Hand-Tailored Grace

I think it is pretty easy to think of God as way too important to notice much of anything about me (or anyone for that matter). After all, he’s God right? Holding the universe together, keeping Satan at bay, all that good stuff. So it really blows my mind when I stop to consider that he really does know every intimate detail about me. Not only that, but his grace is custom-tailored to meet my needs. That’s an idea that Joni Eareckson Tada talks about in my devotional for today - she says:

"First Peter 4:10 describes the manifold-literally, "multi-colored"-grace of God. Just like those varied wheelchairs, the grace God brings to your life today is hand tailored and custom designed for your individual needs.

God's grace is not one-size-fits-all. He relates to you as an individual -- a unique person created in His image. Don't fall into the trap of comparing your situation to that of others. Tell your Father your specific needs and desires, and He will fulfill you as no one else ever could."

Remember that this Friday - God knows your needs, and can meet them in ways no one else can.
