God Has All Grace

“But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you (1 Peter 5:10)

God is the God of all grace. Remember “all” means all. Grace is God’s plan. It’s His unmerited favor toward us because He so loved us.

If you need grace, God has enough because He has it all. Some people think they have to work it out on their own. Grace is rest from working it out. God will work it out. Rest in His grace.

God, who is all grace, has called us to his glory. Sin is falling short of the glory, but grace leads us into the glory. “Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Thessalonians 2:14)

No matter the trial you are going through, the God of all grace, shall perfect you, perfectly completing you to proper fitting in the purpose God has for you. He will establish, fix you firmly in your place of rest, strengthen you, and settle you on the firm foundation of the Word of Christ Jesus.

That you may have to suffer a while could mean several things. It does not mean sickness. He isn’t going to perfect you through sickness. However, God didn’t promise we aren’t going to suffer persecution for His name’s sake. During the time Peter wrote this letter, there was a great deal of persecution on the church.

Paul called the affliction of persecution for preaching the gospel a “light affliction.” “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” (2 Corinthians 4:17) Even during times of affliction, the God of all grace will continue to perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
