More Than You Will Ever Need.
Grace is the one area where God doesn’t meet your need. He overwhelms you with it. He is extravagant about Grace. There is more than you will ever need or use.
Grace puts you into a place where you are so astonished by His love for you, His kindness for you, He gentleness for you that you don’t know what to do with yourself. You’ll just have to worship. You’ll have to exalt His glory.
Grace creates this expectation for who God is and gives you extraordinary confidence.

I love the language here. It’s so rich.
“We have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished on us.”
God is always extravagant about grace.
I love that about Him.
There’s always going to be more grace than you can use, or even need. Always. Grace is the one area where God doesn’t meet your need. He overwhelms you with who He is.
He like puts you in so much grace. It’s going to be way more than you need but you’re going to meet people who will need it and they better get it off you, I guess.
Romans 5:1 –
“Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus, through whom we also have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace, in which we stand. And we exalt in expectation of the glory of God.”
That’s what grace does for you. Grace puts you into a place where you’re so astonished. You’re so amazed about the love, and the kindness and the beauty of God for you.
It’s like you don’t know what to do with yourself on days. It’s like there are days when I’m so overcome, I could levitate.
You know, I’m like, my middle daughter, whenever whenever something wonderful happens, she’s always going. “I’m so excited. I’m so excited.” And she doesn’t know what to do with herself and her whole body is vibrating with goodness.
That’s how I feel about grace. So excited. The days when I’m so overwhelmed by the grace of God, I don’t know what to do with myself and I, and you have to worship.
You end up exalting in who God is. In the nature of God, in the fullness of God. In the glory of God.
It’s like, grace creates this massive sense of expectation in who God is. It gives you astonishing confidence.
