God's grace is truly amazing and remarkable.
Throughout the Bible you will find that God's grace encourages, blesses, justifies, protects, teaches, and saves us. When we are in the midst of temptation and we feel like we are about to fall, God’s grace is there to protect us from our own evil desires and from the attacks of the enemy. Rather than try to fight the temptation ourselves, we should simply rest in God’s grace and presence and wait for the storm to pass. The Bible says that God does not tempt us (James 1:13). In addition, the Bible says that when we are tempted, God provides a way out for us (1 Cor. 10:13). Because of this, we should be reassured that God is on our side and He is a safe refuge for us in times of temptation. Our salvation and assurance of eternal life have also come as a direct result of God's grace.
Below you will find some verses that I hope will encourage you and help you to understand God’s grace a little bit more. God's grace is stronger than anything we will ever face and so my prayer for you is that His grace will keep you safe as you walk in the Spirit and seek to please Him in all that you think, say, and do!
God’s grace was given to us in Christ Jesus even before the beginning of time.
2 Timothy 1:9
God’s grace gives us eternal encouragement and hope.
2 Thessalonians 2:16
Grace and truth have come through Jesus Christ and from the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another.
God gives His grace to those who are humble.
Proverbs 3:34, James 4:6, 1 Peter 5:5
By grace we are freely justified and we have received salvation as a gift from God through our faith in Jesus. Because of this, we cannot boast about or depend upon our own good deeds for salvation.
Romans 3:21-26, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 11:6, Acts 15:7-11
We have been justified by faith (we are in right standing with God and He sees us now through the righteousness of His Son Jesus Christ). Because of this, we are now at peace with God and we have been given the ability to stand tall within the realm of God's glory and grace.
Where sin increases, grace increases all the more. God’s grace is much more powerful than any temptation we will face.
Romans 5:20, James 4:5-6
Although grace abounds where sin abounds, we should not go on sinning or use grace as a license for immorality. Since we are now following Christ, we have become dead to sin and are alive in the new life He has given us.
Romans 6:1-4, Jude 4
The temptations we face are similar to the ones everyone else faces; and God is faithful to us, He will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we can handle. When we do face temptation, God will strengthen us and enable us to emerge victoriously.
1 Corinthians 10:13
Sin is no longer our master, God is. Because of this, we are now under grace and no longer under the law. Since we are no longer under the law, we are no longer following a list of rules. We are instead enjoying a healthy and intimate relationship with God as we follow the leading of His Holy Spirit out of a heart of gratitude and love since He freed us from the bondage of sin.
God’s grace teaches us to avoid evil desires by living self-controlled lives and by making choices that are pleasing to Him.
Because of God’s own purpose and grace, we have been saved and called to live lives that glorify and honor Him. God’s grace enables us to do this by teaching us to avoid evil desires by living self-controlled lives and by making choices that are pleasing to God.

No matter what we are facing or how strong the temptation may feel, God’s grace is sufficient for us - when we are weak, then we are strong in Christ.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10, Hebrews 13:9, 2 Timothy 2:1
God makes all grace abound to us so that in all things and at all times we have an abundance to complete the good works He has called us to.
2 Corinthians 9:8
We all have received different spiritual gifts according to the grace God has given us.
We have hope that we will live forever with the Lord because we have been saved and justified by God’s grace through His Son Jesus Christ.
God is able to protect us & keep us from falling. He will keep us strong so that we will enter into His presence blameless and with exceedingly great joy on the last day.
Isaiah 38:17a, Proverbs 3:21-26, 1 Corinthians 1:8, 1 Thessalonians 3:13, 2 Thessalonians 3:3, Jude 24
