What is the true grace of God? Do we want it upon our lives? Can it be true? Could it be that Jesus knew the hidden message and power that was in this experience from the Father?
40: And the child (Jesus) grew and became strong; He was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon Him.
Let's dig a little deeper into the word "grace".
charis (khar'-ece); from NT: 5463; graciousness (as gratifying), of manner or act (abstract or concrete; literal, figurative or spiritual; especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life; including gratitude):
KJV - acceptable, benefit, favor, gift, grace (-ious), joy, liberality, pleasure, thank (-s, -worthy).
In the underlined above, we see that grace is the prophetic act of divine influence. It is through this that all prophetic impressions, visions, and influence come. For this prophetic influence to flow, we must have a dedicated line; one of understanding. A life that has the grace of God upon it is a life that understands that it comes totally from God. If you think you are a contributor to this "grace", then the line has been defiled and the "grace" is no more "grace". Could it be this simple? Could it be that g-race truly means God's-race? Our prayer is to have, like Jesus, the grace of God upon us.
