Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.
Father, we long for you continues favor upon our lives. We seek you in the midst of our circumstance. How to please you in our lives and not walk in the pleasures of flesh.
The Apostle Paul has concern for those he works with in ministry. He wants then to walk in the full measure of their faith that they believe in.
The Grace cannot be earned, it is the gift of God towards man. We must take the time to know His statutes and put them to action in our lives. Grace is but for a time, and once that time limit has been reached, there will be no more extensions applied to man.
The author is asking for the Grace God gives to those who know Him and have found this favor of God. Those who live a life in service to the King almighty. The Grace of God cannot be handled by those who do not know why Grace is applied to man. Many take advantage if Grace periods that have been given, to extend their time to pay a debt. This debt that man owes the Father cannot be set aside. The answer to the Grace that we have been given is to serve the Lord with gladness for the rest of our time.
When men give Grace periods they do it because it is what makes them look good to extend a person a specific time to get something done. We live our lives under the Grace period of men, not realizing we have been given just as much from God and more.
We can’t take advantage of who God is, He will not be mocked by men. Men should get to know the Lord through His Word, and because He extends Grace to us all. God is not willing that every man be punished to death, but that we all come to the knowledge of the truth.
