciously grants you the Salvation. It is the one which gives you the Holy Spirit.

The factor which makes you eligible for the Heavenly Throne and which transforms you as the bride of Christ is this grace alone. “In mercy, the throne will be established; and One will sit on it in truth, in the tabernacle of David, Judging and seeking justice and hastening righteousness” (Isaiah 16:5).

The seat where God is handsomely seated is known as the throne of grace. From there, God is pouring out his immeasurable grace. David greatly praised the grace of God. “Make your face shine upon your servant; save me for your mercies’ sake” (Psalm 31:16). “But as for me, I will come into your house in the multitude of your mercy; in fear of you, I will worship toward your holy temple” (Psalm 5:7). Dear children of God, seek the grace from God. Glorify the grace of God alone.

Is it not the grace of God which elevated and anointed David who was walking in the wilderness grazing the sheep, as the king of Israel? That God has also chosen you. He has anointed you with the grace of God. He will pour on you, the Spirit of grace and the Spirit of supplication.

Even today, the grace of God is surrounding you. He has bestowed a grace on you which no other member of your family has received and has guided you protecting from the valley of the shadow of death. He has delivered you from the sinful ways and the slavery of Egypt and has filled you with His Spirit. So, praise and glorify the grace of God.  

To meditate:“But by the grace of God I am what I am and His grace toward me was not in vain” (I Corinthians 15:10).
